BIBBY DISTRIBUTION SHORTLISTED FOR FTA LEADERSHIP IN LOW CARBON AWARD
18 April 2016
Bibby Distribution has cemented its position as a leader in driving down the carbon cost of logistics after being shortlisted for the Freight Transport Association’s (FTA) LCRS Leadership in Carbon Reduction Award.
Bibby Distribution’s shortlisting comes on the back of a variety of carbon-cutting initiatives across the business, ranging from wider use of longer semi-trailers (LSTs), and a redesign of its milk collection fleet, to revolutionary new ‘virtual’ warehouses and tailored driver training.
The broad spectrum of initiatives has tackled carbon emissions at every level of the business, providing a holistic approach to sustainability.
Robin Dearden, SHEQ Compliance Manager, Bibby Distribution, says: “Carbon reduction drives innovation in the supply chain – it improves efficiency of operations, it encourages collaboration, and it’s the right thing to do for the environment and the communities in which we operate. That’s why cutting carbon is at the heart of Bibby Distribution’s operations and we’re delighted that this commitment has been recognised by the voice of the logistics industry, the FTA.”
The winner of the FTA LCRS Leadership in Carbon Reduction Award will be announced at the FTA Multimodal Awards on 10 May.
