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 //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.
