What can you tell us about your company? 🔍

Technology is the heart of our business. We use our technology to fully digitise how you book and manage road haulage eliminating costly and time consuming tasks. We eliminate the costs involved in procuring subcontract transport, onboarding & managing hauliers, booking & tracking loads, dealing with issues, chasing paperwork and paying invoices. Our scale and market intelligence ensures that you will never overpay for a load. We will typically deliver a direct saving on your existing spend of between 10-20%.

We are also passionate about sustainability. It is estimated that approximately 25% of trucks are running empty on our roads at any one time. Our mission is to fill those empty trucks using our technology and data to match loads across multiple vendors and hauliers. We work with hundreds of fully vetted and quality hauliers across the UK offering you easy and flexible access to road transport when you need it.

We have been working with some large retailers and achieved up to a 15% reduction in their empty running. This delivers huge carbon benefits, much more than can be achieved with alternative fuels

Why did you decide to carry out a GHG assessment? 🤔

Sustainability is one of the 4 key pillars that we have built our business on and so we want to lead by example. We have always strived to implement sustainable processes and practices where possible but never had a real idea of our green gas emissions or had a clear view of where exactly we should look to make improvements.

Why Greenly? 🌱

The platform is very easy to use and is clear and concise. The visuals are good and the access to various bits if material i.e. communication templates, case studies and training has been great. We have had amazing support from various members of the team; they have had a lot of patience with us and provided the guidance we needed whilst we were trying to scope out our carbon reporting requirements.

What were the outcomes of the Carbon Footprint report? 📊

Our results showed that we emitted 495.5 tCO2e in 2022. The main areas we need to focus on are travel and commute which we have tried to impact by implementing an electric car scheme for our employees. Another area that we have to focus on is supplier engagement so that we can ensure we are implementing a responsible purchasing policy. The benefits of implementing the reduction action required are it will reinforce that we are committed to being a leader in sustainability within our industry and will also help demonstrate this to our customer, the majority of which see this as a priority when it comes to who they do business with.
