There is no doubt about it, the transportation industry has a tremendously harmful impact on our planet. That is why we take a very proactive approach in outlining ways that we can reduce our carbon footprint and align ourselves with other organizations with the same objectives in mind. We deploy many initiatives to protect our environment including recycling of all waste from our shop and office, comprehensive driver training and governing tractor speeds just to name a few. Our entire fleet is CARB compliant with late model, fuel and energy efficient tractors and trailers to minimize our overall consumption as much as possible.
