Voluntary Action Declaration for the White Logistics Movement
SUNDRUG endorses the intentions of the White Logistics movement, which aims to improve working conditions to eliminate the shortage of truck drivers and achieve more efficient logistics operations. On November 10, 2022, we submitted our 16-point voluntary action declaration for the realization of sustainable logistics.
－White Logistics Movement－
The White Logistics movement is a joint initiative of the public and private sectors to tackle the shortage of truck drivers caused by the chronic issue of long working hours and other issues.
(1) Improve productivity of truck transportation and logistics efficiency
(2) Create a better working environment for all drivers, including women and drivers aged in their sixties.
All our products generate value only when they have been conveyed by logistics networks and delivered into our customers’ hands.
We will continue to engage seriously in our efforts to resolve social issues, including through the initiative of “White Logistics.”
