Rhenus Warehousing Solutions UK, which recently won an award for its sustainability measures, is helping retailers become more environmentally-friendly, by operating from a new, sustainable warehousing campus in Nuneaton, Warwickshire.
Rhenus Warehousing Solutions UK is a logistics supplier that provides warehousing, fulfilment and returns processing to multi-channel retailers and brands. It utilises the latest emerging technologies to provide efficient storage, B2B and B2C order fulfilment, value-added services, and comprehensive returns management.
The third-party logistics provider is committed to having a positive impact on the environment, and recently received the 2023 UKWA (United Kingdom Warehousing Association) Award for Excellence in Sustainability. The win showcases how Rhenus Warehousing Solutions UK is focused on energy efficiency, carbon reduction and implementing environmental initiatives.
The brand-new sustainable facility, known as the ‘Rhenus Campus’, is ideally situated in the heart of the Golden Triangle, a prime location nearby the M1, M69, M6 and M42. The campus is home to two warehouses, measuring one million square feet in total across 64 acres.
The ‘Rhenus Campus’ is certified “BREEAM Outstanding” and has been designed with reference to the UK Green Building Council (UKGBC) Framework Definition for Net Zero Carbon Buildings.
The campus promotes sustainability by generating renewable energy on-site via solar panels and air source heat pumps, installing electric car charging points, and caring for local wildlife by introducing hedgehog homes, bat and bird boxes and habitat boards all made from recycled timber.
The site will also be home to a pond, wildflower grassland and meadow, and between 700 and 900 native trees which are being planted to encourage biodiversity and enhance existing woodland.
Kerry Delaney, Regional Director – Europe North-West at Rhenus Warehousing Solutions UK, said: “At Rhenus Warehousing Solutions UK, being sustainable is a core part of our ethos and we have made it a priority at our campus. We pride ourselves on reaching high sustainability standards and are on-hand to help retailers reach their own environmental targets.”
Rhenus Warehousing Solutions UK specialises in contract logistics for retail, wholesale and ecommerce warehousing and distribution. It offers its customers a personalised service and prides itself on building strong relationships.
