We are committed to improving our transport efficiencies
New Arctic lorries have replaced smaller less efficient rigids. With the improved efficiency of the upgraded engines, emissions have been reduced and the mpg of transport has improved by 17%. By using arctics, rather than rigids, the number of vehicles on the road has been reduced, delivering the same volume in fewer trips. Carbon is also being offset by the use of more biofuel.
Backloads of raw materials are being returned on the empty Arctics reducing 3rd party deliveries, therefore reducing mileage and emissions.
The company operates a cycle to work scheme for staff via the Green Commute Initiative who offer the best benefits to employees.
