Integrity is one of Agility’s core values. By doing business with integrity, honoring rules of engagement, following laws, and being transparent, we build trust with our employees, customers, communities, shareholders, suppliers, and public and private partners.
Our Code of Business Ethics & Conduct
Our Code of Conduct sets the tone:
Competition and fair selling practices
Bribes, gifts and conflicts of interest
Financial integrity and controls
Record keeping and reporting
Employee rights and working conditions
Health, safety and environmental protection
Government investigations, controls and sanction
Reporting Concerns & Grievances
We encourage all employees to promptly report any ethics violations to their supervisors, though we understand this might not always be possible. That’s why we offer anonymous and confidential reporting channels in almost every country where we operate. Every report we receive is investigated by our ethics team.
CONFIDENTIAL AND ANONYMOUS REPORTING CHANNELS
Send an email to the personal mailbox of any member of the Ethics team.
Enter a report on our secure website from our employee intranet.
Call the Agility Alert Line, a toll-free hotline operated by a 3rd party which can receive calls in 220 languages and accents.
Agility’s online ethics training program began in 2006, and currently includes 11 courses offered in 6 languages. This program reaches all computer-based Agility employees. To reach our non-office staff, Agility is presently piloting in-person trainings in a classroom setting for our basic comprehensive course on the Code of Ethics.
Needs and requirements vary across Agility’s businesses and even within business units. Our Ethics & Compliance team works with individual business managers to determine which of our courses meet the needs of which employees, and if new courses must be added. In some countries, we extend our courses to 3rd party providers to make sure our partners operate according to the same standard.

More from Responsible Business
Strengthening logistics infrastructure and services in emerging markets is essential for an equitable world. Many of Agility’s core markets suffer with massive shortfalls in infrastructure, particularly for transport and communications, restraining economic growth. The United Nations calculates that infrastructure constraints could affect firm productivity growth by about 40%. For Agility, this is a golden opportunity to grow responsibly.
Small & Medium Enterprises
Achieving global prosperity requires inclusive supply chains, in which all businesses, regardless of size and geography, have access to affordable, high quality logistics services. Identifying and responding to the needs of SMEs in all markets is integral to Agility’s business strategy.
Sustainable Development Goals
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), set by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015, are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. Agility contributes to several SDGs across a number of our sustainability activities.
