With its constant use of transport, the logistics industry inevitably has high C02 emissions. However, rather just accepting or ignoring this, at Burns Express we are firmly committed to being environmentally responsible and as energy efficient as possible:
- Euro V engines - the majority of vehicles in our fleet have Euro V engines, which produce the lowest levels of exhaust emissions. The rest have Euro IV. As we continue to replace our vehicles on an ongoing basis, our entire fleet will soon be based on Euro Vs, causing the least harm to the planet as possible.
- Groupage service - operating within a groupage service means there are less vehicles on the road doing multiple journeys.
- Technology - using up to the minute route trackers for every journey we make means our drivers go from A to B via the most direct route possible and without the slightest chance of getting lost along the way - so wasting fuel is simply not an option.
- Electric forklifts - we use electric forklifts in our warehouse which are completely free from exhaust gas pollution, helping to keep our emissions down.
