What are the ambitions of your company with respect to sustainability and logistics? And how do the BICEPS Network objectives contribute to that goal? 

Do you want to drive decarbonization of shipping for more sustainable supply chains? 

Join the BICEPS Network to work together to create impact! 


The members of the BICEPS Network are the shippers of cargo freight. They are convinced that by joining forces with other shippers they can really have an impact and contribute to a more sustainable shipping industry. 

As a member you will be granted full access to the BICEPS Rating System which will provide you with clear insights in the sustainability rating of ocean freight container shipping lines. It will serve as a strong tool for integrating sustainability into your logistic procurement process. At the same time, being part of the network allows you to share and develop best practices with other shippers and take part in a joint dialogue with shipping lines and/or other supply chain partners to boost sustainability initiatives within the shipping industry.  

You will co-design the quarterly meetings and innovation sessions. 

The members of the BICEPS Network support the development and organization of the activities of the Network with a small annual fee. 


Partners share our passion on sustainability and support the goal and ambitions of the BICEPS Network. With their experience, knowledge and/or products and services, they help accelerate the adoptions of innovations to get to more sustainable shipping. 

With partners, the BICEPS Network actively engages to develop pilots or projects to drive the adoption of innovations in the shipping sector. We believe that by organizing coalitions of the willing with proactive actors, we can design and implement impactful showcases of sustainable solutions, products or services. These projects will be temporary coalitions in which an adoption of an innovation is initiated and guided, organized via small group sessions. 

Proactive actors in the shipping sector are invited to collaborate in temporary engagement with the BICEPS Network in projects or pilots to create momentum for the adoption of a sustainable innovation in shipping.  For this temporary coalition a contribution (financially or in-kind) can be asked to support the development and organization of it. 

Shippers who share the ambition of the Network and are committed to a more sustainable shipping industry are welcome to join!”
