Strategy and focus

The logistic infrastructure is constantly changing as a result of customer demands, information technology and macro-economic conditions. For the Mainfreight this has led to a focus to increase the added value of the supply chain of our customers.

Part of our operational excellence approach is that we have set-up continuous improvement programs with our principles, in which optimizations of the supply chain are investigated and implemented by account teams as a standard approach. The continuous improvement projects are resulting in a more sustainable supply chain with mutual benefits.

The environment is very important to us and at all levels of our organization we strive to minimize our carbon footprint and protect the environment. A good example of our environmental policy is the Lean & Green Award that we have obtained.
