European TK’Blue Agency

European TK’Blue Agency is the first extra-financial rating agency evaluating the environmental footprint in the logistics chain. It delivers voluntary shippers and freight forwarders with an extra-financial TK'Blue rating on a yearly basis, thus evaluating their positioning and progress in the use of “optimodal” freight transport, that is to say, their technical, economic and environmental performance.

A TK'Blue rating is objective, transparent and sustainable. It is issued to shippers based on criteria developed and validated for each mode. It relies on European criteria validated by academics, scientists and European bodies: negative and positive externalities of each mode of transport
