UK: Brett Aggregates environmental award for reducing truck movements

Brett Aggregates and Ipswich port operator ABP Ipswich has jointly been awarded this year’s Rail Freight Group Community and Environmental Responsibility Award for its use of trains to move goods from the Port of Ipswich to London Concrete in Watford.

Brett Aggregates awarded for cutting truck movements from Ipswich port

Since January 2016, nearly 100,000 tonnes of sand and gravel have been transported by rail as a result of the project. Each 1,100 tonne trainload removes 38 heavy truck movements from the road system and eliminates a total of 8,040 road miles.

ABP’s short sea ports director, Andrew Harston, said: “Not only have we helped our customer win new business, we have also created a supply chain, which is environmentally sustainable, reduces congestion in Ipswich and has a minimal impact on neighbouring properties.”
