Third party UK logistics company Bibby Distribution has completed a four-year vehicle replacement programme designed to reduce the environmental impact of its 500-strong fleet.
The company’s fleet is now completely Euro VI compliant, with DAF, MAN, Mercedes-Benz and Renault trucks all in operation.
The move ensures the company’s trucks can operate sustainably anywhere in the country and enter any of the UK’s existing low emissions zones without paying an additional daily charge.
Bibby Distribution’s Head of Fleet and Procurement, Adam Purshall, said, “Reducing our carbon emissions is very important to us, as we work towards Bibby Distribution’s long-term goal of operating with zero waste, zero harm and zero environmental impact and having an optimal fleet is a huge part of that commitment.
“It also means a great deal to our customers who appreciate the focus we are giving to reducing their supply chain carbon footprint.”
In addition to fleet upgrades, enhanced driver training and more efficient routing and backloading has seen Bibby Distribution reduce its carbon footprint by 10 per cent since 2014.
