December 1, 2020: The global logistics company GEODIS today announced that it is aiming to fill 25 percent of leadership positions by women before 2024.

“This is dedicated to giving both GEODIS’ male and female employees opportunities to express themselves, make suggestions, initiate or support actions that contribute positively to gender equality and that help increase the number of women in leadership positions. The network is also intended to improve the reputation of the logistics and transport industry, a field traditionally dominated by men, to one with an image of greater equality and attractive to women,” said the release.

GEODIS is holding its annual “GEODIS Women’s Network” (GWN) summit, where women make up 40 percent of the workforce.

Mario Ceccon, executive vice president human resources, GEODIS group, said, “We want to continue the action we have already initiated and given women the means to access key positions. Our goal is to increase the number of women in managerial positions. At 13 percent in 2017, women now hold 18 percent of leadership positions. We are aiming for 25 percent by 2023.”

The GWN is a worldwide network open to all employees, supported by senior management, and energized by an active steering committee made up of women and men from various countries in which the group is active (France, Germany, Denmark, Singapore, the USA, etc.), and representative of various functions such as: human resources, operations and the group management board. The GWN acts to promote inclusion, reduce professional disparities between men and women, improve the balance between work and private life and provide equal career prospects. With a woman as CEO, GEODIS is already signalling loud and clear that women have access to leadership positions,” said, Ceccon.

Over the next 3 years, the GWN will concentrate its actions on the following objectives:

Studying and harmonizing possible wage disparities

Establishing a program aimed at placing more women in leadership positions

Increasing the recruitment of women and women’s representation in the transport and logistics industry as a whole.
