Smart Freight Centre


Companies moving goods around the world by road, air, rail or sea are vital contributors to economic development, connecting raw materials, manufacturers and customers. Yet the rising trend toward globalisation and urban growth means these services come with a significant environmental burden.
 
In 2013, Shell Foundation partnered with Sophie Punte, a social entrepreneur with extensive experience working with the freight companies in Asia, to co-develop a new intermediary solution – Smart Freight Centre (SFC).
 
SFC is a non-profit institution based in the Netherlands that will partner with leading freight shippers, logistics companies, equipment manufacturers, industry associations and governments to encourage the widespread adoption of sustainable solutions.
