Allport Cargo Services is committed to creating a safe, fair and socially responsible working environment.
Although Allport Cargo Services is not a member of the Ethical Trading Initiative, we have adopted the ETI base code in our Ethical Trade Policy. We have also introduced a programme to measure Ethical and Social compliance within our global network.
- Employment is freely chosen
- Freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining are respected
- Working conditions are safe and hygienic
- Child labour shall not be used
- Living wages are paid
- Working hours are not excessive
- No discrimination is practised
- Regular employment is provided
- No harsh or inhumane treatment is allowed
The systems created by Adjuno, our software subsidiary, to support our ethical strategy are now available externally. Web-based solutions that help build a trusted supplier network; with audit profiles, results and corrective actions on a platform that enables collaboration and sharing best-practice.
Protection of the external environment and our internal working environment is part of Allport Cargo Services’ values and principles. It is a main Board responsibility and an important part of the way in which we do business.”
We understand the impact our activities have on the environment and proactively work to mitigate those areas that we can influence, including road transport operations, manufacturing and facilities.
Development of an environmental management system and its subsequent ISO 14001 accreditation demonstrates that our commitment is action oriented.
We continue to implement and investigate ways in which we can have a positive impact on our environment.
