The Better Way Program: Quebec’s first pooled transportation program for the furniture industry
Last December 1st, the QFMA launched the first supply chain optimization program for the furniture manufacturing sector in Quebec.
The objective of this program is twofold:
To reduce the ecological footprint of the furniture industry in Quebec
To allow manufacturers to lower their transportation costs, giving them an advantage over the competition.
The reduction of greenhouse gas emissions is an important concern for the QFMA and its members. Indeed, the Association believe that through the pooling of transportation, the industry can and must do its part in the reduction of the consumption of fossil fuels.
The program, supported by the Ministère de l’Économie et de l’Innovation, is being implemented in collaboration with Cedric Millar, Canada’s leading 4PL provider, which offers supply chain solutions in Canada and the United States.
This program aims for major improvements in terms of cost savings, competitiveness, efficiency and the environment. The QFMA will actively promote the program to its members and have confidence that a large number of companies will eventually join.
