How Can Logistics be More Environmentally Friendly?

Posted on May 16, 2018 at 9:15 pm

Historically, the field of logistics isn’t the most environmentally friendly one. It involves lots of transport, and often large, heavy lorries, that will increase the carbon footprint of the logistics organisation and pollute the planet. How can logistics be made greener?

  1. Use greener methods of transport. Some are now fully electric, or at least hybrid, making them a better choice for the environment.
  2. Reduce transportation between places where possible. Is there the potential to carry out some processes in different places? This will help give your organisation more flexibility.
  3. Reduce overseas transport where possible. This avoids the use of long distance travel between locations.
  4. Plan thoroughly. If a journey is well planned out, it will help you to be aware of each stage of the process. You can then think out the best ways to manage it.

Remember, reducing environmental impact also often means reducing your costs. It will be better for your business in many ways.

Dealing with a Car Insurance Claim

Posted on March 25, 2018 at 9:47 pm

An insurance claim is never ideal – it means something has happened to you car and you need to get it fixed, no matter how small or how serious. If you choose to claim on your insurance, it can be a really long process. It can also push up your premiums in future, meaning it isn’t always advisable to claim on insurance if you’re able to pay the costs yourself. Here are some things to think about:

  • Was it your fault? If not, you may be able to claim on the other driver’s insurance if you have their details. Always get a registration number if you can.
  • How much is the repair? If you are able to pay for the repair yourself, this is worth considering.
  • It could take a long time to get the issue fixed on insurance. You will need to talk to both insurance companies and garages to co-ordinate the repair.
