Reporting 2020

Our economic responsibility

Sustained economic success is not only crucial to our continued existence as a company; it also determines the extent to which we can act in an environmentally and socially sustainable manner. Because economic independence creates valuable leeway, for example when it comes to investing in climate protection measures or converting temporary into permanent employment contracts. In order to sustain or even expand this long-term success and with it our market position, we want to play a key role in shaping the sustainable logistics of tomorrow. In doing so, we are increasingly relying on digitalization and new technologies such as artificial intelligence to make our services and processes efficient and, wherever possible, climate-friendly. It is equally important that we ensure the satisfaction of our customers over the long term – which is why we continuously review the quality of our services and aim to further improve every day.

At the same time, we are aware of the responsibility that we bear as a major employer at many locations. We also need economic stability to be able to offer our employees good prospects and secure, well-paid jobs. Creating values for them and our other stakeholder groups is an important part of what drives us.

In all of this, our compliance system provides the framework within which we operate. This encompasses strict compliance with laws and regulations as well as our own ethical principles. We are also increasingly extending this to cover the entire supply chain.
