ICT France and ICT Iberica are rewarded for their performance
Carrefour France, a major player in European distribution, awarded ICT France and ICT Iberica for their highest quality of deliveries to its warehouses since the beginning of the Covid crisis.
ICT France's Supply Chain Director, Eric Grousseau, had the privilege to receive this award on behalf of ICT.
As pointed out during the presentation of the prize, this performance is all the more remarkable since it was achieved while the health crisis severely penalized deliveries to Retail Chains ; ICT France and ICT Iberica obtained a service rate of 99.6%. As Carrefour pointed out, this is the best rate of all the companies producing the Carrefour brand.
“Congratulations to the Supply Chain teams of ICT France and ICT Iberica who have implemented agility and flexibility for our customer.”

A novelty for sustainability and environmental protection
A system improving the efficiency of the press section installed on the PM31 of ICT France. The new system facilitates the drainage of the water by increasing the temperature of the paper entering the suction press, thanks to the recovery of the thermal energy of the hood exhaust air, and consequently reduces the need for electrical and thermal energy, required for drying the paper and thereby contributing to a reduction in CO2 emissions.
