Electricity reduced by 54%

As Lancashire's only surviving rail freight terminal, we are proud to be able to offer an environmentally friendly form of transport... but we are equally proud of the other policy decisions that we have made to keep our carbon footprint as low as possible:

  • Replacement of all warehouse lighting with energy efficient bulbs and fittings has reduced our electricity consumption by 54%
  • Use of the Palletways Network to ensure that vehicles are fully loaded in both directions for the biggest part of their journey, which is mainly undertaken at night to ease both road congestion and increase fuel efficiency.
  • Replacement of older vehicles and trailers with more fuel efficient alternatives.
  • A commitment to the regular maintenance of all vehicles and equipment which has resulted in being awarded the "GREEN ZERO" rating by VOSA, the highest standard achievable.
  • A target to reduce even further the amount of empty running by our long distance vehicles.
  • Introduction of e transport and POD scanning to reduce the amount of paperwork and postage

We recognise that companies like ourselves have to play our part. We continually strive to minimise our environmental impact by carrying out our business as efficiently as possible.
