Working Together to Build a More Sustainable Supply Chain
We regularly see opportunities to make a positive impact to our customers’ supply chain carbon footprint. All too often the focus is on electric vehicles. And while this is an important piece, there are many options that can make a more immediate, but lasting impact. Here are just a few ways KAG can help you make a substantial impact on your carbon footprint.
Route Optimization – Efficiency drives sustainability. Leading-edge technology can strategically plan routes to minimize empty miles and optimize resource utilization. This ultimately enhances supply chain efficiency, reduces costs, and contributes to a more sustainable transportation network.
Tank Washing Efficiency – Adopting innovative tank washing technologies and eco-friendly practices help to minimize waste. A pioneer of best-in-class trailer cleaning and product integrity processes, KAG’s tank wash facilities boast state-of-the-art solutions ensuring optimal performance and minimal environmental impact.
Idle Time Reduction – Idle time significantly impacts fuel consumption and emissions. Technology platforms can be designed to monitor and manage idle time effectively, and implementing best practices to reduce engine idling saves costs and contributes to a greener planet.
Fleet Management – Ensure your mode of choice meets the needs of your business without excess capacity. The ability to pivot to a different mode can prevent unnecessary fuel consumption and better align operations with sustainability goals.
