Royale International is a dedicated company providing a wide range of business-to-business services since 1993.

From very humble beginnings back in our original Kowloon Bay office in 1993 through to present day, we have undergone a tremendous journey that has seen us become one of the world’s leading privately-owned logistics companies.

Our two founders, John Fawcett and Dean Locke, began the company by undertaking deliveries themselves across the city and instilling the work ethic that remains in effect today.

The early 2000’s saw rapid expansion of our network across the globe and Royale is now represented by 42 offices across the globe.

Crystal Palace F.C.

Royale International are delighted to have joined up with Crystal Palace Football Club as their Official Logistics Partner. One of the predominant reasons for partnering up with CPFC is because of similar key values the club supports. Crystal Palace tries to give back to the community by being involved in setting up schools and academies, engagement in disability sport, and supporting family health and wellbeing.

We support the proactive approach the club has and is therefore proud to be Crystal Palace’s official logistics sponsor.

Biodegradable packaging

Royale International recognises that the logistics business model impacts the environment. Therefore, Royale International is working hard to offset emissions and has shifted towards the use of biodegradable packaging.

All our courier pouches are equipped with Breakdown Plastic (BDP). BPD is organic plastic and biodegraded with polymers and minerals which are added into the plastic during the manufacturing process. Once these natural substances enter soil, landfills, and oceans, they attract microbes to fully digest the plastic.

Under these circumstances, the BDP products turn plastics into non-toxic minerals to enrich soil, and to produce agriculture raw materials. As a result, plastic usage is reduced by 50%, leaving behind CO2, CH4 and biomass.

BDP has obtained the following accredited certificates:

Check Mark on Microsoft Windows 10 May 2019 Update  Marine tested via ASTM D6691
Check Mark on Microsoft Windows 10 May 2019 Update  Toxic Elements OECD 207 & 208
Check Mark on Microsoft Windows 10 May 2019 Update  Toxic Ash & Smoke tested
Check Mark on Microsoft Windows 10 May 2019 Update  Landfill tested via ASTM D5511

Biodegradable in Landfills – By adding BDP to plastics at a 1% let down ratio, our BDP plastic pouches have embellished biodegradation in landfill conditions, enabling plastics to naturally decompose in a few years instead of centuries.

Decontaminated Energy Source – By means of the integration of BDP and plastics, CH4 is collected as a relatively clean energy source. Consequently, this biodegrading matter is broken down in a short time frame, lessening the risk of polluting oceans or landfills.

Recyclable – The BDP ingredient does not affect the recyclability of plastic. Consumers can still recycle their pouches and turn them into new, remanufactured products.

Clean and Safe – BDP plastics do not produce any residue after completing the biodegradable procedure. The remaining materials are all organic and natural, allowing microbes to access the polymer chains and consume them.

Royale International x Sustainability

Royale International is committed to connecting the world in an environmentally friendly manner. We aim to minimize our negative impact on the planet by contributing to local communities, enhancing carbon efficiency, and providing eco-friendly logistics services.

Royale International - ReDress - circular economy

Royale International is a firm supporter of Redress, an environmental charity that promotes sustainable development.

Throughout a garment’s life cycle, waste is increasing, having 57% of discarded clothes going to landfill each year. Consumers get new clothes too frequently and often decide to throw away their old clothes, instead of sending them to charities or environmental organisations. If consumers continue to follow the model of ‘Buying more clothes, wearing them less and throwing them in the bin faster’, the impact on the environment will be detrimental.

To contribute, Royale International is a sponsor of the ‘Get Redressed Month’, in which we integrate the values of reducing clothing waste, and build awareness for mindful consumption.

Royale International x Returns

Returns are another focal point of Royale International’s sustainable focus, aiming to contribute to the circular economy and optimise user experience. E-commerce sales grew by 46% in 2020 compared to 2019 due to convenience and round-the-clock availability.

However, this has led to an increase of clothing waste in case customers do not use their purchased products. Unused products are eventually dumped in the landfills, producing more greenhouses gases and emissions. Through our E-commerce returns solutions, end-consumers can easily return their purchased items if those do not suit them. As a result, returned products can be reused or recycled instead of having to produce new products.

Contribution in SMART city logistics

Our PUDO networks provide customers a wide range of locations for picking up E-commerce orders and dropping off returns. As a result, delivery time and overall fuel consumption decrease.

Conversely, residential deliveries have a huge environmental cost. Approximately 1 out of 5 E-commerce consumers has attempted to reschedule deliveries as they were not at home. In these cases, a second or third delivery attempt must be made. Every failed attempt increases carbon footprint, which is why Royale International provides a large variety of PUDO points for customers.

Parcels delivered to a PUDO location reduces the overall number of journeys, fuel consumption and delivery vehicles needed. It is expected that the use of PUDO networks will cut down emissions by 10%, and congestion by 30% in 2030.

Royale International is open to new ideas and collaborations on how we can make further contributions in this area.
