The Environment

We have a commitment to the environment and we already recycle any untainted waste cardboard, paper, plastic, metal and wood that our business creates. To ensure we achieve the best possible standards we have contracted Comply Direct to manage our waste package compliance.

All our company vehicles run on low emission diesel, we ensure that all our vehicles are an appropriate blend of suitability to the business requirements in terms of cost, emissions and safety to our employees.

Our delivery rounds are regularly replanned to ensure the most efficient route, we never travel further than 80 miles from our Peterborough depot and we operate a minimum order requirement to encourage our customers to reduce frequency of our visits.

All our delivery vehicles are multi-temperature allowing us to offer a comprehensive “One Stop” service, with our larger vehicles using zero emission eutectic beam refrigeration system, again with the aim of reducing our impact on the environment.
