The Engines That Can
We are working to make every component of our trucks more earth-friendly, from transport temperature control to energy efficiency to reduced emissions.
Our newest tractors are equipped with diesel engines that are Clean Idle Certified and employ newly-developed Exhaust Particulate Filters. The result? Improved fuel economy, fewer oil changes and lower emissions.
We're testing new trailer refrigeration units with hybrid technology that reduces emissions and fuel consumption through enhanced idle reduction and smart cycle controls.
And we make sure that precious energy is only used in actual transport: Drivers shut down at all stops, and we coordinate loading shifts to reduce overall engine run times.
We're also doing little things that equal big savings, such as keeping tires at optimal air pressure. And we will keep looking for new technology that can make our green truck initiatives go even further.
