Freight forwarders as sustainability advisors in the supply chain

In its January 9 issue, Diario del Puerto featured the milestones hit by EccoFreight during the last year and the challenges ahead.

With sustainability in the spotlight of the logistics sector, many of the companies that take part in the supply chain have decided to look for a less polluting alternative in logistics management, thinking of freight forwarders as sustainability advisors in the supply chain.

Ever since it was founded in 2014, EccoFreight has focused its freight forwarding services on the assessment and reduction of the carbon footprint of its customers’ logistics operations.

In more than five years, the firm has consolidated its position with a turnover of more than 25 million euros and a staff of around 30 employees in three Spanish cities: Madrid, Valencia and Seville. It also has partners in Asia and other areas of the world and has solid plans to soon strengthen its presence in the United States, more specifically in Miami.

Diario del Puerto highlights the launch of Eccologistics 360, a platform created by EccoFreight and designed to share its methodology for measuring and reducing carbon footprint with the freight forwarding sector. By using the Eccologistics 360 platform, which will be launched in the coming months, any company that already has its own logistics operations covered will be able to use this tool to keep the environmental impact of its freight forwarding operations under control at all times.

According to Fernando Giménez-Guervós, CEO of EccoFreight, “2019 has been a fantastic year for us, with a growth of more than 27% in turnover. However, we want to continue growing and adding value. That is why in 2020 we want to extend our EccoLogistics 360 platform to the entire freight forwarding sector.”

A new year starts for EccoFreight: a year to grow the company’s commitment to sustainable logistics even more and help other parties in the supply chain do the same.
