Transport and logistics
Driving sustainable improvement across the supply chain.
Supporting the journey to net-zero
Since the COVID-19 outbreak, the UK’s transport and logistics sector has become the backbone of our economy. But pressure is mounting on the sector’s ability to support sustainable supply chains and the ever-increasing demand from the public.
The sector faces many challenges as we transition to a net-zero future. Impacted by driver shortages and disruptions due to geopolitical factors adding unprecedented demand and pressure to the sector, managing energy and adapting more sustainable operations may have fallen down the priority list.
Rising energy and fuel prices have impacted already tight margins for many businesses. And as an energy intensive industry, organisations are already under a lot of pressure from government to transition to cleaner transport alternatives.
Driving an effective procurement strategy
When operating with these cost pressures, it’s important your firm has a strong energy procurement strategy in place. Through a combination of market insight, agile risk management strategies and collective buying power, we can help your business save money, forecast expenditure and manage price risks more accurately.
Renewing your focus on reducing emissions and investing in greener infrastructure can also support you to mitigate rising costs, operate more efficiently and act more sustainably to satisfy your supply chain.
