Green Logistics & Sustainable Supply Chain Management

CLX Logistics is proud to be an advocate for green logistics and sustainable supply chain management practices. A sustainable supply chain goes beyond standard responsible business practices. It requires all participants to consider how their processes and actions can be supported by nature and society. Following international standards such as the GHG Protocol, we deliver a sustainable supply chain that reduces the environmental impact of your transportation operations and increases your business benefits.

While there’s no direct or straightforward path towards achieving sustainability, the right supply chain solutions can help your business achieve a bottom line defined by profit, people and the planet. Through green logistics practices and sustainable supply chain management, we minimize our impact on the environment, preserve our natural resources and fight climate change.

Our strategy to minimize damage to the environment is to reduce emissions and energy consumption at every step of our workflow, including transportation. With offices in North America and Europe, we use state-of-the-art, streamlined procedures to solve our clients’ logistical challenges while protecting the Earth.

Minimizing the Effects of Logistics on the Environment

With an increasing desire from businesses around the world to take part in green, sustainable processes across their operations, we’ve been at the forefront of developing advanced strategies that minimize our effects on the environment. With CLX as a partner, you can expect reductions in your overall carbon footprint, transportation miles, production costs, product waste and unplanned activity.

Additionally, we take steps to identify sources of pollution and waste and implement preventative and protective measures. Making the planet a greener place is about more than being environmentally aware. Companies who strive for sustainability have business advantages such as:
