Biagi Bros New Natural Gas Regional Tractors
Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions by 20%
Some companies talk about being environmentally conscious or as it is said, “Going Green” and other companies make a mindful decision to make their operations green. Biagi Bros. is a company that has made the decision to Go Green at the ownership and management level and that green initiative just naturally trickles down throughout the company. The acquisition of natural gas powered, energy efficient regional tractors is the most recent of many environmental projects that Biagi Bros has been involved over the past few years.
The company has made a number of planned environmental initiatives including the move to recycled water, from previously using potable water at its Napa Valley Distribution Center for its landscape irrigation. Read the full article here.
Significantly the Biagi Bros Van Nuys terminal now features 15 new clean diesel tractors that actually leave cleaner air in their wake. You can read more about that project here.
In 2013 all of the Biagi warehouses (over 3.5 million square feet of food grade warehouse facilities) began the process of changing their lighting from metal-halide to newer motion-sensor fluorescent lights that expend 70% less energy. In 2013 Biagi also purchased new low emission Peterbilt tractors replacing some of the older units in the California fleet. These units were appropriately named “Green Machines” and you can read more about them here.
Most recently Biagi Bros. subsidiary Arco Logistics, providers of logistics (3PL) and supply chain management services to companies across the USA has purchased the ultra-safe 100% natural gas powered Freightliner tractor. These fuel efficient tractors are for their Anheuser-Busch “Seed To Sip” operations in St Louis MO. According to Freightliner the greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) are reduced with these CNG natural gas Cummins engines by a whopping 20% over equivalent diesel fueled units. ( Freightliner FAQ )
With the purchase of these new energy efficient GHG reducing tractors Biagi Bros is continuing to do its part to help create a better environment for us all.
