With over 40 vehicles on the road daily, from flat beds to artics and moffet forklifts, teamed with over 100 deliveries made daily nationwide, it is important we work towards being more sustainable and reducing our carbon footprint.
Currently, we have 6 depots across the UK and each depot covers a specific area, this helps limit the mileage covered by our vehicles on a daily basis, providing smarter deliveries and improving vehicle efficiency. This alongside our route planning software and new, more efficient vehicles is all supporting our Sustainability Strategy.
“With the Future Sustainability Strategy being a forerunner in our minds, we are actively planning ahead to become more sustainable as an organisation, commented Robert Wilshaw, Transport Manager for First Fence.
“There are already a lot of plans we’ve started to put in place to continue striving towards a more sustainable fleet. However, to take it one step further we are now looking into introducing electric vehicles and continuing to grow the number of depots that we have across the UK, in order to reduce the number of miles covered even further.”
We are also exploring how we can make our depots more environmentally friendly, with solar panels, electric vehicle charging points and alternative waste handling options.
