Waste generated from transport & warehousing industry

For any size transport company that offers road or sea freight, fleet management or warehousing services, Benzoil can help to:

  • Reduce overheads
  • Improve environmental performance
  • Be more competitive

With pressure on industry to reuse and recycle waste materials and to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill, there has never been a better time to improve waste management.

Wastes in the transport and warehousing industry are generated by activities such as freight transport, vehicle maintenance and cleaning, freight handling, and warehousing operations.  Many of these wastes arise from the repair and servicing of vehicles and are hazardous or controlled wastes, e.g. tyres and wash waters.  These must be managed in line with environmental licences.

Flow of waste from warehousing activities can be influenced by shipments in and out and decisions to intermittently designate large volumes of product/materials to waste.  Benzoil can assist businesses to avoid such wastes which can significantly reduce risk in the workplace and minimise expensive storage and disposal costs.

Specific to the transport and warehousing industry, we handle wastes including:

  • Mineral oils
  • Acids & alkalis
  • Organic chemicals
  • Non-toxic salts
  • Contaminated water
