Protect Your Assets: Save Natural Resources


We at ACQSYS Supply Chain Solutions are the UK’s only national recovery service for lost and stolen roll cages, totes, trays and magnums.  ACQSYS started life as a simple commercial response to problem losses in the last mile supply chain and, while returning lost equipment to the original owner or supply chain makes sense economically, it soon became clear the work we do is also of direct benefit to the environment.  


Transit equipment goes missing for many reasons, but the major causes of loss are:


Every year we repatriate thousands of tonnes of steel and plastic to the rightful owners and every asset we rescue is another that doesn’t have to be manufactured, saving precious natural resources and reducing energy use and emissions.


ACQSYS works to break the current linear economic model of “Take, Make, Dispose” by interrupting that flow and introducing the circular model of “Reuse, Reduce, Recycle”.  Through our actions, we intercept assets before the Dispose phase and, subsequently, reduce the Take and Make activities.  Every asset you have to replace is adding to the disposal phase and our goal is to break that destructive pattern, replacing it with a circular cycle where the asset isn’t lost in the first place.


We recover transit assets for over forty companies in the UK and they are not only saving money on replacements, they are also helping develop the circular economy and the drive towards profitable sustainability.  If you believe sustainability is a goal worth striving for, we would like to talk to you about your company’s role in this initiative.


I’m sure your operations teams are doing their best to hold onto the transit assets they use for deliveries, but we know that your equipment is being lost, misused and scrapped every day. Working with ACQSYS you can reduce your losses, save money on replacements and take another step towards reducing the depletion of our natural resources.
