We have the flexibility to provide bespoke fleet design through:
Innovative solutions that improve fleet design in the supply chain
Industry-leading expertise that offers our customers the highest quality insight in fleet
Collaboration with customers and third parties to deliver bespoke solution
Our key focus is to provide you with an excellent, cost-effective service that contributes to an efficient supply chain and meets your needs, daily. This focus has played a key part in the 18% total reduction in carbon emissions across the business in the last five years.
This is clearly seen in our approach to the management of our 450-strong fleet. We have recently worked with a customer to develop bespoke trailers which would work with Automated Pallet Delivery (APD) systems to fully load or unload 26 pallets in just one minute. Traditional APD trailers can only be used at facilities that have the mechanism for loading, often resulting in trailers travelling empty on return.
In order to combat these wasted miles, we designed 10 customised trailers. These first-of-their-kind refrigerated trailers can be loaded by APD or traditional forklift thanks to a clever drop down floor. The floor is stowed in the ceiling when being used as an APD and drops down for use as a conventional trailer. This increases the opportunities for return journey backloads significantly, saving 40% carbon emissions per pallet/mile.
By listening to our client, we delivered a bespoke solution that improved the efficiency of their operation and reduced empty running by 252,000 miles, and carbon emissions by 333 tonnes per year.
