The company started delivering small machines and other accessories of printers via 2-wheeler and 3-wheeler EVs in Delhi and Noida. For now, the company is delivering small machines and accessories weighing up to 100 kilos using EVs.

Konica Minolta, has initiated local deliveries of small machines and accessories to its consumers in Delhi, Noida, Cochin, and Guwahati via Electric Vehicles. The company has shifted to pollution-free 2-wheeler and 3-wheelers. A press released datelined Delhi 10 February 2023, says the company’s eDeliveries are delivering small machines, spare parts, and equipment under 100 kilograms to customers. It uses electric 2- and 3-wheelers in Delhi and Noida and is utilizing 2-wheelers in Kochi and Guwahati.

Expressing his thoughts on this initiative, Konica Minolta India’s managing director Katsuhisa Asari said, “Through this initiative, we aim to do our bit to reduce the impact on the environment and leave a greener presence. We at Konica Minolta believe that any opportunity you have to be green, be it in everyday life or business innovations, you should take it. Our customers have also reacted positively to our switch to eco-friendly transport. Their support has further helped us make the switch efficient and smooth.”

The Go-Green is a step towards flourishing growth in a global, sustainable world. The EVs being utilized work on rechargeable battery-based engines, leading to low running and maintenance costs as opposed to traditional fuels. The vehicles have no toxic emissions that would affect public health.

With the aim to build a sustainable tomorrow, the company has set a long-term environmental goal to reduce carbon emissions by 60% by 2030 and 80% by 2050 under Eco-Vision 2030 and Eco-Vision 2050, respectively. Konica Minolta also has a program to collect used MFPs and printers from customers and recycle them, following applicable laws. Instead of manually crushing these discarded items entirely, the partner agency recycles and reuses them as raw materials after appropriate segregation.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
