Fleet-free and eco-friendly
In 2018 government figures stated that the majority of Britain’s greenhouse gas output (an estimated 33 per cent of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions) came from the transport sector.
Everyone within the sector is responsible for reducing their emission, and great strides have been taken in the design and build of vehicles including making them more efficient, less polluting and, improving their aerodynamics, whilst improved driving skills to help reduce emissions.
JTS Relocations have gone a step further, owning no removal vehicles at all.
Dedicated to minimising the company’s carbon dioxide emissions and reducing their carbon footprint, rather than owning removal vans they source reliable low-emission transport as close to each job as possible so crews don’t need to travel long distances in large vehicles from a single depot. Instead where feasible they use public transport or a shared minibus to reach jobs, thus reducing emissions and traffic.
JTS Director Jenny Thorncroft explains “When we formed the company in 2008, we chose to operate in a far more sustainable and eco-friendly way. There were no electric HGV options available to us at the time and, with the cost of buying, maintaining and upgrading vehicles to adhere to increasing regulations we made the decision to go fleet-free.”
“The nature of commercial removals is such that our crews might be required to work anywhere in the UK and, though the electric and hybrid options are improving there are still logistical and supply chain issues. By hiring vehicles nearer the job site we reduce our carbon footprint and, contribute to the client’s local economy. Vehicles are driven economically so they use as little fuel as possible. It’s a win-win as far as we’re concerned.”
It’s only Logical CarbonLogic
As well as reducing their own carbon footprint JTS offer inclusion to their clients. They can calculate the most efficient method of carrying out any project, calculate the actual emissions and offer a baseline scheme to offset the CO2 free of charge. Through Carbon Footprint Ltd the client can be provided with a certificate on completion.
