Sustainability is one of the most important and complex challenges facing the world today.
Yet, 28% of supply chain companies still don’t have a sustainability strategy in place, according to “Real-Time Visibility and Sustainability in Europe’s Logistics Sector”, a Europe-wide survey of more than 200 supply chain stakeholders from Transporeon Sixfold and Transport Intelligence (Ti). A further 20% have a sustainability strategy that is less than two years old, highlighting the general lack of maturity across the industry.
