Shipper Perspectives: Making a Commitment to Decarbonization
A decade ago, freight transportation sustainability initiatives started to take shape at global multinational shippers. But the impact of those initiatives tended to be moderated by the realities that shippers continued to prioritize rates and service over greener options. Shippers also faced a lack of products to truly measure the environmental impact of their supply chains, not to mention the direct and indirect service providers upon which they relied. But a lot has changed. Some shippers are laser-focued on carbon neutrality and they are bolstered by a burgeoning array of tools from software providers and 3PLs to help them measure those impacts. This session with the head of transportation at the world’s largest beauty care company will focus on what shippers can do to truly change the nature of logistics sustainability.
