3 Ways TP Trucking Strives to Stay Environmentally Friendly

3 ways tp trucking

1. Investing in New, Fuel-Efficient Trucks

At TP Trucking, we don't have a single truck in our fleet that is more than 5 years old. By keeping our vehicles up to date we can maintain fuel efficiency while on the road. In the last several years our trucks’ average miles per gallon has increased by 3mpg.

Investing in newer equipment not only burns less fuel but also provides a better quality of life for our drivers.

2. Innovative Designs Reduce Drag

To help increase aerodynamics, our trucks are customized with upgrades such as skirts for under the trailers and tails on the backs of the vans. We are experimenting with wheel covers on a select number of vehicles to limit drag as well. If successful, we will look into further investment for all of our trucks.

The savings on these types of investments may seem small, but they have incremental benefits to the environment as well as to our bottom line.

3. Bunk Heaters Eliminate Idling Trucks

In the past, drivers would keep their trucks running the entire night in order to stay warm while they slept. With the addition of battery-powered bunk heaters, drivers can now turn off their truck during the night and remain comfortable. Because of this feature, the trucks burn through much less fuel than in years past.

TP Trucking is committed to an environmentally friendly operation. We create a better quality of life for our drivers while also doing our part to preserve a better world for future generations.
