  • Speeding up the modernisation of our fleet (norm euroV),
  • Using synthetical lubricants in our engines,
  • Improvement of our tires.

2. The fuel : Learning how to better manage its consumption

  • Using embedded telematics,
  • Choosing the "Stop&Start" mode of propulsion.

3. The drivers : Keeping the human at the center of the process

  • Training in "eco-driving",
  • Energy-saving actions.

4. Organisation of the transports : Rethink the organisation from A to Z

Certification OEA/OAS :

LETNA obtained in 2010 the status of "Opérateur Économique Agréé" (OEA/OAS), awarded by the Customs Administrator. This international status, recognized in 141 countries and recommended by the World Customs Organization (WCO), aims at certifying the enterprises of the logistical chain that have proved they were able to secure the traceability of their flow.

What the OEA/OAS certification implies is :

  • Time saving on the material and paper checks by the customs,
  • The priority in case of a control,
  • Less details to leave when reporting,
  • Easier access to customs simplifications.
