ENVIRONMENTAL INITIATIVES
As a transportation provider, we are dedicated to reducing our environmental impact through a wide range of "Green" initiatives.

Hybrid & Flex Fuel Vehicles
We currently operate one hybrid vehicle and plan to add more to our fleet in the future. In addition, all newer vehicles in our fleet are flexible fuel vehicles (FFV's), designed to run on gasoline or a blend of up to 85% ethanol (E85).

Recycling
Our Fleet Maintenance Department recycles all used motor oil and antifreeze through a certified vendor. In addition, our battery exchange program ensures that old batteries are dismantled and recycled in accordance with state and federal laws.

Efficient Routing
Advanced GPS technology installed throughout our fleet allows us to carefully analyze route efficiencies. This has resulted in reduced overall fuel consumption and longer service life for our vehicles.
