Road transportation necessary for the smooth functioning of business and society. Forecasts expect an increased demand for transport services. At the same time attention is focused on its impact on our way of life due to its effects on the environment, climate, road safety and working conditions. Fair Transport aims to contribute towards a sustainable transport sector.
Fair Transport means that sellers and buyers can create a transport industry that is climate-smart, responsible and safe. Transport providers that are approved for Fair Transport certification must comply with a set of requirements with regard to environmental, climate, working environment and road safety standards. It will enable Transport sellers and buyers to develop their business in line with the certification standards.

By choosing companies that are Fair Transport certified and making that certification a requirement during the procurement and contracting processes, you, as transport buyer, also take responsibility for achieving the goals you have set together with the carrier.
To make it possible to start the journey towards achieving tangible climate goals while also having the opportunity to develop within the certification framework , Fair Transport is divided into three value levels 1 – 3.
