On Friday 17th February N.Y.K Line hosted the 19th Haulier of the Year award ceremony in Southampton to celebrate the success of the 2016 operation with its valued Transport suppliers. The event is the last of its kind in the UK and allows NYK Line to thank its suppliers for the hard work and effort that went into the business in 2016. Pentalver are very pleased to announce that Pentalver Cannock Limited was recognised, winning the NYK Environmental Haulier of the Year award. The environment and the effect of the container industry on the world around us is high on the agenda of all major shipping companies and has been recognised within the Pentalver business for some time. Winning the award highlights the efforts that have been undertaken by Pentalver to reduce its impact on the local environment and show the on-going commitment within our business to improve environmental standards.
Pentalver continually invests in the latest eco-friendly equipment reducing the emissions from the Pentalver sites. Using technology and data analysis Pentalver trains all operational staff in safe and positive driving techniques, efficient driving methods and reducing idling time. Within the depot operation all waste is separated and stored then recycled using qualified business partners to remove from site. All Pentalver lighting for the depots has now been switched to use the latest LED technology reducing the overall consumption within our business. Our trucks are washed using recycled water from the site and treated to ensure chemicals are retained on site for collection by specialists.
This is an on-going journey and Pentalver will continue to reduce its impact on the environment whilst offering a first class service to its customers. We are very proud to be recognised by NYK Line in winning this award and thank them for their continued support and business throughout the year and into 2017.
