Partnership with ports
We work with every major port in the U.S. daily, particularly ports that follow higher sustainability standards, with a focus on reducing port congestion and carrier dwell time, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve fuel savings.
Partnership with warehouses
Our partnerships across the country help us reduce congestion and carrier dwell time at warehouses, minimizing the long-haul movements from ports and return of empties, the time trucks stay in idle mode and greenhouse gas emissions.
Partnership with green fleet carriers
We have established partnerships with various green carriers covering the U.S. domestic market that have large fleets of natural gas and hydrogen fuel cell trucks.
Partnership with academia
We have established research partnerships with the MIT Center for Transportation and Logistics and Georgia Tech to evaluate novel ways to optimize efficiency and driver utilization in transportation logistics.
DIVERSITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION
We recognize the value each employee brings to our business. Each employee brings new experiences, backgrounds, skillsets and perspectives to our organization. Our DEI strategy focuses on increasing diversity, improving employee engagement and providing our employees with what they need to succeed in their careers.
Our goal is to make a tangible impact across the supply chain. Because of our integrated and collaborative approach, we continue to work with minority, women and veteran-owned carriers and small shippers to integrate them into our network and develop tools and solutions that enable them to grow their business sustainably.
We are committed to contributing to the communities where we live and work. We partner with organizations that help us promote the development of equitable, healthier and resilient communities.
We are committed to creating a more sustainable world, by giving back and acting responsibly in the communities where we live and work. We are proud of the progress we have made in our environmental performance and the leadership we have demonstrated within our industry, realizing this is an ongoing process with much more to accomplish.
