Sustainability is core to our business and embedded in our operations.

Our Approach

We are committed to a broad range of environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) commitments that elevate our business, create value for our investors, support our employees and customers, and show respect to the local communities in which we work.

Our focus on improving efficiency across our businesses through the use and integration of data and technology is what sets us apart. As a result, we are able to reduce consumption, better manage assets and invest capital more efficiently, which in turn generates better returns, reduces costs and supports our global employees.

We are committed to making sustainability a core component of our business in order to build a better future. Our policy and initiatives are designed to support our progress in developing ESG commitments and further integrating sustainability into our business and investment decisions.

The integration of various types of technologies including data analytics, robotics, automated clearance systems, digital loading docks, smart sorting, telematics, fleet management systems, and Internet of Things (IoT) are all designed to increase efficiency.

G7 Fleet Management

Our G7 fleet management solutions are used by 1.5 million trucks in China, representing 90% of China’s leading trucking companies; sensors track detailed information on trucks, drivers and cargo in real time, thus enabling a real-time view of fleet operations and the flow of goods. Processes that used to be manual, such as dispatching, are now automated, allowing for much more precision and complexity, while predictive analytics and safety features mean fewer accidents.
