Transport & Logistics

Transport & Logistics


Our globalized economy relies on competitive transport and logistics solutions, which are vital for world trade. With increasing societal and regulatory expectations for the sector's positive contribution to a low-carbon economy, collaboration and innovation are required to ensure sustainability.

BSR works with companies and stakeholders across the supply chain to address sustainability expectations and integrate ethical, social, and environmental practices into the global logistics value chain. 

In addition to strategy and reporting work with companies in the sector, BSR facilitates and provides expertise for two key maritime industry platforms. The first is BSR's Clean Cargo Working Group (CCWG), a collaboration of global shippers, carriers, and logistics providers dedicated to improving environmental performance in maritime transport management. The second is the Maritime Anti-Corruption Network (MACN), a new initiative developed by the maritime industry to tackle corruption in all forms.
