The Sherwood Press Group strengthens its commitment to environment protection

The Sherwood Press has worked closely with its strategic partner Loxleys, to reduce the impact of both companies’ transport activities on the environment.

Through careful analysis and planning, Sherwood Press now manage the transport requirements for both businesses based in Nottingham and Sheffield – collecting and distributing in a manner that optimises the travel routes, increases the fuel savings and greatly reduces emissions.

Over the first year the scheme has saved 62,500 road miles and 3,936 gallons of fuel. This equates to 46 tonnes of saved CO2 emissions.

The Sherwood Press Group has also invested in new vehicles for its transport fleet and designed new graphics displaying Sherwood’s values and its Pura® sustainable packaging brand. Each vehicle is equipped with an automated system that monitors how the vehicle is driven, alerting the driver when he is driving below the optimum standard efficiency. The device also incorporates a tracking system which has allowed The Group to control its efficiency and achieve over 30% improvement in fuel consumption in recent months.
