A strategic partnership between associations will enable member companies to connect their supply chain operations and decarbonization efforts

February 14, 2023 – New York, NY – Gemini Shippers Association, the transportation industry’s leading cooperative procurement group, announced a partnership with Greenabl today to enable shippers to incorporate their transportation activities — the largest sector of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the U.S. — into broader ESG and sustainability efforts.

The partnership will allow member companies of Gemini Shippers Association to seamlessly integrate their shipment data with the Greenabl platform to accurately measure their carbon output and identify opportunities to mitigate and offset GHG emissions. Greenabl will benefit from the long-standing relationships that Gemini Shippers has fostered with shippers, carriers, ports, and regulators as it pursues its goal to bring all stakeholders involved in supply chain decarbonization to the table.

“The way companies buy and consume transportation services is changing for good,” explained Nicole Uchrin, managing director of Gemini Shippers Association. “A viable path to supply chain decarbonization is critical to the long-term success of any company. This partnership with Greenabl will provide our members with a clear roadmap to measure, mitigate and offset supply chain emissions while ensuring compliance with the ever-changing regulatory environment.”

George Goldman, executive chairman of Greenabl added: “To prevent the permanent warming of our planet, every facet of the transportation industry needs to take an active role in decarbonization, both within their own operations as well as across partner and customer relationships. That’s why I’m excited to partner with the Gemini team – their relationships with their members, carriers, and other stakeholders will help Greenabl scale rapidly and make significant progress on industry’s journey to net zero.”

The association duo wants to help companies break down decades-old paradigms which have previously prevented stakeholders from engaging with each other on projects for the collective good. Working together, Gemini Shippers and Greenabl are making supply chain cooperation and collaboration easier than ever before.

Coronavirus Incites Barrage of Social Engineering Campaigns

Please note the update we have received  on IT security and targeting shippers and transport companies by phishing attacks related to the coronavirus. Please remain diligent and be aware of these campaigns.
Coronavirus Incites Barrage of Social Engineering Campaigns

Over the past several weeks, various threat actors have taken advantage of the global concern and interest in the recent coronavirus, known as 2019-nCoV, to launch new social engineering campaigns. The NJCCIC previously reported on coronavirus-themed phishing emails attempting to deliver the Emotet trojan, and others have now surfaced. Proofpoint reported on a phishing campaign targeting industries that could be impacted by shipping disruptions as a result of the virus, including manufacturing, industrial, finance, transportation, pharmaceutical, and cosmetic companies. These emails attempt to convince the recipient to open a Word document attachment regarding the impacts on shipping. The threat actors attempt to exploit a nearly three-year old Microsoft Office vulnerability (CVE-2017-11882) and, once the attachment is opened and macros are enabled, the AZORult information-stealing trojan is installed. In addition, Sophos reported that the World Health Organization (WHO) is being impersonated to spread malware via a phishing campaign that includes the WHO logo and branding and provides the recipient with a link to safety measures regarding the spread of 2019-nCoV. The link leads to a compromised website that looks identical to the WHO homepage; however, a popup requests the visitor to verify their email and password. The URL for this site is not the legitimate WHO homepage and is a noticeable red flag. The NJCCIC highly encourages users to remain vigilant and exercise extreme caution with emails that reference 2019-nCoV, refraining from clicking links or opening attachments. Phishing attempts can be reported to the NJCCIC via the Cyber Incident Form. The WHO and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention provide up-to-date information regarding the 2019-nCoV outbreak.
