As a growing world-class logistics provider, we recognise our role in helping to protect the natural environment, supporting our community and being a responsible employer.
Our vision is to lead the way within our industry as an organisation which not only understands its responsibilities but takes positive actions to benefit the environment and society.
To help achieve our vision, our objectives are to:
- Monitor and increase our environmental sustainability by improving efficiency, reducing waste and embracing renewable energy
- Ensure our HR policies and procedures build the most supportive and rewarding working environment for our colleagues and their families
- Encourage diversity, equality and inclusion with our recruitment and colleague development policies
- Make ethical business decisions which balance commercial needs with the impact on our colleagues, society and the environment
- Make a positive contribution to the local community through active involvement with and the support of key charities
Charity and community support
For 2023, our chosen charities are Macmillan & Treedom.
We’re proud to support two charities Macmillan & Treedom. Treedom is a platform that allows anyone to plant trees from a distance and follow the story of the project online. Treedom also allows the ‘owner’s of the planted trees to receive images of the trees that have just been planted along with its GPS coordinates and updates from the project
We’re also supporting Macmillan, the leading cancer support charity. Macmillan provides services for people living with cancer at every stage of their experience. They provide emotional practical, physical and financial support.
In addition to making an annual donation, we will strive to contribute and support their fundraising activities whenever possible.
We will donate all proceeds from any fundraising or sponsorship activities within our organisation to our charities of choice. We also aim to support other local or national charities which approach us directly or of personal significance to a member of our team.
Freightline’s success depends on the strength of our communities. We encourage our colleagues to get involved by giving them the flexibility to alter their working hours to support volunteering. This way, they can donate their time to causes they’re passionate about while still meeting their commitments.
Environment and sustainability
At Freightline we are dedicated to making a positive impact on the environment and fostering sustainability in the logistics industry. As part of our ongoing commitment, we have implemented a range of eco-friendly initiatives, as well as partnering with Treedom, a leading environmental organisation.
🌳Tree-Planting Partnership with Treedom
Through our collaboration with Treedom, we are actively contributing to reforestation efforts worldwide. As part of our commitment to environmental sustainability, we will plant trees through Treedom’s innovative platform, ensuring a positive impact on the planet with each dedicated tree planted. This initiative helps combat deforestation and supports a greener future for generations to come.
🌿 Reducing Energy Consumption
We are continuously striving to minimise our energy usage. One of the ways we achieve this is by optimising transportation routes to reduce the use of fuel. By planning more efficient routes, we not only save on fuel costs but also contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
🌿Green Living: Moss Wall at Our New Office
We take pride in our new office space, where we’ve incorporated a beautiful moss wall, providing a natural and vibrant touch to our workplace. Not only does this create a healthier environment for our employees, but it also represents our dedication to sustainable design.
♻️ Waste Reduction and Recycling
We are committed to minimising waste generation throughout our operations. By promoting recycling initiatives, we strive to ensure that materials are repurposed and contribute to a circular economy.
📜Paperless Invoices and Reduced Printing:
In an effort to minimise paper usage, we have embraced a paperless invoicing system. Digital invoices not only streamline processes but also significantly reduce our paper consumption, contributing to a greener planet.
🌱 Promoting Sustainable Materials
We are committed to using sustainable materials wherever possible. Our dedication to sustainability extends to all aspects of our operations, including the use of all our marketing material. By opting for sustainable, recycled, and recyclable materials, we aim to minimise waste and support a circular economy.

As a responsible employer, we always act in a supportive way to allow our colleagues the time and flexibility to care for their family, when needed.
We offer flexible and part-time opportunities to support working parents.
