BC Transport, the haulage firm, has upgraded its entire vehicle fleet by adding in green alternatives that will help to improve the fuel efficiency of its fleets. The Bollington, Cheshire based hauling company purchased four Renault tractor units that each have a green Euro 5 engine installed in them.
The new vehicles will be used to deliver packages across the country and they will be used to replace older vehicles that are not as sustainable and fuel efficient. Therefore, the company hopes that the new investment will help to reduce costs while reducing CO2 emissions at the same time.
BC Transport Fleet Director, Adam Chadwick, stated that they have already started using the new vehicles for two months and they can already see the wide difference that the vehicles are making when it comes to fuel consumption and how much mpg the vehicles get.
He added that outside of helping the company to save money and become ‘greener,’ the trucks are also a much better environment for their drivers to be in long term and they show that BC Transport is a modern innovative business to other people who see the vehicles out making deliverers.
The firm has been in business for the past five decades, but in 2001 officially became a Palletforce member. Haulers help to reduce how many lorries are needed by coordinating with each other and optimizing any empty space.
As a result, Managing Director of BC Transport, Chris Goodwin explained that they have been able to provide a better delivery service from a reduced fleet size that actually delivers an increased amount of deliveries. This has also helped them to make a more sustainable contribution to the UK environment. In addition to the new vehicles, the company also trains drivers on the best methods for driving to reduce their overall fuel consumption.
