Sustainability at Best Global Logistics

Our responsibility extends beyond providing high-quality logistics solutions.

We align our services, practices and partnerships around a single mission — to encourage sustainable logistics.

Commitment to sustainability

At BGL, we believe it is our responsibility to contribute to a carbon-free future. This means we make decisions and take steps to reduce the impact of our business operations on the environment. 

We employ practices that reduce CO2 emissions and increase the sustainability of our supply chain.

Let's take the green steps together

As a global freight forwarder, we continuously strive to improve productivity through collaboration with our valued partners in the supply chain. 

We want to improve the predictability of goods flow for customers and implement innovative solutions while minimizing our negative environmental impact. 

BGL Going Green

Because we connect businesses and individuals all over the world, it is important for us to think green and act sustainable. Our Going Green mission is centered on achieving specific goals and converting them into commitments.

Efficient and effective global consolidation of shipments
As a global forwarder, we are dedicated to efficiently organizing transportation and making efficient use of all available transportation capacity.

Improving our paperless operational processes
Despite the transportation industry is a traditional one that places a high value on paper documents, it is evolving, and digital solutions are becoming more widely available.

Separating waste and only working with green power suppliers
Separating waste and contracting with green power suppliers is important for two reasons: it is better for the environment and it is handled properly.

Providing biodegradable, shrink-wrapped packages to our customers
When pelletizing or repackaging shipments, we make use of reusing packaging materials and sustainable packaging materials.

Investing in safe handling and storage of hazardous materials
Hazardous materials can endanger the environment and people if they are not handled properly. We invest time and resources in improving the knowledge of those who work on dangerous goods (DG) shipments.

Investing in electric mobility
We are proud of our valuable partners, with whom we can collaborate to implement sustainable logistics solutions that will allow us to establish electric vehicle transportation.

More efficiently and effectively
Alternative modes of transportation and multimodal logistics solutions are always on our watchlist.

Committed to green logistics
Transitioning from fossil fuels to biofuels is a top priority for commercial aviation’s future. When compared to fossil fuels, biofuel can reduce carbon emissions by up to 80%.

Consider BGL Going Green and act sustainable
The goal is to look back at the steps we’ve taken to improve our environmental performance and see how well they worked. We’ll keep track of CO2 emissions while transporting goods on behalf of our customers.

Carbon offsetting

We launched a Carbon Offset Program to help customers calculate and offset their carbon emissions. In order to achieve CO2 neutrality by 2025 and subsequent years, we set high standards and choose projects based on environmental benefits. Our goal is to offset all direct carbon emissions.

Measuring our performance

We closely monitor, measure, analyze, and improve our compliance with service level requirements, quality procedures, and environmental management systems. 

We assist in providing carbon footprint reports based on the shipped shipments. A detailed report will be generated for each mode of transport, including stopovers, pre-carriage and on-carriage.

This document serves as a guide for calculating CO2 emissions from transportation (air, sea and road freight).

Quality management is at the heart of all the services we provide to our customers. While carrying out business activities, we strive to minimize negative impacts on the environment. We are certified to ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 and are constantly working to improve and expand our procedures.

The ISO 14001:2015 Standard is aimed at controlling and improving the environmental performance of an organization and throughout the entire supply chain. The ISO 9001:2015 Standard is aimed at improving customer experience and satisfaction.
