"South Beds District Council (SBDC) had an innovative efficiency saving from the Handy Van Team where traditionally they collected obsolete materials and took them to a disposal area, where the supplier charged each van a cost based on the weight at the weighbridge. The Team negotiated a deal where SBDC would fit 3 vehicles on the weighbridge and therefore reduced the cost by 1/3.
This has lead to efficiency savings for the Council which has exceeded £10,000 per year."
Thanks for this example.
