SkyCell and Ivoclar Group: Pioneering Sustainability in Reverse Logistics

Supply Chain Innovation & Sustainability Quest

In a groundbreaking move towards sustainability, SkyCell have forged a strategic partnership with Ivoclar Group, a prominent dental and medical company. Together, we aim to optimize reverse logistics processes and significantly reduce carbon emissions, marking a significant step forward in environmental responsibility within the industry. 


At the core of this partnership is our shared vision to address the inefficiencies and environmental impact of traditional logistics practices. By leveraging our collective expertise and resources, SkyCell and Ivoclar Group are pioneering a sustainable approach to reverse logistics.  

This innovative solution, of filling our SkyCell containers with Ivoclar pallets is made possible through the support of logistics partners such as Fischer Road Cargo and DSV Air & Sea, demonstrates the power of reimagining traditional frameworks. 

The impact of this partnership extends beyond mere efficiency gains. By optimizing freight efficiency and minimizing waste, SkyCell and Ivoclar Group are projected to save approximately 350 tons of CO₂ emissions annually. This significant reduction in carbon emissions underscores our commitment to environmental conservation and sustainability. 

For us at SkyCell, sustainability is not just a goal; it’s a fundamental principle that guides our operations. By partnering with Ivoclar Group, we are reaffirming our dedication to reducing environmental impact throughout the supply chain.

Paulo Baumgartner, Head of Operations Supplier & Procurement at SkyCell, emphasizes: “As highlighted in a recent MIT study, tracking emissions from reverse logistics remains a significant challenge for most pharmaceutical companies. By integrating Ivoclar pallets into our hybrid containers, we optimize freight efficiency, leading to reduced CO₂ emissions bringing us closer to our goal of climate neutrality.”  

The collaboration between SkyCell and Ivoclar Group showcases the practicality and advantages of sustainable logistics practices within the industry. By actively participating in this transformative partnership, we encourage others to join us in embracing environmentally responsible solutions.
