Why is so much air transported at the cost of the transport companies?

Environmental Awareness

When customers use they get three benefits over any other delivery service. Firstly, they save up to 85 per cent of the cost of delivery. Secondly, they can see how highly rated the delivery service is, allowing them to make a far better informed decision than other methods. Thirdly, the process is incredibly easy to use thanks to our commitment to usability, and finally, they are saving on CO2 emissions.

Anyvan has many services included namely man and van and also a specific courier services option.  Among the courier services longer journeys are often the case with larger savings of C02.

In getting these bonuses, we are offering the customer a no-risk option to become environmentally cleaner in their day-to-day lives. We feel this kind of benefit is essential to get everyone in the country working toward a greener future.

To date, ANYVAN has saved over 2,000,000 miles which equates to 1,180,000 kg C02.  With the rise of our delivery auction concept, we envisage this figure being close to 10,000,000 miles with 18 months – the equivalent to the moon and back 10 times or around the world 384 times!
On a serious note, 50% of all delivery vehicles, small and large Lorries, travel half full.  This is a staggering figure coupled with the fact that 25% of all vehicles travel totally empty.  Why is so much air transported at the cost of the transport companies?  Within the UK, there was no such platform for transport companies to utilize empty van space until the inception of such websites which have revolutionized transportation around Europe.

Don’t hire a man or rent a van to move it – ANYVAN it and save the planet!
