Reducing Greenhouse Gases
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 replacing older diesel vehicles with vehicles that have more efficient engines and are exploring options for utilizing alternative fuel.
The incorporation of CNG trucks and electric service vans into our fleet has demonstrated great success. We continue to research additional ways to reduce fuel emissions, such as monitoring idling 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, The majority 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
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.
We use crane-mounted trucks, heavy-duty box trucks, medium-duty pick-up trucks, and vans to provide customer set-up and maintenance services.
Our yard equipment is used to move and work on assets at our approximately 240 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.
