Our Ambitions for Sustainability are Our Systems and Our People
In the real world of day-to-day operations, the crucial contributors to meeting our ambitions for sustainability are our systems and our people. At Fowler Welch we are lucky that our depot teams across the UK have a carefully-nurtured, cultural affinity with ensuring we do all we can in this area. Their attention to such key factors as vehicle fill, volumes management, collaboration and lane-sharing, coupled to a constant focus on empty running reductions, have all helped us move forward quickly towards achieving the FDF emission’s reduction standards and more.
They are aided by our massive and on-going investment into systems; new and powerful systems that deliver complete transparency on volumes and movements across our network, enabling full internal collaboration and operational efficiency.
On top of all this, and with strong main board support, the company has appointed three full-time SHEQ managers, giving them the responsibility for overseeing our operational performance in this respect on a day-to-day basis.
