Challenges in our society, translated into five megatrends for the future

Our society is changing at dazzling speed. This has an impact on how we live (today and tomorrow) and what the future of our planet looks like, which must not be underestimated. As Montea has both feet firmly planted in the logistics and spatial sectors, we have an enormous impact and therefore responsibility also. So we asked ourselves the question: what are the burning issues in our society and in which of them can we play an important role? Where is our biggest impact and how can we exert a positive influence?

The exercise identified five themes. Five megatrends that are inevitably part of Montea's future. With these themes in mind, we eventually drew up our materiality matrix and are working towards our ESG targets for 2030 and 2050.

3. Liveable city

Millions of parcels cross our cities every day. But the city is first and foremost a place in which to live - the less traffic and transport, the more liveable. That is why we strive for sustainable, smart and clean urban distribution.

Sustainable urban distribution ranges from electric cargo bikes to more efficient loading for transport. The following aspects are undeniably linked thereto and are part of our vision for the future:

  1. We deploy electric or hybrid means of transport or other alternatives by providing the necessary infrastructure.
  2. We build hubs on the outskirts of the city, so that smaller and sustainable vehicles can bring goods into the city.
  3. The distribution capacity is shared among ourselves - including competitors - whereby we encourage our customers and help come up with innovative solutions.
