Sustainability Initiatives

Time Definite’s commitment to sustaining and enhancing the standard of living goes beyond freight we move and manage. It includes a promise to conduct our business with the utmost respect for the world around us; to work in a way that meets the needs of the present without compromising future generations.

Some call it sustainability, we call it good business. Time Definite has a strong stance of business in an environmentally responsible manner, and is investing in verified technologies contributing to a more sustainable future. We’re reducing greenhouse gas emissions, improving fuel efficiency, and upgrading the energy efficiency of our facilities to reduce our carbon footprint.

  • Route optimization software to ensure quickest and most fuel efficient route
  • 2012 – 2016 model fleet
  • 5-minute Engine Idle Limiter
  • Idle Free Electric Auxiliary Power Unit (APU)
  • Aerodynamic trailer side skirts designed to smooth air flow and reduce cross-flow along and below the side edges of trailers (at least 4% fuel savings)

 

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s SmartWay Transport Partnership (a voluntary collaboration between the EPA and the freight industry to increase energy efficiency while striving to reduce greenhouse gases and air pollution) recognizes Time Definite’s commitment to the environment.
