Getting to grips with CO2 emissions in your supply chain

Each year, the transportation of billions of tonnes of cargo via planes, trucks, ships, and trains accounts for approximately 8% of global greenhouse gas emissions, making the logistics sector a notable contributor to worldwide CO2 emissions.

Continuous Growth: The Importance of Training and Development in the Supply Chain

A great workplace stands out by prioritising its people. With Australian logistics workers spending 42 hours weekly on the job—30.35% more than the national average—supporting the team's wellbeing is essential. Inadequately trained or overworked team members risk compromising customer satisfaction, leading to damaged freight and financial losses. A truly exceptional workplace fosters continuous learning, provides growth opportunities, and prioritises the team's welfare. 

The Crucial Connection: Biosecurity and Logistics

In the logistics industry, where the global movement of goods is constant, stringent biosecurity protocols are indispensable. Importers must provide essential documents and adhere to strict protocols. Navigating these procedures can be daunting, but Mainfreight offers invaluable assistance. With dedicated air and sea freight depots, temperature-controlled storage and fumigation services, Mainfreight ensures smooth transportation while meeting biosecurity requirements.
