Bibby Distribution's CO2 emissions have shrunk for the third year running, thanks to an award-winning array of carbon-cutting initiatives.
The 3PL's annual carbon report has found that total CO2 emissions per km have dropped by a further 5.9 per cent on 2015, on top of the continuous improvement seen since 2013.
The reduction in emissions is the result of a spectrum of smart initiatives that improve efficiency at every level. Bibby Distribution has also been recognised by the Freight Transport Association (FTA) as a sector leader, with the 3PL winning the FTA's Leadership in Carbon Reduction Award in May.
Andrew Mawson, Head of Safety, Health, Environment and Quality, Bibby Distribution, says: "Carbon emission reduction isn't an 'extra' for Bibby Distribution. It's at the heart of everything we do. Reducing CO2means our fleet is working more efficiently. That's the right thing to do, because it's good for the environment, but it's also better for customers, as it's good business sense. We prioritise innovation, cut costs, and help ensure our customers can do business without costing the Earth."
The ongoing improvement has been delivered by several major projects introduced over the past two years. Dual-fuel vehicles have been introduced on high-mileage contracts, cutting individual emissions by 10 per cent, while the 3PL's active participation in the ongoing longer semi-trailer trial has seen Bibby Distribution conduct 8,400 fewer journeys without compromising on volume.
Additionally, the introduction of a new type of tanker has cut fuel usage by 53 per cent during the process of collecting milk from farms, and all drivers across Bibby Distribution are now benefiting from individually tailored training, that uses the 3PL's full fleet telematics to identify and eliminate inefficient driving practices.
