The Green Issue

Commercial kitchens are significant consumers of energy which has led to catering equipment manufacturers placing an increased focus on their product’s carbon footprint.

Being a green, energy efficient company is now more important than ever, which is why Keith Elkington Transport have stepped up our green credentials to provide an eco-friendly solution to the supply chain.

We have a fleet of Mercedes Sprinter vans and DAF LF lorries, all of which specially built for the catering equipment industry, and are the most fuel efficient and sustainable vehicles on the market thanks to the latest Euro 6 engines.

We also offer full driver training for our team and enforce driver behaviour monitoring to ensure that their green standards are upheld.

Keith Elkington Transport are proud to say that just two per cent of our end-of-life equipment, including WEEE and refrigeration, goes to landfill.

Neil Williamson, Operations Director, said: “By investing in our fleet, drivers and recycling procedures, we have given our customers further foundations for reducing their product’s overall carbon footprint.

“By selecting a green logistics supplier, manufacturers can ensure their pledge to the environment is not just an eye-catching headline but an ethos that travels further down their supply chain to really make an impact.”

This commitment that Keith Elkington Transport shows to ensuring a green and environmentally friendly service is just further proof of why we are the UK’s leading provider of specialised transport and associated services within the commercial catering equipment industry.
