New barge demonstrates continued investment in waterways

Exol Lubricants has recently added a new barge, “Exol Pride,” to the North East Waterways, which will transport raw materials from Hull to its bulk blending plant in Rotherham.

Exol has been a long term user of the waterways, leading the oil and lubricants market by using an environmentally friendly option while transporting large loads. The company has been commended for its reduction in carbon footprint and has even featured in ITV’sBarging about Britain, hosted by John Sergeant.

Steve Dunn, Exol Lubricants sales director, said: “Exol Pride is part of our strategy in aligning the Exol brand with the company’s philosophy of supplying customers with the highest quality product, backed up by market leading support and service.”

Where road travel is essential, Exol maintains one of the most economical fleets on UK roads, comprising a mix of dual-purpose vehicles and large tanker trucks to transport both bulk and packaged Exol products to customers across a variety of sectors including agricultural, automotive, industrial, marine and rail.

Both Exol’s bulk blending plant in Rotherham, South Yorkshire and Head Office in Wednesbury, West Midlands are ISO-14001 accredited having successfully implemented an effective ‘Integrated Management System’, which focuses on reducing, reusing and recycling waste, as well as using energy efficiently.
