Environmental Commitment

All freight operations are designed to ensure minimal impact on the environment.

Environmentally sustainable practices

Gilders are committed to environmentally sustainable practices.

As an industry leader, we have a responsibility to positively contribute to the preservation of our environment for future generations.

All freight operations are designed to ensure minimal impact on the environment.  We strive to measure, benchmark, and assess our actions across all platforms from warehousing to transportation and procurement. With the implementation of ‘Green’ initiatives, we reduce our emission footprint and generate greater value for our people, customers, and the communities we operate in.  

Our “Green” Commitment:

  • Improving utilisation within our vehicles using split deck trailers

  • LTL offering combining general freight to reduce the miles driven thus reducing our carbon footprint

  • Reducing emissions and improving longevity by utilising modern engine efficient vehicles, the highest in quality parts and pursue electric handling equipment where possible

  • Improve efficiency with thorough vehicle aerodynamics, tire rolling resistance and engine performance

  • Mitigating the use of pallets where possible by using clamp hoists to load and unload product

  • Work towards a completely paperless environment

  • Recycling materials

  • Increasing awareness among our staff, suppliers, and clients of our collective responsibility to promote and adopt environmentally sustainable business practices
