Palletforce has boosted its green credentials after obtaining the ISO 14001 accreditation, which recognises organisations that are controlling and improving their environmental performance.
The Staffordhire-based network has 86 members working across the UK and Europe and more than 600 trucks passing through its hub every night.
Palletforce had to demonstrate its ability to measure, manage and report key aspects of environmental performance and that it is working to improve certain objectives.
John Rothery, Palletforce’s health, safety, quality and facilities manager, said: “In areas that are controlled by our members, suppliers and customers, our approach is to work closely with them to help them understand and progressively minimise the impact of services provided and purchased.”
The company was also recognised for its standards in health and safety a few weeks ago and now holds the ISO 14001, ISO 9011 and OHSAS 18001 standards.
