ARAMARK supply chain deal brings environmental benefits

An innovative supply and distribution partnership with Chef Direct has allowed food service and facilities management specialist ARAMARK to reduce deliveries by 60%.

Our clients quite rightly want a service which is efficient, reliable and environmentally friendly. Our innovative and ground-breaking partnership with Chef Direct is proving to be all these.

Logistics Director, ARAMARK
Chef Direct's multi-temperature vehicles mean that all products can be transported together, leading to a 60% reduction in deliveries and at least 50% fewer road miles. 

Additionally, independent analysis by Carbon Neutral confirmed that ARAMARK are on track for a 33% reduction in CO2 emissions (compared with emissions before the partnership began).

Micro-analysis of selected clients found that efficiency improvements could be even greater in some cases - deliveries to one group of higher education clients were down by an average of 75%, saving a combined total of almost 254,000 road miles per year.
