Reliable and trustworthy

We make 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
