Reliable and trustworthy logistics

We do business with respect for our surrounding environment and employees.
As a global player and contributor to society, we focus on making sure that the impact we make is positive

Our responsibilities

Being a trustworthy supplier of transport and logistics takes more than providing deliveries on time. It also means taking an attitude towards some of the challenges we may face in our global society. We protect our values, our integrity and the world we are part of. And we want our clients to know that we keep our promises.

Code of Conduct and ethics

Since issuing our first Code of Conduct, we have been implementing new standards into our ethical guidelines, and we are continuously adjusting our code of conduct in order to follow global patterns of responsible behaviour.

We care for reliable and devoted suppliers believing that the industry has a joint obligation.
