Sustainability

Sustainability is for us the way we carry out our core activities as a logistics service provider. We are aware of the social and ecological impact of our activities and take our social responsibility by running our business not only from an economic starting point, but we also include social and environmental aspects in the decision making processes.

Our ambitions and focus areas have led to an overall CSR program: 'We care for our customers, environment and community'.

 


Sustainable innovation

Our  ambition “Making (y)our logistics sustainable”, means that we intend to support our customers to achieve their sustainable goals also. Therefore we are continuously developing sustainable solutions. The ECO-service for international groupage shipments is a recent example of our sustainable solutions and innovations.


CO2 reduction

As a winner of the Lean and Green Award in Belgium and the Netherlands, Mainfreight has guaranteed reducing carbon emissions of the domestic fleet by 20% in five years. Besides that, we are intensively working on the CO2 efficiency of our international fleet and reducing the energy consumption of our buildings.


Profiting from collaboration

Next to internal measurements Mainfreight focuses on optimisations in the entire supply chain, by intense cooperation with our customers, partners and suppliers. We also contribute by means of workshops and presentations, to convince other companies to move into sustainable logistics.

In this perspective Mainfreight fulfills an active role within the Green Freight Europe program. The program, which was originally developed under the working title SmartWay Europe,  aims to be recognized as the leading independent voluntary program for improving environmental performance of road freight transport in Europe.


In the community

Doing business whilst taking into account the sustainable developments of the community, is a necessity for an enduring company. Wim Bosman focuses on (traffic)safety and education especially for kids, who are our future. Traffic safety is promoted in the form of blind spot mirror information campaigns. We support charity initiatives, mainly in areas where Mainfreight has its footprint. For instance, we support the Mother Teresa Foundation in Romania and team members are stimulated to join voluntary social initiatives.


Sustainable employability

Vitality, employability and competences are of great importance for a sustainable Mainfreight. An enduring company is build by many good people, not a few. Our approach has always been to provide young, intelligent and passionate people with the tools to build their own careers through their own initiatives. By cooperations with educational institutions and government we intend to align educational programs and required competences.
