XTL’s green efforts recognized by Transport Canada

MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — By making a firm commitment to green transportation standards, XTL Transport was the recipient of the 2008 SCL Green Supply Chain Award from Transport Canada.

The award, which is issued by Supply Chain and Logistics Association Canada (SCL), is sponsored by Transport Canada and was presented in May 2008.

"This award recognizes the environmentally friendly business practices of XTL Transport," said Lawrence Cannon, Minister of Transport, Infrastructure and Communities. "The company sets an excellent example for others in the transportation industry by clearly demonstrating ways to reduce the environmental impact of operations in this sector."

A high percentage of XTL’s tractor engines meet the latest emissions standards. In addition, the company’s fleet renewal program ensures that the average age of equipment is less than two years and no tractor is more than four years old.

Most of its fleet is equipped with auxiliary power units that virtually eliminate the need to idle engines. XTL has also implemented a driver training program to increase efficiency and achieve maximum fuel economy.

XTL Transport is a truckload provider servicing many industries such as consumer commodities, grocery, retail, chemical, pharmaceutical, automotive, packaging, and pulp and paper in Quebec, Ontario, B.C., Alberta and parts of the U.S.
