“Our partnership with Optimize for this year’s tournament will enable us to significantly impact our carbon footprint from the event,” said John Fryer, Director at Six Degrees Transport. “We are making over 20,000 trips during the course of the tournament, involving the transportation of players, staff, coaches and visitors shared between 180 vehicles. Optimize’s unique offering ensures the transport and operational delivery process will be carried out seamlessly and efficiently by reducing mileage and CO2 emissions.”
“We are delighted to join forces with Six Degrees Transport, to deliver an optimised transport solution on behalf of the All-England Lawn Tennis Club for this year’s Wimbledon tournament,” explained Natalie Hughes, Director of Partnerships and Corporate Accounts, Optimize. “With climate change and Net Zero at an all-time high on the global agenda, we recognise businesses and organisations need to actively think about how best to carry out operations in the most environmentally friendly and carbon neutral way possible.”
Optimize specialises in the operational transformation of fleets by harnessing cutting-edge algorithms and artificial intelligence to deliver environmental and efficiency improvements.
