(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 seven percent.

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.
