Our Sustainability Journey

Not your typical freight ferry & tunnel agent

At Freightlink, we're proud of what makes us different. Unlike our competitors, we put sustainability at the forefront of our goals.

"All businesses should be doing their part to support the environment, but those of us in the logistics industry have additional responsibilities. Our mission is to optimise the sustainability of our own offices, while also providing education and support for our customers. We are excited to be rolling out more improvements and sustainability projects in the coming years." - Erin, Sustainability Lead

For us, sustainability isn't a buzzword

Every month, one member of our team is nominated to spend a day volunteering for a local charity of their choice. For example, Stephen, our Head of Marketing, recently took part in a community clean up by the River Ribble, which is near the Freightlink office.

We’re making our commutes greener

All of our company cars are hybrid or electric and we have electric vehicle chargers available on site.

Meanwhile, thanks to our cycle to work scheme, we’re pedalling our way to a healthier, happier, and more eco-friendly commute.

The future is renewable energy

At Freightlink HQ, it isn’t only our excellent team that makes us who we are. We’re also powered by 100% renewable energy and use photovoltaic solar panels on our office roof to generate electricity.

Reduce, reuse, recycle

We acknowledge that protecting the environment is our responsibility, which is why waste produced at our office is recycled accordingly.

Knowledge is power

That’s why we were among the first companies to inform our customers about the upcoming EU Emissions Trading Scheme, also known as the ‘carbon tax’. As our industry gets greener, we anticipate tighter legislations for traders and keeping our customers in the loop is essential. Stay on top of Green Shipping News by signing up to our mailing list.

And that’s not all…

In the coming months and years, we will be continuing to innovate to make sure that we do our part for the planet - while also making it easier for our customers to do the same.
