About transport and logistics
Logistics and transportation companies deal with getting products and services from one location to another.
Logistics refers to how resources are handled, stored, and moved along the supply chain.
Transportation refers specifically to the movement of goods and persons from place to place, and the various means by which it’s accomplished, typically via air freight and logistics, shipping, road, and rail.
Businesses involved in logistics and transportation face a variety of environmental fluctuations which complicate their daily operations. In addition to varying fuel costs and consumer demand, they may also be subject to industry regulations and even at risk from irregular political, criminal, and geographical events.
Companies in this sector furthermore need to contend with various EHS considerations within the arenas of worker safety and environmental concerns.
- Dealing with heavy loads and potentially hazardous equipment and material
- Operating heavy machinery such as cranes, forklifts, etc.
- Optimizing transportation ergonomics for drivers
- Maximizing road safety and ensuring that drivers receive adequate and updated training
- Managing unwanted criminal events such as attempted vehicle hijackings and assaults on employees
- Recording and investigating all incidents, injuries, near misses, and non-conformances
- Complying with existing government and industry regulations regarding the environmental impact of transportation activities
- Minimizing noise pollution and tracking carbon monoxide emissions from transportation vehicles
- Reducing energy consumption throughout the logistics and transportation supply chain
- Decreasing ecological damage suffered as a result of transportation activities, such as roadkill for example
- Dealing with growing regulatory and public pressure to increase the sustainability of transportation devices and the overall logistics supply chain, and switching to ‘greener’ modes of transport such as electric vehicles
