Corporate shipper climate goals driven by ESG (environmental, social, governance) initiatives are increasingly impacting dialogue between beneficial cargo owners and their carriers and forwarders. Maersk says more than half of its largest customers have set or are in the process of setting ambitious science-based or zero-carbon targets for their supply chains, data it cited in its August announcement of plans to acquire eight 16,000-TEU ships powered by carbon-neutral methanol. For logistics teams needing to understand where this is headed and how they can stay ahead of the curve, this session will prove illuminating. It will answer questions such as:
· What are the expectations of logistics teams and mandates placed on them from senior management?
· What are shippers’ expectations of transport/logistics providers and are the providers able to meet those expectations?
· Where are the gaps and what can be done to plug them?
· How can logistics teams support corporate goals to reduce emissions from vendors, i.e. Scope 3 emissions?
