Energy is a hot topic at the moment. It’s not just green energy that business owners are concerned about, but about the energy of their employees and the fuel that powers their logistics. This last one is a very interesting topic because it ties into the first and the second. Cargo ships, trucks, and industrial vehicles all need to become more efficient, they need to also be comfortable and usable for employees. But, these three types of fuel are what we’re going to focus on in more detail as each is changing, and this could have an impact on your company and how you work.
Solar coming to the city?
For a long time to come, governments are starting to force businesses to be powered by green energy. It’s quite amazing how aggressive new policies are, that are demanding that companies make the shift over to green energy by 2025 or 2030. This seems possible nowadays because, thanks to solar farms, solar energy is able to power cities and businesses. Solar farms are where large rotating solar panels are placed in an unused field that a farmer rents out. These solar panels then transport their energy to a storage unit which then transfers this power to a local storage unit in the city. And hence, you have solar energy acting as if it were conventional fossil fuel energy in the way it is transported, stored and used.
The new manpower
Employees have to be fueled and ready to take on tough challenges. But, there have to be two types of fuel, mental and physical. The pandemic has changed the way employees work and also, how they view their work. It’s up to employers to provide stimulating activities outside of work now. This could be gym memberships, tickets to go see local shows, festivals and sometimes even things like spa vouchers. Physically, employees want healthier options for their diet at work. So if you provide catering for employees, healthy salads, vegan options, low-carb and healthy fast food options are vital.
Fueling the line
Fuel for your fleet is also vital. Although eventually, every single fleet vehicle will have to become battery-powered, at the moment, governments want you to buy and use efficient red diesel. This is the fuel industrial and commercial vehicles often use. You can buy red diesel drums and store your fuel at your depot where vehicles are stored, parked and maintained. This will save you time from having to go to a truck stop or specialist station. They can transport the drums to you within the next day of order which is great if you are running low and need fuel replacement urgently. Not to mention, you get a dedicated team just for your order.
These 3 types of fuel power your business towards success. Each of them has their own role to play and you need to stay on top of them to be a forward-looking brand both in action and ethos.
