Our sites

We like our depots to be closer to our customers, so our average distance to a customer is just 26 miles. We’ve also upgraded or built as new 50% of our depot sites to ensure our infrastructure is as sustainable as possible. Here are some of the ways we’ve made them more sustainable:

We’ve installed air curtains above our coldstore doors in Bradford, saving 60,000kW a year – representing a 60% reduction in energy requirement.

We’ve put in translucent roof sheeting, more efficient building cladding and roof materials to reduce energy usage.

We use recycled water for example by filtering rain water and using this to wash our vehicles.

 

Our latest new and refurbished sites were designed with environmental considerations in mind, using technologies to reduce energy and water consumption, minimise GHG emissions, and enable attenuation of storm water run-off
