Family transport firm Campeys of Selby has won its biggest contract to date thanks to its focus on pioneering sustainable distribution initiatives and robust roadmap to carbon neutrality.
Headquartered in Selby, North Yorkshire, Campeys has signed a three-year deal with BEWI, a manufacturer of insulation and construction products, to become the exclusive logistics provider at its Howden site after successfully working with the business for the last two years.
“Our growing reputation for being a truly environmentally aware operator and our commitment to decarbonisation was a key aspect of winning this significant contract with BEWI. We’re investing right across the business to help meet our net zero aspirations and it’s clear that environmental improvement is helping to strengthen our commercial proposition,” said Harry Campey, Campeys of Selby Commercial & Operations Director.
“We’re delighted to be able to help BEWI reduce the environmental impact of its distribution operations and help achieve its ESG targets, and we will continue to work closely together to deliver continuous environmental improvement and year-on-year carbon reduction.”
Campeys has a significant 3PL on-site presence, with 20 trucks, 40 trailers and a dedicated planning team integrated into the customer site to help deliver service excellence and meet both environmental and delivery KPIs. With access to customer systems, the team helps manage orders, consolidating goods into full loads and running smaller consignments through the Palletforce network to help deliver maximum load fill.
Campeys extensive and agile fleet, which includes artic, rigid, flat-bed and Moffett-equipped vehicles, alongside its Silver FORS accreditation ensures it has the optimum solution for delivery to retailers, direct to customers and construction sites.
However, it’s the company focus on providing some of the industry’s most sustainable transport solutions, continuous environmental improvement to decarbonise its distribution operations and its commitment to operate a net zero fleet by 2030, which helped seal the multi-year deal.
Over 10% of Campeys’ fleet is powered by non-fossil fuels, including bio-CNG which offers a 90% reduction in carbon emissions over traditional diesel.
“We will work together with Campeys to maintain and improve our service offer for BEWI customers whilst implementing initiatives to enhance efficiency and reduce carbon emissions. We hope to inspire other industry players to prioritise sustainable distribution. Combining our expertise and working to reduce carbon in our logistics operation is part of our BEWI sustainability commitment,” concluded John Cooper, BEWI Managing Director.
