Beyond our sector-specific context, where speed, cost and flexibility are so important, society has increasing and changing expectations of companies, particularly of large companies. Stakeholders – from employees to consumers to policy makers and influencers – expect companies to behave with integrity and fairness, operate transparently, be connected to their local communities, and play their part in addressing global challenges from health epidemics to climate change. Responding to this requires strong partnership and connectivity between public and private sector. Egytrans is an active member in a number of industry organizations that work towards these goals by providing the knowledge, networks and knowhow to inspire and inform change.
The drive towards net-zero will play a significant role in the future of logistics, both in the construction of warehouses and for operators. The sustainability drive is particularly integral to future transport developments, including vehicle pollution problems. As such the logistics sector needs to tackle the question of transport in conjunction with the sustainability agenda. In the short term, this might mean fitting abatement technology to purify emissions and eventually upgrading transport methods to fully electric.
