Clipper Logistics has partnered with supply chain transparency specialist Segura in a bid to ensure its suppliers operate in a sustainable, transparent and ethical way.

Under the deal Segura will deliver its supply chain mapping and visualisation system which provides transparency across the entire supply chain.

Clipper will be able to actively mitigate and map the risk of supply chain interruption, including environmental factors and those potentially caused by unethical practices.

The system will also enable Clipper to manage its internal health and safety systems, alongside its ethical trading and emissions due diligence.

Clipper is currently inviting service providers to the platform and to sign-up in agreement with their global business standards.

Clipper customers are also able to work with Segura to mitigate any supply chain risks that arise through order management of raw materials, components and services.

Karen Leppard, Clipper Logistics head of sustainability and ESG, said: “As supply chains become more global and complex, and data reporting alongside legislative requirements increases, it is vital to have access to real-time, accurate information.

“Segura enables us to provide our stakeholders with increased confidence in supply chain transparency. In the current climate, where legislative compliance and enforcement is imperative, Segura’s ability to capture and enable us to monitor our emissions and understand human rights adherence is of the utmost importance.

“Understanding impacts and opportunities associated with environmental and geopolitical events in the wider supply chain through Segura will be of huge benefit not only to us, but our customers as well”.

Added Peter Needle, Segura founder and president: “Segura’s real-time and continuous due diligence throughout the up and downstream supply chain can support the reduction of lead-times and waste, helping customers to achieve specific ROIs.

“We are delighted to partner with innovative organisations like Clipper. Our aim is to help brands positively impact people and the planet, interrogating supply chains gives us a real opportunity to help businesses achieve key sustainability and governance pillars."

The partnership with Segura is part of Clipper’s broader sustainability goal to be carbon net zero by 2035.
