WHO WE ARE

WELCOME TO LESS

FIND OUT WHO WE ARE

Our economy is evolving towards digital, just as our shopping habits are increasingly orienting towards the use of e-commerce and the transformation of the way we exchange goods.

This change has modified consumer expectations in terms of speed and quality of service with highly negative consequences for the environment.

The world of logistics was set up to bring goods into stores – delivering to a few designated spaces at specified times.

The new challenge is to bring the goods to the recipients’ homes by breaking up the deliveries in terms of space (at everyone’s home) and time (everyone wants their purchases as soon as possible).

We think there is a concrete way to return to “sustainability” in this sector through the development of models and means, and by promoting a paradigm shift that will improve our existence and our well-being.

Preserving our environment by adapting effective processes that support our new habits will give us what we think it means to “live well,” and shaping our habits to pursue sustainability will allow us to look to a future that is compatible with the planet.

 

Let’s change the rules: for the right to transparency on the environmental impact of e-commerce

by making shared ecological delivery infrastructures mandatory;

making e-commerce deliveries through a network of social proximity involving locals and local businesses;

to obtain socially positive implications, especially “ZERO environmental impact.

Making green online purchases will become an everyday shared social goal.

From this comes our Mission and our motto: LESS stops, LESS miles, LESS vans, leading to LESS pollution, LESS traffic, LESS carbon footprint, and LESS costs.

In order to optimize the efficiency of processes and to avoid a greater impact on the environment and traffic, it requires concrete actions to reorganize deliveries to multiple end users rather than to a single recipient, and to modify delivery frequencies to daily rather than occasional.

 

What is our Vision?  “Reduce the environmental impact generated in the last mile of transport reaching private consumers” (B2C: business to consumer)

 
 

Our Mission

WHY CHOOSE LESS

STRENGTHS

Because it's Green

LESS will have a huge impact on the habits and expectations of the consumer who makes online purchases.

Environmental sensitivity will have a big following and represent social differentiation. Those who make purchases online will only purchase green.

Because it’s the future

More involvement by the stakeholders, consumers, and retailers that are close to the delivery points will change the paradigm and the distribution architecture in the last mile.

Because it is innovative

New disintermediated PUDO (pick-up & drop-off) concepts alongside decentralized proximity delivery systems are at the heart of the LESS project.

A technological platform based on a free software and a free cooperation network with measurable environmental impact Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).

Because it is effective

Our expertise in the construction of analysis and integration models with existing courier platforms makes LESS the ideal laboratory to implement that first phase of ecological transition that has become central to current public government activities.

Not just software: low-tech goods sorting and preparation systems, ergonomic backpacks with dual pedestrian / biker function, carts, etc.
