October T shirt Printing goes Carbon Neutral.
WEGO deliver your parcels and post with the greatest of care, paying close attention to the cost to your business and to the environment. It’s our business to find the best delivery solution to meet your business needs — and the needs of the world we live in. This means providing you with the most practical, cost effective, efficient and sustainable transport solutions. Day in, day out.
Our cyclists and electric and biofuel vans not only save you valuable time and money. They help to reduce your company’s carbon footprint. Previously known as Pedal Express, we have renamed ourselves WEGO Carbon Neutral Couriers to reflect our ethos and expanding fleet of eco-friendly vehicles. While we continue to use our original trademark bike and trailer option to courier small items locally, we use renewable energy when delivering further afield.
By bike or van, we aim to deliver when you want, where you want. And at a price you — and the environment — can afford.
Delivering door to door
Your company needs to be sure of a fast, secure and reliable delivery service.
That’s what we provide. When your call comes into our central Nottingham depot we find the best, quickest and most sustainable means of delivery.
– A small document to go across town is best taken by a cyclist; or a consignment of small parcels by bike and trailer.
– A large parcel to be delivered in the Nottingham area might go by electric or biofuel van.
– Or, delivering city-to-city, our courier might travel by bike, train and finally bike. Our speedy service to London for urgent, secure documents is invaluable for businesses, linking the capital to their doorstep. In mapping our journeys — many of which involve same day delivery — we look at speed and security, at reducing the impact of road congestion and at road miles.
We also have links with partner couriers for overnight or next day carrier solutions. This gives you lower cost choices such as sending an urgent parcel with other items going to the same destination. And our later collections or deliveries can effectively extend your business day.
Who do we serve?
WEGO customers include local authorities, solicitors, large corporate businesses and small sole traders. Trusting us to deliver their single items or large, multiple deliveries, or provide a full post room service, leaves them free to focus on what they do best.
Proud to be carbon neutral
Our green courier solutions have successfully offset the small amount of carbon created by our activities. We believe that makes us the first carbon neutral courier business to be awarded an Offset Certificate in the East Midlands.
This has been made possible by our customers’ ongoing support and so our thanks go to organisations that use us to complement their ecofriendly aims and environmental policies. Nottingham City Council, for example, uses us to distribute books within their library service.
Socially responsible companies go green
We are all now realising that our activities at home and at work have an impact on the world’s finite resources. But everybody can make a cost-cutting contribution to being ‘greener’ and socially responsible.
Looking at the business case, WEGO director Chris Beattie explains: “A company using a diesel-powered vehicle only half a day for deliveries is a waste of resources. Yet they could reduce dependency on non-sustainable fuels by outsourcing deliveries — increasing their bottom line profit and being seen by their customers as socially responsible.
“New technology has created a virtual world where we can click and send, sell and buy. But in the real world we still need actual deliveries. WEGO works hard to meet that need in a resource-conscious way by using renewable energy and green technology. “Being carbon neutral is a big deal to me. Our efforts have put us in a ‘below average’ carbon footprint bracket for organisations in our sector and size. We’ve achieved that through using cycles, electric and biofuel vans.”
