Innovative is committed to operating an efficient and environmentally sensitive delivery system. Our fleet of over 50 trucks are replaced every 5 years and are an average age of 2 years, ensuring we have a fleet of highly efficient vehicles that take advantage of current technology.
As part of our commitment to reducing greenhouse gases and improving fuel efficiency, Innovative has invested in a mixture of dock trucks, box trucks, high profile vans and smaller city vans. This mixed fleet allows us to match the most efficient vehicle for each route/purpose. This effort has improved our fuel efficiency by 300% in recent years.
Route planning and driver training are another important component of our commitment to reducing impact on the environment. We actively manage delivery routes to ensure each route originates from a location that is most fuel efficient, using routing software and strategies to manage this process. We routinely track and share average order size with our customers and work with them to train their end users on more efficient ordering practices, which removes cost from the entire supply chain and reduces environmental impact.
