FORT SMITH, Ark., Aug. 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ABF Freightsm is proud to be recognized by Inbound Logistics magazine as a "Green 75 Supply Chain Partner" for the fifth consecutive year.
"In a special 'Lean and Green' issue of Inbound Logistics, we are profiling ABF Freight in our G75 special section—the 75 leading companies our readers can turn to when seeking green supply chain management and logistics partners," said Felecia Stratton, editor. "IL editors have determined the 2014 honorees are truly 'walking the walk' when it comes to commitment to supply chain sustainability."
ABF Freight has initiated several programs as part of its ongoing commitment to sustainability. Those include: reducing fuel consumption and enhancing operational efficiency through best practices that include a strictly followed equipment preventative maintenance program and a limited maximum speed limit of 62 mph; engine idle shutdown programming to prevent unattended idling in yard tractors as well as road and city tractors; extensive use of retreaded tires to reduce the number of tire casings entering landfills as well as the amount of oil used for producing new tires; and installing aerodynamic aids on select pieces of equipment, thus reducing wind resistance for improved fuel economy.
