Thank you Food Logistics Magazine for recognizing our comittment to sustainability. It's truly an honor to be named a 2021 Top Green Provider.
We prioritize drivers with CARB certifications, and reduce spoilage for our Food and Beverage and CPG customers by ensuring that our drivers have the proper equipment, including pre-cooled reefer trailers, to maintain the right temperature for perishables and other sensitive items. Because we are able to close loops and reduce deadhead miles, our ability to deliver on-time with these temperature and time-sensitive products also helps reduce waste. The RPM Drive app, that drivers use, allows RPM more visibility into load managing and gives us the ability to help close the loops for drivers—reload them out of the same location or facility that they delivered to or on their way back to their point of origin.
Over the next five years, RPM is working on initiatives to prioritize carriers who are making an environmentally conscious decision on what trucks to buy and bring into their fleet. We have been attending several virtual conferences throughout the year to explore better ways to use energy and reduce the carbon emissions on the road.
