You’re under pressure to reduce your carbon footprint – and you need your 3PL partners to be part of that effort. At Weber, we’re serious about our commitment to green logistics practices.
We were one of the first members of the EPA SmartWay℠ emissions reductions program. Since joining, our fleet has maintained the highest EPA rating available.
Weber’s drayage solution uses only clean-certified trucks at the ports and rail yards.
Innovative lighting solutions in Weber warehouses have reduced electrical consumption. We use a combination of natural lighting, via new skylights, and have replaced old fixtures and bulbs with new T5 and T8 lighting. As a result, we have reduced the electrical usage in our facilities by up to 30%, cutting costs for clients and reducing our carbon footprint.
Weber has purchased machinery that recycles dunnage into packing material to be used as protective filler during shipping, greatly reducing the use of plastic filler.
To reduce empty miles, we continuously optimize last mile logistics and use partner carriers in some areas to reduce travel.
Inside the warehouse, many gas-powered material handling units have been replaced with battery-powered units.
Weber is extending its commitment to green logistics to its suppliers. Scope 3 emissions are those caused by vendors who supply goods and services to a company. To reduce Scope 3 emissions, all Weber vendors must be able to pass a test to ensure they are contributing to logistics sustainability goals.
