Transportation & Logistics

The transportation and logistics sector is very fragmented and has different main issues depending on which business model the specific organisation is in:

• Carrier (land-based transport, inland waterways, sea transport, air transport)
• Freight forwarder
• Production and/or retail company with intra-logistics installations
• Public transport

At least for carriers and freight forwarding companies it’s a fast and highly competitive business with relatively easy access for customers to specific carrier platforms which enable the comparison of rates and prices. Intra-logistics solutions require some major investments, e.g. in automated or semi-automated high rack warehouses.
Challenging major trends are issues like the last mile solution in urban logistics, the pressure to reduce carbon emissions, same day delivery and data provision on environmental indicators as well as optimising time-distance relationships in every transportation process (in-house, delivery, intercontinental).
In terms of transport’s decarbonisation, public transport systems are playing an increasingly important role. An intelligent and appropriate link between individual means of transport, goods transport and public transport is needed in future.

What we offer

  • Implementation of environmental management systems according to ISO 14.001
  • Sustainability Reports
  • Energy efficiency audits
  • Improvement the environmental impact of transportation
  • Optimising logistics in terms of service level, costs and the environment

Our Services

Measuring performance with appropriate indicators is a must for every company’s sustainability programme. These indicators include transportation, either as a part of the supply process and internal activities or as part of the delivery process. Thus, service providers in the transportation & logistics sector are increasingly required to report customer-related specific carbon emissions for dedicated shipments.

Sustainable sourcing in terms of availability and risks is an additional must and goes beyond the merely cost-oriented decisions of the past. A multi-criterial approach is necessary, taking into account additional aspects like environmental and social impact, human rights, corruption or critical materials as well as questions of sustainable transport.

A report is not only a piece of paper which is supposed to be ready on day X. It can also be used as a management tool which supports the development of a solid sustainability programme and related actions.
We love reports. We love creating the content, we love developing the right indicators and taking a close look at the different trends, and we love creating the stories. And we do not have to tell you that our reports comply with the different international standards (GRI, IIRC, SDG), do we?
