Message from Management



Dear Stakeholders,

I am pleased to present ONE’s sixth annual sustainability report, covering our performance and progress. 2022 has been a year of growth and progress for ONE. As the effects of the pandemic subside and the global economy normalises, we have been presented with unprecedented new challenges within the global environment, including rising geopolitical tensions, as well as a continued emphasis on strengthening resilience of supply chains. I am proud to say ONE has done well to navigate these challenges, remaining lean and agile, adapting quickly to a fast-changing environment. 

Core to our strategy at ONE, is our focus on operational excellence in our processes and remaining at the forefront of innovation through our drive towards digitalisation to transform our business and improve efficiency. Our all-in-one mobile application platform provides our customers with convenient access to critical information at their fingertips, such as their shipment status and updates. Continued enhancements to the platform in 2022 have also improved user experience. This has not only elevated our services and the customer experience immensely, but also aided in our efforts towards decarbonisation. Digitalisation also represents an opportunity for us to improve the efficiency of our staff and their wellbeing. We are able to ensure we continue to develop their skills as they progress in terms of their professional development.

Being in an industry that is a major source of global emissions, taking climate action continues to remain front and centre of the shipping sustainability agenda. As we strive to become a global leader in sustainable shipping, we established a new Corporate Strategy & Sustainability department in July 2022, which sits within the Corporate & Innovation Division. The Corporate Strategy & Sustainability department has two units, the strategy and green unit, which together help various teams or departments in ONE to integrate green initiatives into our mid-to long-term business strategy and implement key programmes. Through this, we are able to accelerate our efforts and the approach outlined in our decarbonisation roadmap, prioritising initiatives under our five key focus areas, spanning carbon management, operational efficiency, green investment, alternative fuels and ecosystem building. Some key areas we have our eyes on include reducing our GHG emissions, investing in greener initiatives, protecting marine life and ensuring that we comply with relevant industry regulations and collaborating with our stakeholders. We have participated in the Rotterdam-Singapore green corridor and our technical department is currently working closely with the shipyard and class society on the design and blueprints of our first zero emission. With these designs and blueprints, we will be able to obtain the “AiP (Approval in Principle)”. These zero emission vessels can be retrofitted for the use of ammonia and methanol as fuel, carbon capture and storage. We expect to receive these vessels in 2025. These various initiatives will no doubt serve as a catalyst to propel us on our journey towards decarbonisation and our ambition to achieve net zero by 2050.

Beyond our own operations, we firmly believe that the decarbonisation of the shipping needs industry-wide collaboration from all industry players and stakeholders. To facilitate our customer’s decarbonisation efforts, we developed an in-house carbon calculator that adopts industry recognised standards and aims to help customers understand their carbon footprint. To that end, we also provide avenues for customers to collaborate and decarbonise through our key initiatives in green procurement. Some of the initiatives include setting up a carbon credit system and working out the assurance by a third-party verifier that we are aiming to launch at the end of 2023. These efforts and our detailed and comprehensive approach towards decarbonisation through these initiatives and our interim targets will ensure we remain on track in achieving our 2050 goals. 

We also aim to contribute to international efforts and partner closely with other carriers and regulators to develop ground-breaking technology that can be shared throughout the industry. In 2022, in line with the recommendations of the International Advisory Panel on Maritime decarbonisation, we jointly founded the Global Centre for Maritime Decarbonisation with six other industry players and established a fund dedicated to researching decarbonisation technology in the maritime sector. An area of key interest is biofuel, which although having demonstrated potential as a low carbon fuel, still presents challenges related to availability and quality. We are working with partners to establish an assurance framework to shape standards for the use of biofuels for shipping. Our biofuel pilot project is in its third trial, making good progress towards establishing a reliable biofuel supply chain. Besides biofuels, we are also exploring emerging alternative solutions such as ammonia, methanol and methane.

The progress we have made in sustainability and the successful navigation of the recent pandemic are, without a doubt, due to the dedication, ingenuity and efforts of all our employees. It is evident that our people are our greatest assets, and we seek to provide value not only to our customers, but to all the lives and livelihood we touch across our value chain. The safety and wellbeing of all our employees remains a foundational essential priority for ONE. We have stepped up our efforts to not only focus on safety, but develop initiatives that care for our employee’s overall wellbeing. This includes allowing flexible working arrangements and putting in place measures to facilitate close working relationships between the management and our employees. These close relationships in turn create open channels for employees to provide transparent and honest feedback. 

For our employees to reach their full potential, we are proud to announce the launch of the ONE Academy, our group-wide talent management and people development initiative. The ONE Academy is our marquee development program which sets the strategic direction and consolidates our training and development initiatives under four key pillars. These four pillars will help to engage and empower our employees and cultivate a sense of belonging. These programmes will ensure our people are well taken care of and that ONE’s talent pipeline remains future-ready and resilient.

Clear, consistent and transparent ethical business conduct is a fundamental and indispensable bedrock at ONE. We conduct our affairs with the highest standards of corporate governance set out in our business credo in full compliance with all regulations, with zero tolerance towards bribery, corruption or any form of anti-trust and competitive activity. In a move to further deter potential adverse practices, we established the Anti-Bribery Risk Assessment Guidelines to assess and mitigate the risk of bribes being paid through third parties, including suppliers and business partners. These guidelines also include a comprehensive process to screen third parties. As we move ahead towards digitalisation, we have increased our attention to cybersecurity, safeguarding the interests of all stakeholders. 

Looking ahead, I am excited about our prospects. The challenges of geopolitical tension and rising inflation remain. However, I am confident that the foundations we have built and our unwavering commitment towards sustainability have positioned us to be agile, resilient and create value for our stakeholders over the long-term. We will continue to drive innovation and collaborate closely with all our core business partners, to achieve our vision of a sustainable shipping industry. 

This report is a valuable part of our accountability and transparency to our stakeholders. Through it we reflect on our performance and progress, as we strive to drive continuous improvement across our business. I would like to thank all employees, customers and partners for your continued support and trust in ONE. Together, we continue to chart a path toward a more sustainable future.

(1) Oil Spills Prevention

At ONE we are also prepared for the unexpected. Unplanned events and loss of containment can result in some of the most significant environmental impacts in our industry. To address this risk, our marine safety & quality team developed a Crisis Management Manual that sets out the appropriate response procedures in the event of cargo trouble or maritime accidents such as spills, ship collisions, ship damage, engine trouble, cargo damage and typhoons. In addition, the manual provides clear roles and responsibilities including CEO and reporting procedures when an accident occurs. Our regional managers went through a crisis management training to ensure the emergency preparedness of our organization. Large-scale maritime accident response training will be conducted at least once a year to ensure the effectiveness of the Crisis Management Manual and build capabilities amongst employees, ensuring our staff are equipped to respond to maritime accidents promptly and effectively.

Oil Spill 1

(2) Ballast Water Management

Taking on and discharging ballast water during voyage can provide a pathway for species transfer between different ecosystems. This could result in the release of harmful invasive and non-native algae, plants or animals into new environments. The IMO adopted the Ballast Water Management (BWM) Convention in 2004, with its provisions entering into force from September 2017. The Convention requires ships in international traffic to implement a Ballast Water and Sediments Management Plan, to carry a Ballast Water Record Book, and to apply ballast water management procedures to meet the standards set. Our operating fleet at this stage comprises of more than 200 ships. These ships are chartered from our parent companies and ship owners who are compliant with environmental regulations and committed to reducing their environmental footprint. Our fleet management team will work with ship owners to select the appropriate ballast water treatment system and establish operational guidelines to protect biodiversity during transportation.

(3) Marine Species Protection

Plant-A-Coral, Seed- A-Reef

As part of ONE's effort to conserve the marine biodiversity, we have worked with The Garden City Fund's Plant-A-Coral, Seed-A-Reef programme to support the habitat enhance efforts at Singapore Sister's islands Marine Park through ONE's donation. The main objective is to strengthen our marine biodiversity by providing areas for marine organisms to grow and reef fish to seek refuge. With this donation, ONE want to raise awareness of the exisitng issue on the environment and hope like minded individuals can be more environemntally aware on how we can play a part in preserving our biodiviesity and environment.

Key Initiatives


We envision ONE to be a global leader in the realisation of environmentally sustainable shipping and green strategy is a top of our management agenda. We have also placed great emphasis in our commitment to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, as well as global environmental conservation.

Besides our pledge to become carbon neutral, ONE recognises the need to make continuous investment in green assets and technologies while taking appropriate actions to meet our target.

We must all work differently and put sustainability at the heart of our business in order to ensure the long term sustainability of ONE and as such, we have identified seven key initiatives:

investment 1

Green investments are crucial for incremental efficiency increase and innovative technologies to achieve net-zero emissions. You may also be aware of our fleet modifications to enhance fuel performance, such as the attachment of the energy-saving propeller boss cap and modification of the bulbous bow. These are forms of technologies that enhance our efficiency incrementally, alongside frequent maintenance of our existing vessels is necessary to keep them in best conditions.

Beyond these technologies, we are also looking into various forms of green investments such as talents, who have the operational knowledge and expertise, particularly for zero-emission vessels, as well as hardwares, where we will engage in the replacement of the older fleet with new and more fuel-efficient vessels. By 2030, ONE will deploy its first alternative fuel ships which are able to achieve both net zero GHG emissions while increasing vessel capacity simultaneously.

Asset 2 1

Presently, there is no clear answer to which alternative fuel can help achieve net-zero for the maritime industry and each alternative fuel is in different stages of development and has different characteristics. ONE has conducted several biofuel trials in the past few years and while we recognize the supply constraints for scaling up biofuel usage, biofuels are still useful as a support fuel in specific cases such as pilot fuel for green ammonia and green methanol.

While we do not eliminate any alternative fuels currently, ONE plans to reduce reliance and replace existing conventional fuel vessels by 2050. ONE will thus prioritise R&D and investments for green ammonia, green methanol and green methane related vessels and technologies.

Asset 3 1

We have highlighted three main actions for carbon management.

Firstly, we have introduced an internal carbon pricing system on a trial basis since 2021 and we intend to use it continuously as one of the indicators to guide investment decisions.

Secondly, we will develop low-emissions service offerings for our customers using low-carbon fuels. At present, we are also preparing a carbon calculator to measure the emissions from our services to enable our customers to identify their carbon footprint accurately.

Lastly, we are studying green-related technologies such as carbon capture and storage. This will be conducted in tandem with regulatory authorities in each country.

settings 1

On top of existing methods, such as improving vessel size, vessel speed reduction and the use of inhouse fleet monitoring systems, ONE recognise the importance of improving fuel efficiency through other programs. We have made several efforts to pursue operational efficiency in order to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions and this includes optimising product performance, such as the continuous review of vessel proforma, improving asset portfolio through the modification for safe bunker and loadability such as the use of antifouling paint or Alternative Maritime Power (AMP) retrofit.

Besides new technology and efficiency programs, we will also continue to evaluate and invest in digitalisation tools and initiatives which allows improvement of our operational efficiency and to achieve fuel consumption savings. Existing milestones such as the Digitalisation Strategy Roadmap have commenced since 2020 and we are looking into investing in future technologies to continually improve our operational efficiency and reduce carbon emissions.

Asset 1 1
Clean Ship

We believe that ship recycling is critical to ensure sustainable vessel operations from start to end of life. As we plan to own vessels in the near future, we will audit dismantling sites used by third party organisations to minimise the damage and emissions associated with ship breaking and ship recycling. Additionally, this will ensure the recovery of scrap metal, and the reduction of both greenhouse gas emissions and pollution to the environment.

sustainable (1) 1
Active Environmental

Besides ship recycling, ONE’s new green strategy also places emphasis on environmental conservation. As frequent users of the ocean, we also play the role of a custodian to the ocean. ONE aims to prevent ecological damage and proactively lead initiatives to help regenerate the ecosystem. In order to meet this objective, we plan to participate in ecological conservation programs, such as the conservation of marine life, and ensure zero significant spills for all vessels.

Furthermore, we aim to establish our Environment Fund in 2022 to finance environmental related activities which will support long-term efforts towards material environmental themes and serve as a platform to educate employees and stakeholders on our environment.

Operational Efficiency

Operational efficiency


Ocean Network express aims to deliver goods safely, timely while priotitising environmental protection and energy conservation. In order to achieve this mission, ONE place great emphasis in reducing our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and we have been making progress since our establishment in 2018.

To work towards our targets, we have implemented initiatives aimed at improving our operational and fleet fuel efficiency to reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions.

In 2020, we made some new progress to improve our fleet fuel efficiency. These include modification of bulbous bow to reduce wave resistance, replacement with high efficiency propellers and attachment of special propeller boss cap. These measures are expected to reduce up to 10% of emission from fuel use per vessel. We will continue to implement these modifications progressively across our fleet.

For our ocean-going transportation, carbon dioxide emissions are calculated according to the methodology developed by the Clean Cargo. However, full utilization capacity is used for this calculation.

Eco Calculator for CO2 Emission






A ONE lança nosso Sistema de Relatório de Acidentes Marítimos (MARS), com o objetivo de processar os casos de acidentes de forma adequada e rápida, analisando as tendências de acidentes e formulando medidas eficazes de prevenção.

Estamos tomando várias medidas destinadas a eliminar acidentes, usando esse sistema para analisar detalhes e tendências de acidentes e explorar profundamente a causa raiz dos acidentes. Além disso, ao criar um banco de dados com informações sobre acidentes, podemos compartilhar informações com nossa rede mundial em tempo hábil e estabelecer medidas de segurança ideais.


A ONE criou uma rede de resposta a emergências com base em cinco regiões do exterior, alocando o Super Intendente Marítimo (MSI) a operadores regionais de embarcações, que visa estar pronto para acidentes e problemas marítimos em todo o mundo.





A segurança é e continuará sendo nossa maior prioridade. Nossa missão é prestar serviços de qualidade e confiáveis, através de segurança constante na operação de nossos navios e no transporte de carga.


A ONE instala o ONE-VQS, um rigoroso sistema de gerenciamento de navio seguro auto-imposto, a fim de cumprir melhor nossas responsabilidades para garantir a segurança e proteger o meio ambiente. O padrão abrange aproximadamente 280 itens, incluindo tratados internacionais, padrões internacionais de qualidade, medidas para evitar a recorrência de acidentes e requisitos dos clientes. Os padrões foram aplicados a todas as aproximadamente 250 embarcações em operação.





Usamos o tempo em que os navios estão parados devido a acidentes ou problemas como um meio de avaliar o grau em que alcançamos uma operação segura do navio. Nossas operações marítimas e terrestres trabalham juntas para nos aproximar da meta de tempo de paralisação 'zero'.

Antes do embarque, os operadores do navio e o departamento de Segurança e Qualidade Marítima realizam uma reunião informativa antes do embarque para os capitães. Esta é uma oportunidade para explicar as políticas básicas da Empresa sobre segurança, bem como fornecer as informações e instruções específicas mais recentes por meio de manuais de gestão de segurança e procedimentos escritos relacionados, adotados por cada empresa de gestão.  



No infeliz evento de um acidente, respostas oportunas e precisas são cruciais. Para garantir essas respostas, realizamos regularmente simulações, assumindo "os piores cenários envolvendo navios sob nossa operação". Essa simulação envolve treinamento prático e abrange tudo, desde a montagem de uma equipe de resposta a emergências até o estabelecimento de uma sede de resposta a acidentes e a criação de sistemas de compartilhamento de informações, além do estabelecimento de sistemas para comunicação com partes externas.


O número de incidentes de pirataria na costa da Somália e no Golfo de Áden permaneceu baixo nos últimos anos devido a contramedidas realizadas por várias tropas nacionais, incluindo a Força de Autodefesa Marítima do Japão. No entanto, a situação pode ser facilmente revertida se a comunidade internacional enfraquecer seus esforços. Além disso, as perdas relacionadas à pirataria ainda ocorrem com frequência no Golfo da Guiné (África Ocidental) e no Sudeste Asiático. Consequentemente, as condições para a navegação de navios mercantes permanecem imprevisíveis.

Ao largo da costa da Somália e no Golfo de Áden, nos esforçamos o máximo possível para receber proteção da Força de Autodefesa Marítima do Japão e das marinhas de vários países. Para nossa autodefesa, fazemos todo o possível para garantir a segurança da tripulação como prioridade máxima. Isso inclui evitar áreas problemáticas, manter a alta velocidade, usar bocais de água de alta pressão, instalar arame farpado para evitar embarques não autorizados e usar coletes e capacetes à prova de balas.


O departamento de Segurança e Qualidade Marítima publica informações de segurança atualizadas para compartilhar casos de acidentes e boas práticas de nossos navios em operação. As lições aprendidas com os acidentes e as medidas ambientais são notificadas aos armadores, empresas de gerenciamento de navios e todas as embarcações operacionais através do boletim mensal, e as informações são compartilhadas entre o pessoal onshore e offshore.


As Operações Globais de Navios realizam reuniões diárias de operações para verificar os riscos de navegação em tempo hábil e discutir medidas contra problemas em andamento, se houver. A sede global da ONE possui uma sala de operação de embarcações que monitora as embarcações em operação, rastreando a posição da embarcação junto com as últimas condições climáticas.



A ONE realiza periodicamente campanhas de aprimoramento de segurança para promover uma cultura corporativa que incorpora a segurança. Os funcionários envolvidos em operações onshore e offshore trocam opiniões e aprofundam sua compreensão mútua sobre um tema principal definido com base nas prioridades atuais. Durante o período da campanha, os oficiais executivos e a gerência envolvidos na campanha realizarão visitas a navios para enfatizar a importância da segurança da navegação com o capitão e tripulações e discutir quais medidas podem ser tomadas a bordo para alcançar esse objetivo. O ONE também cria oportunidades para uma discussão mais aprofundada com representantes de armadores e empresas de gestão de navios para levar suas atividades de segurança à linha de frente das operações da embarcação.

By Chief Executive Officer


Safety and Quality are and will remain our utmost priority. 

It is our mission to provide quality and reliable service by incorporating highest standards of safety in the operation of our vessels and the transportation of cargo.

We understand that only with good safety and quality standard of our vessels, can we instil trust in our customers and achieve customer satisfaction.

In April 2018, we established ONE VESSEL QUALITY STANDARD (ONE-VQS) SYSTEM to fulfil this objective.

Vessels chartered by ONE undergo periodic Vessel Quality Standard (VQS) inspections to enable us in monitoring the condition of fleet vessels with respect to both hardware and software. We then try to improve the conditions on board together with owners, so as to meet our requirements. These inspections are carried out by third-party survey companies, in close collaboration with our Marine Safety & Quality department.

We established our Quality Management System (ISO 9001:2015 certified) in 2020. All related personnel have been trained to familiarise with related processes to ensure quality is not compromised. The quality policy is readily made available to all interested parties and such information can be passed down easily so that requirements of the standard are complied with.


ISO 9001 is an international Quality Management System (QMS) standard set by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). Requirements for the QMS are stipulated in ISO 9001.

In 2020, the top management decided to adopt a QMS, built upon the basis of our internal vessel quality system, ONE-VQS. The QMS serves to implement our work processes smoothly and systematically, furthermore, strengthen both safety and quality aspects of our fleet.

We have received our ISO 9001:2015 certificate in March 2021 from ClassNK.

À medida que as leis e os regulamentos fiscais estão evoluindo e se tornando mais complexos, o risco de violações involuntárias de conformidade aumenta significativamente.

A ONE está comprometida em garantir a conformidade com os requisitos locais e trabalhar em prol da transparência e divulgação tributária.

A ONE não tolera o comportamento de transferência de lucros com a finalidade de evitar impostos, e se compromete a ser um contribuinte responsável em todos os países relevantes. Como ponto de partida, nosso departamento fiscal conduzirá um estudo de pesquisa com o objetivo de analisar as leis fiscais locais e os requisitos de relatórios em vários países onde a ONE pode operar. Este estudo nos ajudará a preparar nossos relatórios de país para país às autoridades fiscais locais, de acordo com o projeto de Erosão de Base e Mudança de Lucro da OCDE. As políticas tributárias globais e uma estrutura de controle interno serão desenvolvidas até abril de 2018, seguindo nosso compromisso de cumprir as leis e regulamentos fiscais de cada jurisdição. A ONE formalizará, portanto, a abordagem adotada para executar sua estratégia de planejamento fiscal sem comprometer a integridade de sua governança corporativa e moralidade fiscal. As questões fiscais serão monitoradas por nosso departamento fiscal em nossa sede global, que também gerencia os departamentos fiscais nacionais e regionais


A confiabilidade é um dos principais valores da ONE e estamos comprometidos em conduzir nossos negócios de maneira confiável. Todos os diretores, gerentes e funcionários aderem ao Código de Conduta e Negócios da ONE, que inclui nosso compromisso de trabalhar de acordo com a lei e as normas sociais como uma obediência absoluta.  

O Comitê de Conformidade, realizado duas vezes por ano, estabelece a estrutura de conformidade da ONE e é o fator determinante para solidificar a cultura de conformidade no Grupo ONE, presidido pelo Diretor de Conformidade e com a presença de Diretores, alta administração e chefes de departamento. Ele determina as ações necessárias para estabelecer, monitorar e aprimorar ainda mais as iniciativas de conformidade da ONE. O Comitê é projetado e executado para que cada departamento responsável assuma a responsabilidade de sua conformidade, incluindo o monitoramento e o trabalho como uma equipe para enfrentar os desafios como organização.  

Um sistema global de linha direta foi criado para a detecção antecipada de problemas simultâneos, para receber relatórios de denúncia e fornecer consulta imediata sobre vários assuntos relacionados à conformidade.


Conforme elaborado na Política Básica Antissuborno da ONE, todos os diretores e funcionários - diretamente ou através de terceiros - são proibidos de se envolver em qualquer forma de prática corrupta, incluindo suborno e extorsão.  


Modern Slavery Statement


Modern Slavery Statement

October 2022


This statement is made pursuant to Section 54(1), of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (UK) and constitutes Ocean Network Express Pte. Ltd. and Ocean Network Express (Europe) Ltd.’s (together as “ONE”) slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 31 March 2022.

This is our third Modern Slavery Statement. Building upon our past statements, ONE further underscores our continued commitment to prevent modern slavery and human trafficking in global business and supply chains, through the introduction of material goals and key performance indicators (“KPIs”) to measure the effectiveness of our actions and progress.

Our Structure

ONE is a global container shipping business operating worldwide with headquarters in Singapore.

Our policies on countering Modern Day Slavery and human trafficking

‘Modern Day Slavery’ is an umbrella term, which in the context of global supply chains often relates to cases where individuals are subject to human trafficking, forced labour, or debt servitude; or where coercion, threats or deception are used to intimidate, penalize, or deceive workers, thereby creating situations of involuntary work and exploitation.

ONE Credo and Code of Conduct

We are committed to ensuring that there is no Modern Day Slavery, human trafficking, forced labour or debt servitude in our supply chains nor in any part of our business. Our Credo and Code of Conduct reflects our commitment to act ethically, and with integrity in all business relationships. Ensuring the implementation and enforcement of effective systems and controls against Modern Day Slavery within our supply chains.

United Nations Global Compact

To be part of a global movement towards conducting business in a responsible and sustainable manner, ONE is a member of Global Compact Network Singapore (GCNS), the local chapter of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) network. ONE supports the ten UNGC Principles and has pledged to adopt and promote sustainable and responsible business practices. This means operating in ways that, at a minimum, meet fundamental responsibilities in the areas of human rights, labour, environment, and anti-corruption.

ONE is committed to respecting all ten principles, including Principle 4: the elimination of all forms of forced and compulsory labour. ONE’s Code of Conduct also reflects this respect in Chapter 4: “Respect for Human Rights and Diversity of Cultures”, Clause 4-4: “Prohibiting Forced Labour or Child Labour”, which states ‘ONE does not engage in inhumane acts such as forced labour or child labour and ONE does not conduct trade with business enterprises engaged in such acts.’

Due diligence processes in our supply chain

As part of our initiatives to identify and mitigate risk, we have taken steps (detailed below) to integrate sustainability and compliance into our purchasing processes, by measuring and ensuring compliance with social and environmental standards.

ONE Supply Chain Management Guideline

ONE recognises that to achieve our sustainability and compliance ambitions, we must bring our suppliers and business partners on board. Critical to our operations are terminal operators, inland and coastal transportation companies, ships and container owners, bunker suppliers, and IT vendors, without whom our core business activities cannot take place.

To ensure our high standards of sustainability and business conduct are upheld along our supply chain, ONE launched our Supply Chain Management Guideline (“the Guideline”). The Guideline calls on all ONE's suppliers and business partners to respect human rights, business norms and compliance. Accordingly, our Guideline encourages –

  • Elimination of forced, bonded or child labour
  • Compliance with labour-related laws and regulations of each country
  • Equal terms of employment and treatment
  • Improvement of working environment concerning safety and health
  • Fair wages treatment

Procurement staff are required to share the Guideline with potential vendors: Supply Chain Management Guideline

Monitoring and review

ONE has taken steps to ensure that there is no Modern Day Slavery or human trafficking in any part of our business.

The Corporate & Innovation Division in GHQ has responsibility for implementing this statement and providing adequate resources to ensure that Modern Day Slavery is not taking place within ONE's business or its supply chains. Additionally, ONE undertakes an annual EcoVadis1 sustainability assessment comprising 21 sustainability criteria definitions, with 4 measures being of direct pertinence to Modern Slavery issues.

As ONE continues to expand our scope of operations, we recognize that our risk landscape continues to evolve. In view of this, ONE undertakes an annual review of our measures to combat Modern Slavery, to ensure adequate coverage and governance.

Goals FY 2021/22 Status FY 2022/23 Status
Awareness of Modern Slavery Act in the Organization 92% completion rate for e-learning module 100% completion rate for e-learning Training Refresh through gamification
Enhanced Employee Engagement Training via e-learning platform Further initiatives like the EUA Modern Slavery Act SmartCard - an internal tool which details concisely key aspects of compliance matters and their importance; and GHQ Compliance Poster roll-out
Extended Scope for Supplier Contracts MSA clauses are currently incorporated into Vendor Contracts originating from the UK Incorporation of MSA clauses in globally managed Vendor Contracts across the Organization
Downstream Audit and Monitoring Not Applicable Introduction of Supplier Declaration
Supply Chain Management Guideline Kickstarted efforts to collaboratively work with Procurement team in the exploration of digital solutions. Full Implementation of digital tools (SAP Ariba) to achieve 100% Supplier Acknowledgement of Compliance from Q4 2022


We provide training to ensure that managers in ONE have a thorough knowledge of the ONE Credo, Code of Conduct, and the Guideline and can act accordingly, sharing knowledge of these documents and ensuring a culture of compliance within their own organisation.

The year 2020-21 saw the development and rollout of bespoke Modern Day Slavery training via our e-learning platform. This training is provided to all staff across the organisation, with materials and quizzes to re-enforce organisational awareness of the company’s commitment to recognise the risks of Modern Day Slavery in its business, and all the pertinent steps ONE is taking to prevent modern slavery and human trafficking in its business and supply chains.

Whistleblowing Program

Employees are encouraged, via our Whistleblowing program, which seeks to encourage effective communication, and to identify any potential violations of applicable laws, internal rules and procedures, the ONE Credo, Code of Conduct and the Guideline. All reports are processed, investigated as applicable, and when justified, appropriate measures are taken.


COVID-19 has shed a spotlight on the exacerbated vulnerability of crew at sea. Accordingly, as a founding signatory to the Neptune Declaration2 for Seafarer Wellbeing and Crew Change, and platinum sponsor of the Mission to Seafarers “Sustaining Crew Welfare” campaign, ONE will continue to be committed to addressing this increased vulnerability; ensuring the sustained wellbeing of our maritime frontliners and the enhancement of our culture of care, through the pandemic and beyond.


From October 2022, ONE will make this statement available via the UK Government's Modern Slavery Statement Registry. The Registry has been designed to make it easier for consumers and investors to search for the Modern Slavery Statements of businesses.

This statement was approved by the Board of Directors on 06 October 2022.

Supply Chain Management

Operational Excellence

Operational Excellence


Operational excellence is a mindset and way of working that we embrace at ONE.

When we first started operations in 2018 as one of the newest players in the industry, we knew we had to bring our best to the table to successfully compete in the market. This strategy has enabled us to strive for sustainable improvements within our operations and high levels of service quality.


Innovation and digitalization are critical enablers of operational excellence at ONE. In 2019, we established our Digital Strategy Committee and Digitalization Roadmap, to build our digital capabilities and enhance existing business models and services, with a focus on delivering better customer experience and operational efficiency.


We commenced the first stage of our Digitalization Roadmap in December 2020, digitalizing our channels, operations and assets to provide an end-to-end customer experience within a single digital environment from quotation to e-invoice.

We continue to enhance our Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system to provide full visibility of customer information and interactions across global and regional offices for key accounts, in order to improve customer communication and experience. We also started deploying Robotic Process Automation (RPA) for our booking documentation process to improve quality, accuracy and turnaround time. We aim to have 100% of customer bookings done via our digital platform by 2025.

Digitalization Roadmap


High levels of customer satisfaction and service quality cannot be met if we do not execute on-time delivery of our customers’ goods. That, in turn, requires us to achieve the best operational efficiency at sea and on land.

One of the initiatives implemented is the ONE Agile Supply Chain Integrated System (OASIS) which is a centralized inventory management system that uses data analytics to forecast container demand and supply from shippers (export) and consignees (import) so we can optimise our container positioning strategy. It has been implemented in 99% of locations in ONE’s depot network, with realized savings on equipment cost and empty container reposition costs.

Another initiative is our Terminal Partnership Program (TPP), launched in 2018 to partner terminal operators to improve productivity and service reliability through close cooperation on scheduling, stowage planning and equipment deployment. It is now expanded to more than 10 terminals including a number of major terminal operators all over the world.

LIVE Chat Case Study


The safe transportation of cargo is fundamental to delivering the highest standards of customer service and enabling a smooth flow of operations. It also protects ship and land crew from unnecessary harm. We ensure safe cargo transportation and operations onboard by enforcing strict safety standards and inculcating safety awareness in our employees and contractors.

ONE’s stringent Vessel Quality Standard (VQS) drives our approach to vessel safety. The VQS ensures high safety standards are maintained on ships, based on requirements for ship safety and quality management systems that are in line with industry standards.


To ensure the safe operation of ships, we developed and implemented an Operational Standard to provide guidance to ship crews on how to manage and respond to issues such as cargo damage, heavy weather, accidents and fires, as well as on safe navigation of areas at high-risk of piracy and conflict zones. Issues such as robbery and theft, unauthorized stowaways, and the smuggling of firearms, drugs, and other illegal contraband are also addressed in the Operational Standard.
