Reducing Greenhouse Gases

Our Approach

Our greenhouse gas footprint and risk are small, but we can still produce positive impacts that directly align with cost efficiency and customer benefits. Our business requires management of a diverse and active delivery and set-up fleet and operation of yard equipment, from toters to forklifts.

Today, our fleet primarily runs on diesel fuel. We are working to change that. We have embraced innovation and have begun evolving our fleet toward lower and zero-emissions fuels. We are replacing older diesel trucks with vehicles that have more efficient engines and are exploring options for utilizing alternative fuel and electric-powered vehicles.

Our Actions

The incorporation of CNG trucks to our fleet has demonstrated great success and paved the way for our investigation into fleet electrification solutions.  We are eager to identify the right branch location and  vehicle type for a future pilot.  In addition, we continue to brainstorm on additional ways to reduce fuel emissions, such as reducing idling reduction and route optimization.

Although any greenhouse gas potential is minimal, our resource consumption is being  evaluated to ensure that we are identifying efficient consumption of resources including energy and water.  At this time, 100% of our electrical energy comes from the traditional grid; however, in conjunction with evaluation of energy usage we are exploring renewable energy options as well.

A Diverse Fleet Supporting the Business 

Delivery Trucks
We use a variety of heavy-duty tractor-trailer configurations to deliver and pick up our units at customer sites. Our delivery fleet consists of both company-owned and third-party trucks.

Service Vehicles 
We use crane-mounted trucks, heavy-duty box trucks, medium-duty pick-up trucks, and vans to provide customer set-up and maintenance services.

Yard Equipment
Our yard equipment is used to move and work on assets at our approximately 280 branch locations and additional drop lots. Equipment includes yard toters, forklifts, and scissor lifts.

In all instances, we optimize fleet vehicle usage to eliminate use of oversized or unnecessary equipment.
