Think Global, Act Local: Making a Difference with Logistics Solutions

At Ziing, we're all about positively impacting the communities we serve and the planet we call home. But we don’t just talk—we walk the walk. With a “think global, act local” mentality, we consider the impact of our operations on a global scale and take local action to create real change.

We embrace taking matters into our own hands and making a grassroots effort to promote social and environmental change. For us, it’s not just about the bottom line; it’s about doing what’s right for people and the planet.

By aligning ourselves with the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we’ve created some guiding principles to help us achieve peace and prosperity for all.

What it Means to "Think Global, Act Local"

“Think global, act local” isn’t like just any other motto. We see it as a powerful call to action for businesses to take a hard look at their impact on the world and take responsibility for their actions. It’s all about recognizing that every decision we make, no matter how small, can have a ripple effect that reaches far beyond our immediate surroundings.

By embracing this mindset, we can strike a balance between participating in the global marketplace and staying grounded in the local communities we serve. This doesn’t mean ignoring the big picture or pretending that our actions don’t matter on a larger scale, but every positive change has to start somewhere.

How Ziing Thinks Global

"Thinking global" is baked into everything we do at Ziing. Our nationwide fulfillment centers, warehouses, and fleets allow us to serve clients throughout North America. We leverage our advanced infrastructure and expertise to help our service partners grow their businesses and serve clients nationwide.

We take SDG Goal 9 very seriously and strive to promote sustainable industrial growth and innovation in all our operations. This goal is more than just a checkbox to us—it’s an integral part of our operations. We’re committed to building an asset-light business model to reduce our carbon footprint and limit environmental impact.

To support this initiative, we've implemented advanced software that helps us optimize our routes, reducing fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. We're constantly exploring new ways to use technology and innovation to drive positive change for the planet while benefiting our clients.

By seeking new ways to reduce waste, conserve resources, and promote sustainable practices across the logistics industry and staying aligned with SDG Goal 9, we're confident that we can help build a more sustainable future for everyone.

How Ziing Acts Local

On the other hand, we "act local" by employing locals and driving positive community changes where we operate. This initiative helps to align us with SDG Goal 8, focusing on sustainable economic growth and decent work for everyone.

We know employment is crucial in supporting economic growth and fostering strong communities. So, we’ve made it a point to employ responsible business practices to support workers in any way possible, including through competitive pay and benefits.

But we don’t stop there. Our service partner model means we can build long-lasting partnerships with local logistics companies and provide them with the tools they need to take their businesses to the next level. With this, we're not only advancing our business, but we're also strengthening our local communities.

We also remain committed to SDG Goal 11, which urges us to use our resources to make our communities safe, inclusive, sustainable, and resilient. We understand logistics can transform our communities, so we don’t take this lightly.

By empowering our employees, service partners, and community stakeholders, we’re creating meaningful opportunities for everyone to thrive. We know that when our communities are strong, we all benefit.
