REDUCING MILES & SAVING FUEL
Every mile reduced and every gallon saved inspires us to work even harder at fuel conservation.
After making scheduled store deliveries, our drivers made 48,651 trips to our suppliers on their way back to our warehouses. This represents 11% of all delivery trips to stores and has increased 2.5% over last year.
New engines: The engines in our new tractors allow 50,000 miles per oil change (up from 35,000 in 2014), which saves labor hours and reduces the amount of waste oil we recycle.
