We uphold the highest standards for our clients and stakeholders, ensuring that our global supply chain practices are compliant.

At TEPS, we take our responsibilities to society and the environment seriously. We recognise that sustainability is key for long-term success in all industries, so we make this a priority across our business operations. From the vehicles we use and the functionalities of our site to developing environmentally conscious training programmes for team members, everything we do takes an environmentally responsible approach. Through these commitments, TEPS strives to create tangible change towards achieving real sustainability goals.

Upgrading the vehicle
Euro 6

Our fleet has been modernised with the latest Euro 6 Standard trucks, enabling greater power and improved fuel efficiency – making them a greener choice and perfect for use in ultra-low emission zones.

Most efficient tyres – Michelin

We invest in Michelin tyres for effortless efficiency: their revolutionary silica-based tread rubber allows the vehicle’s engine to maintain optimal fuel consumption by keeping the tyres cool, in all conditions.

Ad-blue reduces Exhaust emissions

Our Ad-Blue solution helps diesel vehicles meet the stringent Euro 6 exhaust emission regulations. This advanced, non-toxic and odourless formula has proven to be highly effective in dramatically reducing emissions of harmful NOx particles, making our trucks’ performance more environmentally friendly than ever before!

Active Tyre Management Programme

At TEPS, we take recycling to the next level – even down to how we manage our tyres, as our tyre management process offers a range of sustainability options.

We work with local businesses in Hull who help us to recycle and repurpose used tyres for various initiatives; from giving children the playgrounds they deserve to aiding road paving projects or preventing landslides by using them as embankment fillers. That way, you can trust that none of the tyres will be unnecessarily sent into landfills!

Proactive idle-engine management

We strive to reduce fuel emissions in our fleet by staying on top of idle times and MPG standards. Our real-time communication with drivers helps us monitor average idling times, keeping environmental impact at a minimum while also providing an efficient service.

Sustainable warehousing and storage

Waste

Our 10-acre site and 165,000 square feet of supply chain storage space across four warehouses enables us to take great strides towards recycling a variety of waste products.

We have multiple areas designated for different materials, such as wood, plastic, metals and more, which facilitates our comprehensive partnering with dedicated recycling programmes.

Our current success rate is an impressive 98%, yet we remain devoted to evolution in this area until the absolute highest standard has been achieved!

Warehouse

Our sustainability mission runs deep and our warehouses in Hull are equipped with the latest PIR lighting technology, powered exclusively through LED. This smart light control system is designed to detect motion in order to illuminate areas only when necessary – a ground-breaking approach that drastically reduces energy consumption while still providing ample visibility for staff.

Electric forklifts

For more than two decades, TEPS has been utilising electric forklifts in our storage facilities. Not only are they better for the environment, but our drivers find them more comfortable and easier to handle and operate. This ensures that our teams are better placed to provide the highest level of care for your goods.
