Menzies Distribution named Environmental Haulier of the Year

Menzies Distribution was today named Environmental Haulier of the Year 2014 at the Transport News Scottish Rewards.

At an award ceremony in Glasgow this morning, judges commended the wholesaler for reducing its carbon footprint by 30 per cent in the ten years up to 2011, and a further reduction of 2.3 per cent on an absolute basis in the last two years. They also recognised Menzies Distribution’s membership of the Eco Stars scheme, and its support of the Freight Transport Association’s Logistics Carbon Reduction Scheme.

The award was collected by Transport and Logistics Manager Allan Hughes. He said: “I was delighted to accept the award on behalf of all my colleagues. We have always had a strong environmental focus across the business so recognition of this kind at such a high level is very welcome.”

A feature on Menzies Distribution appears in the December issue of Transport News magazine.
