WITH a corporate fleet in excess of 100 vehicles, CIRCLE EXPRESS, the principal road transport provider to the airfreight industry, has already gone beyond its legal requirements in meeting CO2 emissions control.
London – LEZ
Its Heathrow-based fleet is 100% compliant with new legislation – some of which is not effective until July of this year. It is also 85% compliant of legislation that is not effective until 2012. At the same time, corporately, 64% of its total fleet across the country is also compliant. The remainder will comply well ahead of the 2012 deadline.
Circle's fleet director NICK HEDDERLY, an expert in CO2 compliance and hazardous movements, says: “Circle has been pre-emptive at every stage of new and changing legislation in ensuring its fleet is always compliant, starting with Euro3, which is okay until 2012, at which time Euro 4 takes over. Legislation changes again (estimated 2016) and to remain compliant then, Euro 5 must be implemented. This means our vast numbers of airfreight customers, particularly those around Heathrow, may be assured that their collections and deliveries are being moved in vehicles that do not harm the environment”
Circle's considerable experience and expertise, led by Hedderly, also extends beyond its vehicle fleet in to ADR (the movement of hazardous or dangerous goods), pollution, contamination and Duty of Care to the Environment. Circle is an Independent Approved Training Provider, and runs regular courses, not only for its own drivers, but also those from outside the company. Again, Circle ensures all its corporate practices comply with current legislation. For example, Circle oversees that its vehicles are cleaned with materials and detergents which are authorised and compliant with regulations, so they do not pose a threat to the environment. This also means special awareness is given to the drainage systems when cleaning takes place. In fact, all used engine oils from vehicles that are serviced on site are voluntarily submitted to be recycled (as opposed to be incinerated) at Sharps Oil refinery in Twickenham at some considerable cost to Circle.
Circle Express attracts new business, not only because of its reliable and efficient road transport services, but also because of its highly responsible approach to protecting the environment.
