The Logistics Alliance™ Commitment to the Environment
Our Commitment to Reducing our Environmental Footprint
At Logistics Alliance we continue to align with carriers who continually implement the newest 'green' technology and that foster a work environment which respects our commitment to the environment.
Some examples of this are:
Using intermodal service to reduce the number of trailers moving over the road.
Supporting carriers that use speed limiters to reduce the amount of fuel consumed and C02 emitted.
Ensure carriers have routine maintenance of all equipment to ensure maximum efficiency.
We continue to look for carriers that introduce the latest technologies that improve fuel consumption.
Our focus and processes ensure we continue to reduce loads by:
Using logistics loading equipment that maximizes trailer space utilization. Loading the trailers logistically increases the total available space by 40%.
Using routing technology that minimizes time and km’s on the road. To date we have taken over 6.6 million kilometers annually off the road within our client and customers transportation networks.
Logistics Alliance has helped reduce CO2 emissions by 7,169 tonnes annually.
