We developed the Smart Freight Leadership framework as the foundation of our strategy together with our SFC Advisory Council of leading experts. We use this framework to help companies become Smart Freight Leaders and advocate for governments and other organizations to support them. So far, 10 companies have been recognized for demonstrating Smart Freight Leadership.
We created theGLEC Framework as the only globally recognized methodology for calculating and reporting logistics GHG emissions by companies across the multi-modal supply chain. The framework has been recognized by the GHG Protocol, CDP, programs, tools and several industry associations as well as the UN-led Global Green Freight Action Plan. Almost thirty multinationals adopted the GLEC Framework and many more are exploring this.
Together with our Smart Truck Fleet Management council we developed Smart Transport Managers Training as a scalable product to help trucking companies to take actions towards ''smart freight''. The training was launched in China in 2017, since then 80+ Smart Transport Managers were trained. The training is now being rolled out in Europe, South Africa and Australia.
The Smart Freight Procurement Framework, developed with WBCSD and WeMeanBusiness support, helps buyers of freight services make zero-emissions freight an integrated part of their procurement practices and will be released in summer 2019.
In China, we brought multinational companies together with their carriers, the government and other stakeholders in a series of Smart Freight Forum workshops to drive action and supportive policy. Workshop topics range from multi-modal freight and fleet management to emissions reporting and urban freight.
