“GLS continues to do our part for the environment and our latest initiative to augment our fleet with electric vehicles is part of our overall holistic effort to promote a circular and low-carbon economy,” Ms Zeng Qiao Jia, Chief Supply Chain Officer of FairPrice Group Supply Chain shares, adding “Beyond the environmental gains of reducing our carbon footprint, we are eager also to reap greater cost savings from the total cost of ownership of running an electrified fleet, where resources may be redeployed to further advance our supply chain capabilities. We urge our industry peers to join us on this whole-of-nation sustainability effort and to leave behind a greener world for our children.”
