Circular logistics - what goes around, comes around

To paraphrase Mike Wilson of Panalpina, it doesn't take an Einstein to realise that gone are the days when a supply chain can operate in linear isolation.

Whether it is in the garment or telecom industry, a sustainable business is one that devises an ethical method of employing and empowering people, maintains a profit, and ensures at least a net zero impact on the planet.

Or Circularity.

For Kuehne+Nagel's 60,000+ employees in over 100 countries, they are fortunate to have an owner who believes in this definition of Sustainability and has the money to pay for it.

Given the unique role the logistics industry plays in maintaining human existence, the world's consumers should be grateful for the increasing number of companies who realize the causal relationship between sustaining education and sustaining profit.

So spread a little enlightenment – apparently what goes around, comes around.
