Sustainable Logistics

In today's global economy, logistics plays a vital role in moving goods and materials around the world. However, as the demand for goods and services continues to grow, so too does the impact of logistics on the environment. From transportation emissions to warehouse energy consumption, the logistics industry has a significant carbon footprint that must be addressed. This is why making logistics more sustainable is becoming an increasingly important issue for businesses and governments alike. In this article we set out the basic facts of sustainable logistics.

One of the biggest challenges facing the logistics industry is reducing transportation emissions. According to the International Transport Forum, transportation is responsible for about 23% of global energy-related CO2 emissions. The shipping industry alone accounts for about 2.5% of global CO2 emissions. Meanwhile, the aviation industry is responsible for about 2% of global CO2 emissions.

To reduce transportation emissions, many companies are turning to more sustainable modes of transportation, such as rail, electric vehicles, and alternative fuels. Additionally, companies can also explorer ways to optimize their transportation routes and reduce empty miles, which can help to lower emissions. Moreover, some companies are also implementing carbon offset programs to offset the emissions associated with their transportation activities.

Sea and Shore Services is committed to being a leader in sustainable logistics. We understand the importance of reducing our carbon footprint and preserving the environment for future generations. That's why we have implemented several initiatives to make our operations more sustainable. We are working on a carbon offset program to offset the emissions associated with our transportation activities, and we are always looking for ways to optimize our transportation routes to reduce emissions. Additionally, we are always looking for ways to optimize our warehouse layouts and processes to reduce energy consumption.

We also offer our clients the possibility to use our sustainable solutions, by providing them with sustainable logistics options, such as intermodal transportation and shortened supply chain routes.

Making logistics more sustainable is not only an important issue for the environment but also for business. By implementing sustainable logistics practices, companies can reduce their carbon footprint, lower costs, and improve their reputation among customers and stakeholders. Sea and Shore Services is dedicated to making logistics more sustainable and we are proud to be leading the way in this important effort. We are currently working on projects that can help improve the climate in the future, in collaboration with industry professionals. As experts in logistics, we are travelling towards a greener future.
