SMARTFUSION Wins two awards in two weeks!
It was the Delivery Consolidation scheme and Electric Vehicle which captured the judges attention.

On 4th June 2015 Smartfusion won the “Best Environmental Initiative” at the Newcastle University Annual Environment Awards.

These awards recognise projects and initiatives that demonstrate commitment to reducing the University’s environmental impact and work towards achieving the University’s sustainability objectives. The winner was selected by Professor Tony Stevenson as chair of the University’s Environment and Sustainability Committee.

On 18th June 2015 SMARTFUSION picked up Outstanding Procurement Team, at the UK Times Higher Education Leadership and Management Awards (THELMA) for NewRail's initiative to reduce delivery vehicles on campus and cut its carbon footprint. The Smartfusion project sees deliveries redirected to an off-site consolidation centre and then distributed throughout the university using an all-electric vehicle.

The judges were impressed with the collaborative work that involved many parties to stop direct delivery to the campus site. “The benefits include cost savings to the university along with improvements to health and safety around the campus while protecting the environment using electric vehicles,” they said.
