(Thomas E.) Keller Trucking, an affiliate of Keller Logistics Group, is among the fewer than 10% of all SmartWay carriers operating fleets that meet efficiency standards to make the High Performer list. This marks the third year Keller Trucking has been recognized as a high performer.
Keller Trucking VP Jon Wolfrum states, “We are very focused on putting the most fuel-efficient equipment on the road as possible. This is a combination of utilizing proven technology along with continuing to invest in new equipment on a consistent basis. We also believe in coaching our drivers to perform at the highest level possible when it comes to fuel economy and incents them for high performance in this area. These things turn out to be an advantage to our company, our drivers, and the customers we are serving.”
High Performers for carbon consume less fuel for every mile traveled, and for every ton of freight moved. Each trip made moves heavier loads and more efficiently packed trailers while consuming thousands of gallons of fuel less than other carriers.
Productivity of this kind ends up saving trucking companies thousands of dollars in fuel costs while helping to reduce carbon emissions annually.
