As a B Corp accredited business, we’re committed to improving our environmental impact in an honest, transparent way. We’ll never tell you that moving wine around the world is an ultra-sustainable activity (at least not until carbon-free flights and shipping becomes a reality!) but we are doing what we can to affect local transport emissions.
We invested in an eBike earlier this year, but we’ve now opted to work with St Austell-based Hoffmann Haulage 2 days a week for a large percentage of our Cornwall deliveries. Their electric van will deliver to your door, leaving you with great wines to enjoy and the satisfaction of doing your bit for the environment.
We asked Andre, founder of Hoffmann Haulage, a few questions about why he set up the business and his vision for the future.
What is your vision for Hoffmann Haulage?
As a start up we don’t need to replace a fleet or depot on the way to a net zero future. We can take all actions available to have the least environmental impact, actively creating a better future for following generations. We always look into the best possible solutions that are already on the market.
