The Green Freight Asia (GFA) Annual Forum will facilitate the official launch of two brand new developments:

  • A new set of training modules, developed by GFA in partnership with BSR, that are designed to help both shippers and carriers of road freight in Asia effectively lower CO2 emissions and fuel consumption

Additionally, attendees will: 

  • Receive insights about the new "Framework for Logistics Emissions Methodologies" first hand 
  • Enjoy free GFA training sessions on green optimization strategies and technologies for carriers, shippers, and buyers
  • Learn about the power of the GFA Label and how you can receive the GFA Label for your company 
  • Network with peers and green leaders—participants of previous GFA Forum include industry leaders like Heineken, HP, Lenovo, Ikea, DHL, UPS, Infineon, Baxter, and P&G.

This year's forum will be held in conjunction with the Supply Chain Asia Forum 2016.
