Going Green with Palletline
Understandably, working in the haulage industry CO2 emissions and our impact on the environment is something we are conscious of and are continuously trying to improve. Our recent expansion of our fleet to welcome Euro 6 compliant engines has now been complemented by becoming one of the first Palletline members to embrace the new Environmental Livery.
As award-winning members of Palletline, we offer our clients access to UK and European palletised deliveries via 6,000 vehicles and 5 million sq. ft of warehouse space. Being a long-standing member of the Palletline community, together we support the same ethos of providing our customers with environmentally conscious solutions.
Graham Leitch, Group Managing Director of Palletline, commented: “We are delighted that our long-standing member Alan R Jones & Sons has welcomed our new multi-hub livery. This delivers a message to our mutual customers that the Palletline model not only delivers a high quality, highly efficient network freight service, but through our multi-hub strategy we also deliver less CO2, making us the carrier of choice for many environmentally aware clients.”
Palletline will be rolling out a new, green vehicle design across the UK in the coming months, celebrating its mileage saving and CO2 emission reducing benefits for its members. Keen to trial this new livery opportunity, we were the first members to sign up to the Environmental Livery scheme and are looking forward to launching the vehicle in South Wales and providing eco-friendly results for our clients.
In the long-term, Palletline’s Environmental Livery will increase the life of existing assets by over a decade, offering both commercial and environmental benefits for us as a company. Collectively, the livery will reduce group mileage by over 5 million kilometres per annum, as well as reducing CO2 emissions by nearly 14 million kgs a year.
Ray Clegg, Managing Director at Alan R Jones & Sons, concluded: “We are always looking for innovative ways to become more environmentally friendly and to ensure our compliance to the required standard. Our recent fleet expansion of Euro 6 engines, and now becoming a part of the Environmental Livery with Palletline will help to reduce operational costs, increase the life of our assets, all whilst doing our bit to help the environment.”
