Green Freight Asia Overview
The vision behind the GFA Label is to create a green ecosystem whereby shippers can make a conscious, ‘green’ sourcing decision by selecting a carrier based on its GFA Label rankings.
Our key objective is to help lower fuel consumption across Asia-Pacific sourced road freight movements, reduce CO2e emissions from these movements and lower shipping costs across the entire supply chain.
How We Work
Successfully applying for the GFA Label is the first step for freight carriers and shippers in officially gaining their green credentials.
GFA will also further support the sharing of sustainability road freight practices to help companies to learn from them and to adopt them.
In order to ensure neutrality and compliance with data security and competition compliance aspects, GFA has engaged neutral Label assessment partners, TÜV SÜD, TÜV Rheinland, and BSR.
