WOODBRIDGE, Ont. -Bison Transport was awarded the 2010 Supply Chain and Logistics (SCL) Green Supply Chain Award May 5 at the organization’s annual supply chain and logistics conference.
Don Streuber, president and CEO of Bison Transport, was on-hand to receive the award.
The company was selected because of its ongoing commitment to reducing its CO2 and NOx emissions and in recognition of its continued efforts to improve the environmental performance of its freight operations, SCL announced.
“As one of Canada’s largest transportation companies, we have a responsibility to our customers, and to the communities in which we operate when it comes to delivering eco-friendly transportation solutions” said Streuber. “We do this by combining state of the art technology with computer based training to ensure that our fleet and our drivers are the most fuel-efficient on the road.”
Among other initiatives, Bison runs fuel-efficient tires, transmissions and engines, equips trailers with side fairings and adds auxiliary power units to tractors. Bison also operates long combination vehicles (LCVs) wherever possible to reduce emissions by as much as 40%, the company claims.
