Responsible Transportation Solutions
(September 2019) At Midland Transport, we are committed to the future and well-being of our environment. As our industry grows, creative problem solving is crucial to address environmental concerns and obstacles, including the industry’s carbon footprint.To ensure we are protecting our environment for future generations, we have invested in new vehicles, drag reduction devices and proper trip planning to help reduce our fleet’s carbon footprint.
Investing in New Vehicles
Our average company truck is three and a half years old. Investing in new trucks
allows us to continually serve our customers with superior service, while
protecting the environment. Continuous technology improvements in newer models
allow our vehicles to be more fuel-efficient and reduce CO2 emissions.
Investing in Drag Reduction Devices
Since 2011, drag reduction devices, including side skirts have been
installed on every new trailer introduced to our fleet. These drag reduction
devices allow our vehicles to operate at a higher fuel efficiency level and
reduce aerodynamic drag. Drag reduction devices help reduce fuel consumption by
Investing Time in Developing Trip Plans
Every movement we make has an impact on our customers and the environment.
That is why we ensure that our drivers’ routes are planned to guarantee maximum
fuel efficiency for every trip. Drivers’ routes are meticulously planned by our
planning and dispatch departments.
This strategy allows us to maximize our movements on the
road by organizing logistics ahead of time to increase fuel efficiency.
These initiatives have allowed us to become a certified
SmartWay partner. This partnership recognizes our commitment to the well-being
and future of the environment.
