Logistics and Distribution

Your waste can almost all be classed as a commodity, you deliver to multiple outlets across the UK, you have large distribution facilities using too much energy and you have many staff to manage and new customers each day to focus on.

Lego TruckThe challenges facing the Logistics & Distribution industry are well documented when it comes to sustainability. With the significant costs in operating vehicles, premises and the increasing costs of waste management left unchecked, your costs and sustainability performance can quickly spiral out of control.

These are just some of the challenges that you can face when trying to manage existing or implement new sustainability strategies. Your goals of landfill diversion, increased recycling, energy reduction or simply having complete visibility of all your data can seem difficult to achieve without your staff losing the focus of moving goods in a timely manner.

This is where the green house can really add value, by designing a sustainability strategy to suit the individual needs of your organisation. We have a proven track record of success with many Organisations and will help you on your journey. From initial auditing to get a true picture of the current situation, through to implementation, education of your staff, service delivery and tracking costs.

How we can help with waste and recycling

Using our unique Reverse Waste approach guarantees that we look at everything as a commodity ?rst and then waste as a last resort, creating maximum diversion from land?ll, cost reductions and substantial revenues. This holistic approach delivers high outputs of recycling to increase your Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) performance whilst reducing costs and avoiding land?ll tax.

Using our Secure Disposal services can often avoid the traditional method of burying these items deep in a land?ll. Additionally, during peak periods, temporary staff bring new challenges, especially when it comes to separating out valuable packaging for recycling.

But, it doesn’t stop there. Collecting your waste and recycling on time, every time, comes as standard in our fully compliant services. the green house can add further value with our management packages, enhancing your business performance by increasing recycling, reducing costs and improving your CSR credentials.

By focusing on waste as a commodity, we can signi?cantly reduce and offset your collection costs by increasing separation for recycling across your supply chain. Ensuring waste packaging and goods are diverted for consolidation and sale using our Commodity Trading and Equipment Supply services. Add our education packages to this and the green house will ensure that everyone in your organisation understands the whole picture.

How we can help with utilities

We take over as the main point of contact with all utility providers and change the billing address to our own offices where our data processing team scan invoices daily and assign them to the correct asset in our Technology Platform, Campus.

We can validate each invoice against both the contract and tariff rates agreed with the utility provider and if there is any faults with the invoice we will contact the utility to resolve it and reissue or credit the invoice. Once it has been validated it is passed through to your Purchase Ledger team for payment.

This service has saved significant amounts for customers over the years both from a reduction on their own admin resource requirements but in catching the estimated 20% of energy bills that are incorrectly issued by UK utility providers.
