Modern Slavery Act
Arrow XL LTD is committed to preventing acts of modern slavery and human trafficking from occurring within its business and imposes the same high standards on its suppliers. We have systems in place to identify and assess potential risks and to ensure we protect whistleblowers.
Structure of the business
We are a provider of a national two-man delivery and collection service within the logistics sector. The Company has 1200 employees operating nationwide. We currently have four main warehouse and distribution hubs and a number of satellite locations across the UK. Our workforce consists of a combination of employed and agency staff depending on local labour conditions and demands.
As part of our commitment to combating modern slavery we have implemented an Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy. We also make sure our suppliers are aware of our policies and adhere to the same high standards.
As part of our efforts to monitor and reduce the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring within our supply chains, we have adopted the following policies and procedures:
- Adopting a modern slavery policy and incorporating relevant anti-slavery and human trafficking provisions into our supplier code of conduct;
- Implementing a provision into our induction process to make all colleagues aware of our policies and procedures
- Updating standard contracts to ensure that suppliers are legally obligated to comply with Arrow XL’s anti-slavery and human trafficking requirements; and
- Ensuring that whistleblowing policies cover modern slavery reporting
To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our business we will provide awareness training to relevant department managers and senior operational managers. We will also ensure this forms part of our onboarding process.
