Further decreasing our carbon footprint; increasing our green forwarder imprint

As a business we are committed to avoiding negative and enhancing positive impacts on our people, society and the global environment. We want to leverage our core strengths, resources and combined abilities to address and help provide solutions to local, regional and international challenges – and in particular human rights, labour rights and the environment /climate change – through innovation, investment and collaboration with similar minded partners.

As a non-asset owning 3PL freight forwarder, 99% of our carbon footprint is generated by our customers’ shipments on planes, ships and trucks that we do not own or operate. (This is the standard industry model – and we can choose who and how to work with similar minded suppliers.)

But that doesn’t diminish our determination to be carbon neutral, or support our customers’ in achieving the same ambition.

Collaboration is key, in driving down their supply chain emissions, which is why we work with the Global Logistics Emissions Council (GLEC), Smart Freight Centre, EcoTransIT and carriers, to evaluate and endorse our technology, in creating a standard for measuring CO2 emissions and helping our customers transition to low carbon supply chains.

Originally designed as part of our 4PL platform the MVT Eco module has been integrated into our operating systems, and continues to be improved and further enhanced, to monitor the carbon footprint, energy consumption and exhaust gas emissions, of every consignment we move – by every transport mode and type – which means that every customer can monitor the environmental impact of their supply chains and participate in offset projects that eradicate their CO2 foot print.

To provide certainty and confidence, our software is accredited by the Smart Freight Centre to be in accordance with the Global Logistics Emissions Council (GLEC) Frame­work and also meets the requirements of EN16258 and the GHG protocol (Corporate Standard).

For our customers, free reports, that have been verified and conform to EN16258 for the calculation and declaration of energy consumption and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, will help them reduce their carbon footprint and become more resource efficient in order to accelerate the move to a sustainable, low carbon economy.

COMING SOON: We explore the unique range of offset options available for this project, that will help our customers achieve carbon neutrality and deliver value to the world, until a balance can be reached. We take and make climate control and a healthy functioning world as part of our customers future. It’s not an option anymore.
