Looking after the environment
We are always looking for ways to do our jobs greener and more efficiently. Since 2002 we have been using alternative fuels to cut down our impact on the environment. These are some of the things we do to make our operation greener:
We have had LPG (Liquid Petroleum Gas) vehicles in our fleet for over 7 years and we have run our fleet on bio-diesel since 2006.
We are lucky enough to have our own workshops so that we can maintain our vehicles at a reduced cost and keep them economically viable for longer. As long as reliability and efficiency are not compromised we will keep vans for up to ten years – this is a tremendous achievement considering they may travel up to 100,000 miles per year. We change them when we feel that a new vehicle will have an advantage on fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions which will outway the cost to the environment in building a new vehicle.
Our drivers are trained to drive in an environmentally responsible manner.
Where possible we arrange a backload for return to base to maximise the effective use of fuel resources. We can arrange groupage with some consignments with other less urgent consignments, again maximising the effective use of fuel resources. We are presently working on publishing vehicle daily locations to assist customers in helping us backload.
We endeavour to equip our trucks and vans with air dams/spoilers etc to reduce the coefficient of drag with the inherent resource savings.
Most of our trucks also utilise cruise control which provides far better fuel efficiency and all our trucks use engine exhaust braking.
We realise that vehicles do break down on rare occasion and have a protocol in place to rapidly deal with the ongoing delivery of customer consignments and in-house recovery of our vehicles.
We try always to stay one step ahead, regarding transport issues, to minimise the environmental impact we have and we are constantly seeking out new initiatives as they become available.
We endeavour to select the most appropriate vehicle for the job. For example, if your consignment will fit into one of our cars with emissions of less than 100g of CO2 per km then that is the vehicle we will try to use.
This would be a testimonial from someone really pleased with your servies.
