Any Company in the Transport sector will have 'Wasted, Lost, Dead miles' it is an unfortunate by product of moving vehicles around, we all try and mitigate this even if it is only for the financial rewards of not traveling empty.
Carlone provides mainly regular contracted vehicle movements and we have a very good vehicle tracking system, over the last year I really took the time to analyse and log our movements especially 'Out of Service' or 'Empty'. It really shocked me with how many miles we waste, and I started really looking at things differently to solve this issue.
Carlone is actively looking at ways to add value to our Sustainable Transport Model and all we ask from you is communication! We have recently used this strategy to start multiple daily passenger movements at hardly any cost financially or environmentally, because we opened up communication with a few people and between us turned these empty journeys into important passenger movements.
I'm not saying we can do this for everyone, but we have lots of possibilities so if you have any ideas of regular passenger movements we could interwork or add value to, or something we could work together and start from scratch! Knowing we are going to keep pushing this model will give you peace of mind, we are always looking to improve our network and add value and save costs for all our customers. Please drop me a message it can't hurt!
