A sustainable business

Buying transport services places a great deal of responsibility on the purchaser and there are many things you need to consider. It is not enough to merely determine that your service providers have the necessary permits to carry out their task and that they comply with applicable laws, regulations and guidelines. Carriers should also take social responsibility for their employees, think climate-smart and work proactively with all aspects of road safety. Fair Transport certification can make this easier for you. Fair Transport ensures that certified carriers work responsibly, are aware of the impact their operations have on the climate, offer employees good working conditions and focus on road safety.

A moral responsibility

Putting price before quality when negotiating a transport contract rarely if ever leads to a good deal. Transport suppliers who are selected on price alone are likely to lack other important qualities. Hauliers that are constantly under pressure to sell themselves cheaply probably don’t pay their staff realistic wages or indeed offer staff training, sensible working hours, carry out on-going equipment checks or make investments in safer vehicles with energy-efficient engines. This, in turn, compromises quality. In the end, it is not a sustainable solution for either buyers or sellers of transport services.

Together, both sellers and buyers of transport services have a shared responsibility to make a positive contribution to environment and public health. By using Fair Transport, you are replacing price competition with sustainability competition. A Fair Transport company doesn’t just tell you what they do, but also how they do it. And their actions are audited independently.

When you sign a contract with a Fair Transport certified company, you can rest assured that you are not just buying a shipment from a haulage company that meets basic legal requirements regarding road safety, emissions and the working environment. The certified company will also offer fair conditions for its drivers, consider the impact of their operations on other road users and be conscious of its energy efficiency. You are also buying services from a company that measures, openly reports and takes responsibility for its pledge to offer constant improvement.

Towards a brighter future

The need for transport services will remain stable in the foreseeable future, in fact demand is expected to grow. In turn, this means an increased responsibility ensuring that shipments are carried as safely, climate smartly and responsibly as possible.

As part of an initiative by the hauliers, Fair Transport makes a number of demands in these areas. In effect, Fair Transport is designed to ensure that sound and lawful transport services are carried out in such a way that the environment, road safety and people’s working conditions are valued and prioritized. One of the requirements for certification is therefore that union agreements apply. And it’s about time they were. Today, awareness of where goods originate, how animals are treated and whether workers are paid reasonable wages is generally high – however, few ask how items are shipped. Now the haulage industry is focusing on this placing high demands on our hauliers and the service they provide.

It is time to join the dots between ecologically produced products and ecologically aware consumers by offering sustainable transport services! In this way, the entire supply chain will come together for a responsible society.
