Aztek Logistics has been established since April 2003 and from small beginnings has grown into a major player in the warehousing and distribution industry. Having built the business on quality and the ability to deal with single pallet deliveries through to full load distribution throughout the UK and Europe.
In 2009, we acquired our 7 acre site in Letchworth Garden City, complete with 70,000 sq ft of secure, bulk and racked warehousing. Within this impressive facility we were able to offer a number of value added services, such as pick and pack, to complement our client’s many needs. Becoming a member of Pallet Track network in 2010, enabled us to continue our constant push for improvement in technology, which has helped us to provide cutting edge services such as online proof of delivery with track and trace, online job entry, and signature capture. Duncan Pannell, our Operations Manager is our elected Fuel and Emissions Champion and he explains how important FORS is to our Company.
We came across FORS when tendering for work across London. When we looked at the requirements and benefits of joining the scheme we saw that they fitted in perfectly with our ethos of improving safety whilst complementing our drive to improve fuel efficiency and reduce our environmental impact.
We take compliance and safety very seriously so we achieved our Bronze and Silver Accreditation first time. FORS did help us by providing training and tools that improved the policies and procedures.
The performance management toolkit really helped us set our targets for reducing our carbon footprint and Penalty charge notices while improving our MPG. FORS has helped us improve our filing systems and procedures.
