Miniclipper Celebrates Sustainable Future – Logistics Business® Magazine

November 7, 2022

Miniclipper logistics has released its first-ever Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) report, outlining its current achievements and future ambitions that will make it a more sustainable company.

The 20-page document shows how the fleet’s CO2 emissions have been reduced by 114,000 tonnes and fuel consumption by 43,599 liters in just two years through a proactive fleet replacement strategy.

Meanwhile, participation in DfT trials with extra-long double deck trailers has resulted in a 20% increase in capacity on each trip and a reduction in mileage to the Midlands Interchange by 60,000 per year.

It continues to increase the density of its local multi-drop deliveries for its customers and external logistics partners in order to optimize vehicle and driver utilization and to be able to test electric trucks in the near future.

A new driver well-being strategy has been introduced that has improved driver retention, while a driver referral program has helped Miniclipper grow its team. After each truck was equipped with Microlise telematics, the drivers signed up for a bonus program that rewards efficient driving and low fuel consumption. MPG improvements of between 5 and 19% have already been reported for 18 tonne trucks and tractor units.

Miniclipper has also focused heavily on reducing its energy efficiency, with gas consumption down -8.1% and electricity consumption down -6.2% from 2020 to 2021, helped by the introduction of an all-LED lighting policy. It also works with Trident Utilities to create effective processes, plans and goals to achieve its Future Net Zero (FNZ) Scope 1, 2 and 3 and PAS 2060 goals.

Peter Masters, Managing Director of Miniclipper, said: “We recognize that as a logistics company we have a responsibility to minimize our environmental impact locally, nationally and globally. We place these values ​​at the heart of all our decisions and continue to evaluate new initiatives that will reduce energy consumption and promote sustainable efficiency for our business and our customers.”
