Sustainability

We take on a leading role in green logistics by implementing innovative sustainability strategies across our supply chain.

We’re always looking for new ways to reduce waste output and lower resource consumption across our network of facilities. Here are just a few ways we’re working to lower our environmental impact:

Green trucks

We are converting local drayage and delivery fleets to clean forms of power. Back in 2010, we completed the conversion of our LA fleet to meet the stringent clean air standards for ports in the state of California.

SmartWay certification

We operate SmartWay certified fleets, an EPA-sponsored program that helps carriers to improve fuel efficiency through strategies such as idle reduction, improved aerodynamics, weight reduction, low-rolling resistance tires. It also uses driving practices such as speed control, progressive shifting and optimal gearing to boosts fuel efficiency and reduce consumption.

Future plans to use 6.5 million sq ft of warehouse roof for solar energy

Renewable energy

We’re currently testing solar power arrays in our NJ operations, with plans to expand the program to take advantage of 6.5 million square feet of warehouse roof available for solar installation across our 18 facilities. This is a first step toward developing zero carbon footprint warehouse operations nationwide.

Carbon footprint reduction

Our operations use recycling, sustainable packaging, and automatic lighting solutions to reduce waste and energy usage. In Los Angeles, our off-peak operations for LA port drayage reduce wait time and idle time for our trucks, significantly reducing carbon emissions. These local efforts, combined with our national initiatives above, make up our “GatewayGreen” project.
