The logistics industry is particularly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change, with disruptions affecting transportation networks, supply chains, and operational efficiency. Understanding these impacts is crucial for maintaining service continuity, managing risks, and adopting sustainable practices. 

What can my Logistics business do?

Logistics relies heavily upon carbon intensive methods to operate effectively, so adaptation techniques may not appear clear. However, RedLines can identify future climate challenges at ports and assess the true impact of carbon taxation on your business.


By addressing these critical areas, logistics professionals can better manage the impacts of climate change and leverage opportunities for sustainable growth and resilience.

Top 3 Climate Risks for Logistics


Carbon tax:

As countries and regions begin to implement carbon taxation on imports and exports, the logistics sector could see increased costs and resistance to international export.


Physical weather impacts:

As weather worsens and sea levels rise, ports and warehouses will likely face new weather challenges that they haven’t seen before. Air routes and sea travel may become more challenging, so finding new ways of travel or more resilient locations will be key.


Increased fuel costs

If the transition to net zero is successful, the amount of petrol-based fuels will become limited, likely increasing costs exponentially for industries that rely on them. Investing early in electric travel and alternate transport can save millions in the future.
