SWA offers more services to help members reduce emissions

The Scottish Wholesale Association (SWA) is collaborating with The Algorithm People and Auditel to drive fleet sustainability, reduce carbon emissions and manage costs.

Both organisations have become affiliate members of the SWA and will participate in a special webinar later this month (31 August) aimed at helping members – both wholesalers and suppliers – to cut costs across their business operations and reduce and calculate their carbon emissions.

The Algorithm People specialises in route optimisation, fleet scheduling and electric vehicle optimisation solutions. It is offering SWA members access to its My Transport Planner (MTP) optimisation platform at a discounted rate, with selected members also getting free access to trial and showcase the power of MTP.

The software maximises operational efficiency, and the company’s clients typically report improved productivity, reduced fuel cost and lower emissions of 20%. Members attending this month’s webinar will have the opportunity to explore the benefits of routing and scheduling optimisation.

Colin Smith, SWA chief executive, said: “Our association is committed to supporting our members on their journey to a more environmentally sustainable future so we are delighted to be collaborating with The Algorithm People, giving our membership the opportunity to access the range of optimisation tools which will help them to reduce cost, fuel and CO2.”

Meanwhile, carbon and cost management company Auditel is working with SWA members to help them achieve sustainable change on their carbon and cost reduction journey. Supported by over 100 procurement and carbon specialists from a broad range of professions and industries, Auditel offers knowledge and expertise in procurement and carbon management.

Smith said: “Auditel is already working with SWA members, and during the webinar they will demonstrate success stories on how they have helped organisations to cut carbon, save costs and drive greater efficiencies across several areas of their business.

“The aim of the webinar is to help members not just to navigate their journey towards net zero, but also to fund it through our cost savings and procurement solutions.”

The webinar, titled ‘Counting Carbon, Saving Cost & Driving Efficiencies’, runs from 1pm-2pm on 31 August. To register for free, go to https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/Z5JKJ3B
