Third-party logistics specialist Rhenus Warehousing Solutions UK has won an award for its pioneering sustainability measures at the 2023 UKWA (United Kingdom Warehousing Association) Awards for Excellence.

Rhenus was crowned the winner in the Sustainability category at the UKWA Annual Lunch & Awards on 27th June in London. The UKWA Award for Excellence in Sustainability marks the achievements of an organisation that continues to make strides towards a more sustainable future by driving positive change.

Rhenus says the win showcases how the company is focused and committed to energy efficiency, carbon reduction and implementing environmental initiatives.

UKWA’s prestigious Awards recognise excellence in the warehousing sector and highlight the achievements of the industry’s top performing professionals and organisations. This year, a record-number of entries were submitted across 10 categories.

Rhenus Warehousing Solutions UK is a logistics supplier that provides sustainable warehousing, fulfilment and returns processing to multi-channel retailers and brands across a range of sectors. The company is in the process of building two new sustainable warehouses in Nuneaton, Warwickshire, known as the Rhenus Campus. The first warehouse, measuring 210,000 square feet, officially opened in June this year.

The site measures 1m square feet in total, situated on 64 acres, and is certified BREEAM Outstanding, meaning it will reach the highest level of sustainability and be one of the greenest warehouses in the UK, set new standards for environmental protection, and help customers achieve their own net zero goals.

The ‘Rhenus Campus’ also features extensive green spaces, a pond, a wildflower grassland and meadow, and homes for local wildlife – including birds, bats and hedgehogs – made from recycled timber. Renewable energy will be generated on-site via solar panels and air source heat pumps, and electric car charging points are being installed.

Kerry Delaney, regional director – Europe North-West at Rhenus Warehousing Solutions UK, said: “We are immensely proud to have won the UKWA Award for Excellence in Sustainability. At Rhenus, being sustainable is a core part of our ethos and we have made it a top priority at our Rhenus Campus. We are hugely committed to positively impacting the environment and paving the way for sustainable logistics, and are so thrilled that our efforts and dedication have been recognised by such an important industry association.”

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.
