Clipper Logistics is pleased to announce it has been shortlisted for the Partnership Award at the Motor Transport Awards 2019, an award that celebrates genuine partnerships between operators, customers and suppliers.
With emissions high on the agenda, Clipper has long been committed to limiting the impact their operations have on the environment. As a result, Clipper began working together with Northern Commercials, IVECO, Don Bur and TIP in a unique five-way partnership in order to make changes to their fleet as part of their renewal strategy.
Pooling in their respective experience in logistics, transport operations and commercial vehicles, the five-way partnership fuelled Clipper’s goal to reduce not only just CO2 emissions, but also to reduce unnecessary road miles, whilst ensuring the miles accumulated were least cost.
Delivering on their vision, Clipper introduced 11 new vehicles and 16 uniquely designed semi-trailers exclusively designed to reduce emissions and increase capacity. These new vehicles and trailers are the largest most environmentally friendly in the industry, and is only the first step in Clipper’s fleet renewal strategy, paving the way for a low-carbon road transport network.
The Motor Transport Awards 2019 will take place at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London’s Park Lane on 3rd July 2019 to celebrate, recognise and reward excellence in the road freight transport industry.
