Stevens Transport Environmental Initiatives

Stevens Transport continues to engage in energy-saving and sustainability initiatives to enforce its environmental focus.  Clean idle engines, auxiliary power units (APUs), energy-efficient refrigeration units, aerodynamic trailer skirts, fuel efficient tires, and continuous driver education has established Stevens Transport as an industry leader in clean environmental practices.  Overall, Stevens’ sustainability efforts have reduced fuel consumption in 2,000 power units and 3,000 refrigerated trailers by millions of gallons while setting the standard for greenhouse gas reduction.

Many of the technologies that Stevens Transport has adopted provide limitless environmental benefits:

  • Meticulously maintained, top of the line Power Units with clean idle engines maximize fuel efficiency and reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions
  • Thermo King TriPac Auxiliary Power Units (APU’s) reduce unnecessary fuel consumption, extend truck engine maintenaince intervals, reduce wear on truck engine, and comply with anti-idle laws
  • Energy-efficient Trailer Refrigeration Units by Thermo King reduce excessive fuel consumption
  • Aerodynamic trailer skirts reduce drag and increase MPG performance

  • Continuous driver training programs educate our fleet daily over the road or in classroom workshops
  • OptiStop guides drivers to the most cost effective fuel stations in proximity by offering pre-established fuel prices to improve the bottom line
  • Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) promotes a paper-free work environment by offering some of the quickest communication and information systems available
  • Fuel efficient tires and retreading of worn tires
  • Refurbished and recycled refrigeration units, oil and scrap metals

Partnership with EPA SmartWay

Stevens Transport has partnered with the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a SmartWay affiliate to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, control air pollution, and improve fuel efficiency for sustainability.  “The SmartWay affiliation signifies a partnership among government, business and consumers to protect our environment, reduce fuel consumption, and improve our air quality for future generations.”
