Because sustainability really matters!

Mission Despatch are environmentally friendly couriers. We are 100% committed to ensuring we operate all aspects of our business with the environment at the forefront of our mind. In fact, 93% of our entire courier fleet consists of ULEZ compliant vehicles, and we are committed to reaching 100% by the end of 2019.

As part of our commitment to help reduce air pollution in our Capital we utilise advanced technology to ensure best/fastest route optimisation to reduce mileage. Furthermore our same day courier fleet includes a range of battery & hybrid operated vehicles which are consistently upgraded to meet required modern emission standards. In addition we continually strive to work with partners who carry the same values and commitment to the environment as we do.

However, it’s not just environmentally friendly couriers and vehicles that matter. In addition we have operated a virtually paperless office since 2010, thus providing our clients with electronic proof of deliveries and paperless billing. Working with our clients, we will continually strive to maintain and improve sustainability. Our fulfilment centre in Milton Keynes is also working towards abolishing the use of single use plastics for packaging materials, and strongly promotes the use of recyclable materials when and wherever possible. Furthermore we openly encourage clients to pay a 5% environmental levy on all packaging supplies provided by us, with all proceeds being donated to environmental charities.

London’s capital is unfortunately one of the most polluted in the world. What we do as a business is a mere drop in the ocean towards protecting our environment and reducing the ever increasing threat of global warming. Fortunately, although not soon enough, industry is waking up to the importance of sustainable trading, and these combined efforts, we hope, will go a long way to protecting our future.
