28 August 2019 #CV Sector #Logistics #News #TNB News

Proficient driving, fleet investment and energy efficient warehouses have helped Bibby Distribution reduce its net carbon emissions by 10 per cent over the last five years.

A combination of enhanced driver training, new and more economical vehicles, fewer empty trailer runs, energy saving lighting and electric materials handling equipment (MHE) cut the company’s carbon footprint in 2018 by a tenth, compared to that recorded in 2014.

Andrew Mawson, Bibby Distribution’s Head of Safety, Health, Environment and Quality (SHEQ), said, “We have looked across the board at all the different ways we can reduce our environmental impact and the latest results show this work is paying off.

“Our drivers are playing a significant role through improved vehicle operation, our fleet is the most efficient we’ve ever had, and we’ve reduced empty runs by 40 per cent each month.

“The focus we’ve given to improving our warehousing practices has also delivered phenomenal results.”
