Creating Quality Jobs
Senior Jobs Creation : Silver Parcel Delivery
CJ Logistics operates silver courier services to fight poverty problems for the elderly and create quality jobs for seniors. Silver Courier, our representative CSV business, is a business model operated by senior couriers aged 60 or older using eco-friendly electric carts to deliver to nearby areas. Until 2019, we have created approximately 1,400 jobs for the elderly, and we will continue our contributions to solving social problems in this area.
Foundation for Senior Job Growth :
Logistics Center for Elderly Products
CJ Logistics opened the Logistics Center for Elderly Products in January 2018, a first in Korea, which operates and manages the entire logistics process for seniors' products nationwide. The Logistics Center for Elderly Products was established as part of an agreement to create a foundation for the growth of senior jobs with the Ministry of Health and Welfare. We are planning to provide infrastructure, such as logistics facilities, and CJ Logistics has already been providing logistics specialists, warehouse, courier fees discounts, and so on. Moving forwards, we will continue to utilize the logistics infrastructure and network of CJ Logistics to create jobs for seniors, and to support the sales of products produced by the elderly.
Creating jobs for the Disabled :
Courier with Developmental Disabilities
With CSV as a foundation, CJ Logistics is striving to create social value and develop as one with society. As part of these activities, we have been operating a parcel delivery service, involving people with developmental disabilities since 2015. Delivery couriers with developmental disabilities are similar to silver couriers. When a courier vehicle loads parcels to the base located in a job center, the courier separates the boxes and delivers them to the destination. Moving forwards, CJ Logistics will explore sustainable business models for mutual growth and development, creating jobs for the disabled and helping them lead independent lives.
Establishing Safety Nets in Local Communities
Child Traffic Safety Campaign
To protect children from traffic accidents, we regularly carry out the Child Traffic Safety Campaign in cooperation with nearby elementary schools in the community. We are working to raise safety awareness and reduce youth traffic accidents in local communities through campaigns that keeps school zone roads in order and encourage traffic law compliance. The company has distributed light reflection rings for bags and transparent safety umbrellas designed to keep children safe in rainy days. In the future, we plan to actively cooperate with local communities to support various educational programs related to youth safety.
Support for Public Order and Crime Prevention
CJ Logistics and the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency have signed a memorandum of understanding for “citizen-police cooperation in community public order and security”, which ensures public safety through close collaboration with delivery drivers and infrastructure. Through this agreement, over 18,000 couriers are taking an active role as local safety officers, contributing to crime prevention activities by reporting unusual behavior in their delivery areas as they go about their daily jobs. Using the Group’s sharing philosophy as a foundation, CJ Logistics is taking the lead in establishing safety and security within our society.

In partnership with local welfare agencies, we have improved living conditions by supporting the installation of housing insulation and other such restoration activities.

In cooperation with CJ Logistics employees and local senior welfare centers, we volunteered to help solitary elders with grocery shopping for the New Year’s holiday season. We have been carrying out various volunteer activities for 12 years, such as delivering lunch boxes and sharing kimchi with seniors with limited mobility. We will continue to lend a warm helping hand to our neighbors in need and deliver the value of sharing.

In order to raise customer awareness of this campaign and increase participation, we inserted promotional materials within our delivery invoices. Further, through the expansion of diverse activities in this area, we will continue to strive towards achieving a national consensus on reducing fine dust pollution and greenhouse gas emission.
Scandia Moss Air Purification Frame Production
CJ Logistics is taking the lead to reduce airborne particulates and create a pleasant environment by producing air purification frames with scandia moss. In July 2019, we carried out a volunteer project to make scandia moss air purification frames using discarded timber materials at the Seoul Recycling Plaza located in Seongdong-gu, Seoul. The air purification frames handcrafted by our employees were donated to local children's centers and welfare facilities for senior citizens who live alone, with the aim of improving the environment in these spaces. In order to increase the environmental protection awareness of our employees, CJ Logistics will explore diverse ways of encouraging co-existence between mankind and nature.
Planting to Reduce Microscopic Particulate Matter
CJ Logistics holds “Creating Hope-Sharing Forest with CJ Logistics,” an annual event to reduce airborne particulate matters and carbon emission. A total of 600 employees, including the disabled, and volunteers attended the event and planted home-grown 1,000 poplar seedlings in the Han River Park. This is expected to create jobs for the disabled as well as remove 30,200kg of carbon dioxide and 135.3kg of microscopic particulate matter per year.
