Who can help you identify Modern Slavery in your supply chain.
Transport and logistics connect all sectors and are the arteries that keep international and domestic business going. This industry is not only the backbone of international trade of goods but of people too. In 2019 Marshalls plc launched its “Power of Logistics” initiative. They found that drivers, who often arrived on site early in the morning, were most likely to spot potential incidents of modern slavery on site; individuals being take away early in the morning before shifts started. Drivers were trained to spot the signs of modern slavery and to report safely. They are working with Crimestoppers in the UK to support more transport and logistics businesses to get involved and the company has shared all of their campaign material with the hope that other companies will adopt this simple yet effective strategy.
