The transport and logistics sector is vulnerable to corrupt business practices, particularly in high-risk countries.
As a global organisation with an asset-light business model that contracts with suppliers to deliver services on our behalf, we rely on building and maintaining a common understanding of how we expect business to be conducted with our people, suppliers and other third parties.
We conduct our business with integrity and comply with all laws applicable to our business in all the regions and countries where SGL operates.
