“The boom in e-commerce, fuelled further by the pandemic, has boosted the value of environmental consideration within the logistics industry. Historically considered the ‘step child’ of the more glamorous transportation industry and a haven for lower-skilled, lower-cost, highly manual roles (such as picking, sorting and moving goods), the technological developments will undoubtedly have an impact on the people working in the logistics sector.
With so many initiatives involving ‘green’ technology (such as electric charging, drone deliveries, etc.), the logistics industry is set embrace the “E” of ESG wholeheartedly, while the “S” and “G” have remained the grundnorm for all successful companies.”
