Despite this FlexFR8 is wholly committed to making a worthwhile contribution to the environment through sustainable business practices.

Knowing that we operate in a sector that is among the largest producers of CO2 emissions, we have taken it upon ourselves to ensure that we are fully compliant with global standards subscribing fully to the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
As well as seamlessly digitising our business, we contribute positively to environmental sustainability by reducing paper waste as well as travel time. These small changes amount to a larger contribution to a more a sustainable business and also reduce the chances of error that can be made when tasks are performed manually.
Our platform promotes sustainability by providing end-to- end visibility resulting in a reduction in operating costs while providing better choices for our customers to manage their resources and improve risk management.
We provide end-to-end supply chain data in addition to real time data about your shipments. Our
machine learning tools ensure that we optimise your shipments.
We give clients the option to make their shipments more sustainable through our platform which allows the tracking emissions to help know how much it would cost to offset them, whilst helping them reduce their carbon footprint through carbon offsetting.
The transportation and logistics industry contributes 13% of the net global emissions. Moreover, this number keeps growing, because of the increasing demand for commodities around the world. Digitization bundles and connects the available data across the supply chain. This process is an important factor that could contribute to sustainability.
