One-drop mixed-load delivery solution said to be more sustainable, economical and efficient

MANNOK, manufacturers of one of the UK and Ireland’s most diverse range of construction products, are offering a unique mixed-load delivery solution to make the delivery of their products more sustainable.

Mannok sustainably mixed loads combine heavy and light products in one single delivery, maximizing use of trailer capacity and significantly reducing the volume of lorries on the road.

 

As well as being highly convenient for customers, who can receive a range of products in one delivery, Mannok say the mixed-load solution has reduced associated carbon emissions by almost 50%.

The delivery solution allows customers to receive, in one single drop, a mix of heavier products such as cement, thermal blocks or roof tiles, which are topped off with lighter products such as PIR and EPS insulation.

With weight restrictions limiting the volume of heavier products permitted on lorries, it is often the case that lorries carry deliveries with empty space in the trailer. The Mannok solution ensures no space is wasted by carrying full loads with a mix of building products, cutting the number of vehicles required on the road and reducing the environmental impact. It is also significantly more economical and efficient, say Mannok.

Commenting on the mixed-load delivery method, Mannok business support manager Rose Mullally said: ‘There aren’t many companies who can offer the same versatility as Mannok, as they don’t have the same multi-product portfolio. The solution is very popular with our customers, who are seeking to partner with companies who can demonstrate a real commitment to sustainability, as well as offering them greater flexibility.

‘We’ve found that the industry is focusing on these priorities even more in recent years. Yes, people want to know you have high-quality products that are fully accredited and offer value for money, but this needs to be backed-up by a unique service offering and a proven record of responsible operations. That’s what we’re committed to delivering.’

To avail of Mannok sustainably mixed loads, the company encourages customers to place product orders at the same time and its despatch team will mix the load with heavy and light building products to ensure an efficient and sustainable one-drop delivery.
