Efficient use of our fleet

  


We help our suppliers avoid unnecessary travel by "backhauling" product from their factories when our trucks are returning empty to our distribution centres. In 2015/16, we saved our suppliers in the USA and UK from travelling 4.3 million miles. This equates to 6,304 tonnes of avoided carbon emissions (the equivalent of taking 1,341 passenger vehicles off the road for a year*).
