Eddie Stobart start Logs Direct firewood delivery throughout the UK
We reckon that when world-famous hauliers Eddie Stobart named their first truck ‘Twiggy’ they must have known one day they would be signing up to distribute our firewood!
Logs Direct has just started using these leading hauliers for some of our National distribution work.
From Lands End to John O’Groats the world famous trucks will be making regional deliveries of kiln dried wood, wood pellets, seasoned hardwood and softwood fuels to some of our commercial and domestic customers.
Eddie Stobart is the leading company in the UK for transport and logistics, with more than 2,250 trucks criss-crossing the country every day. In fact, an Eddie Stobart vehicle, with its
distinctive green and red livery, is passed on average every 4.5 minutes when driving on the country’s major roads.
The world famous brand is followed by more than 25,000 members of the Stobart Club, dedicated fans who spend their time spotting the iconic trucks and collecting the individual
girls’ names on each and every one of them.
Nation-wide firewood distribution is a good fit for two British companies which are both doing their bit to look after the environment. Logs Direct, based in North Lancashire, are one of the leading suppliers of carbon neutral fuels in the UK.
Burning wood fuel in the form of wood burner logs is far more environmentally friendly than burning other fossil fuels such as oil, coal and gas which release high levels of carbon dioxide
into the atmosphere.
We fire our kilns with renewable biomass fuels which reduce our impact on the environment. Furthermore because we are a direct supplier of fire logs and manage our own processing, kiln drying and warehousing, we are cutting out the middle man and reducing our transport costs – a saving we pass on to you.
Eddie Stobart has invested heavily in biomass fuels to make the transport industry more sustainable. They have also introduced modal shift operations which reduces carbon emissions
by using rail, sea and air transport in addition to the road to make their journeys as environmentally-friendly as possible.
As winter approaches, we can ensure that wherever you are in the UK, we can keep your homes warm and cosy throughout the coldest season. We offer free regional delivery of kiln dried logs and other high quality products. This commitment to the environment and to you our customers means that we can satisfy the growing demand for our products, both now and in the future.
