Transportation is the second worst polluting industry, after energy, representing 28% of all carbon emission. Companies can heavily reduce shipping distances by printing locally.
When companies ship prints across boarders they often experience issues with customs, both in terms of costs and stalled deliveries. This results in frustration and problems when prints are delayed for trade shows and conferences.
Due to lead time and problems with shipping, companies often aim to reduce how often they ship new materials. This inevitably results in outdated marketing collateral being used, or even worse, not having marketing materials at all.
Using uncontrolled print houses in developing countries comes with a risk of breaking international labor laws.
By printing locally, shipping distances can be reduced by up to 90%. Gelato has fully integrated with local printers and local shipping suppliers, enabling just in time delivery and end-to-end tracking of orders. Read how Hydro Extruded Solutions changed how they managed printing.
The core if what Gelato delivers is quality. Printing consists of chemical processes and color consistency can never be achieved 100%, even when printing at the same print house and same print machines. By printing on the same type of print machines and paper types we are able to close the gap as much as possible. Read more about Gelato's quality guarantee here.
