An inside look at PGT Trucking’s partnership with Locomation
Shippers are increasingly motivated by consumer-driven corporate sustainability goals. But to truly tackle Scope 3 emissions — those that occur beyond their own four walls — shippers must find carriers and transportation partners that are pursuing their own green initiatives and strategic partnerships.
In June, two Pittsburgh-based companies — flatbed carrier PGT Trucking and autonomous trucking platform Locomation — announced one such partnership. They outlined that over the next eight years, Locomation’s two-truck convoy and safety staff would help PGT Trucking execute more efficient freight movements and reduce operating costs per mile by 30%, including a reduction in fuel expenses by 8%, reducing CO2 emissions by more than 60 metric tons per tractor per year.
