Smart Freight Leaders in Action

Together we can mobilize a sector transformation

We recognized multinationals, including shippers, logistics service providers and carriers, who demonstrate Smart Freight leadership.

Each of these Smart Freight Leaders have adopted the GLEC Framework and moved beyond reporting to implement solutions that reduce emissions, while collaborating and advocating for sector-wide change.

This led us to seek other company success stories demonstrating Smart Freight Leadership.

Together, we mobilize a sector transformation building on practical best practices from a growing group of multinationals and their partners.

Will you join them?
