Mantrac Group: Eco Commerce Milestones

May 14, 2019

Mantrac Distribution, formerly known as Mantrac ITD, has come a long way on the journey of Eco-Commerce transformation since its establishment in 1997. Preserving and improving the condition of natural capital has always been an integral part of Mantrac Distribution’s CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) model where decision-makers are continuously investing in eco-friendly solutions that integrate sustainable development practices as well as value creation.

The first milestone Mantrac Distribution successfully reached in its eco-commerce transformation was dropping its paper consumption for running business operations to minimum to help save trees. The adopted approach for this milestone was automating most of the business operations processes by deploying an ERP system that integrates all business modules needed to generate a full paperless documentation cycle. Not only did this drop paper consumption by 60%, it also saved time, labor, and expenses.

The second milestone set by Mantrac Distibution was to decrease dispatching fuel consumption to counterfeit air pollution. This was quite challenging because it required delivering orders door-to-door instead of having each customer commuting back and forth the premises and the warehouse. And so, Mantrac Distribution built a centralized warehouse with a dispatching center to deliver all orders door-to-door. This solution dropped commuting and fuel consumption by 40-50% for all their customers.

The latest eco-commerce transformation practice put into action by Mantrac Distribution is their big shout out to all their customers to overcome their need for printed invoices by switching to the new electronic invoices eco-service. Electronic invoices are legal VAT commercial invoices issued by the ERP system following the terms and regulations of Egypt Commercial Law. These e-invoices are submitted to customers by the Sales Admin. Team in a timely, simple, and secure manner. For more information on how to register for the electronic invoices eco-service, please go to https://www.mantrac-distribution.com/news/electronic-invoices.

This is a call from Mantrac Distribution to all companies in the commercial sector to be mindful of their everyday choices and to sponsor eco-friendly practices and solutions on ground and all around because each action will have a positive impact on the environment, the society, and sustainable development.
