Bison Transport is pleased to offer you the ability to estimate Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions for the shipment of your freight through our easy to use Greenhouse Gas Calculator.
As one of Canada's largest transportation companies, Bison Transport understands that we have a large responsibility to our customers and society as a whole when it comes to delivering environmentally conscious transportation solutions. We have invested large amounts of time and energy to become an industry leader when it comes to reducing the amount of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) we emit into the atmosphere for every mile we travel. We have been able to accomplish this by:
Effective Equipment Purchasing: We purchase the most advanced equipment that employs multiple fuel saving devices.
Effective Policy: Our Company has implemented both speed limits and idle time expectations in order to improve our fuel efficiency.
Training and Education: We use state of the art simulation technology and computer based training to ensure our Drivers are the most fuel efficient Drivers on the road.
Multi-modal Transportation: We have developed an intricate transportation network that allows us to move freight via Long Combination Vehicles (LCV) and rail, both of which have a huge impact on GHG reduction.
The effective blend of these strategies and policies has been recognized as 'best in class' four times over the past decade:
Bison Transport is an active member of Natural Resources Canada's FleetSmart program and the United States Environmental Protection Agency's SmartWay Transport Partnership. Both programs have goals and mandate that are closely aligned with Bison Transport's.
Long Combination Vehicles (LCVs) offer one of the most environmentally conscious means of moving freight. In fact, utilizing LCVs reduces the amount of fuel consumed by 482 litres and the amount of GHGs emitted into the atmosphere by 1311 kilograms for every 1000 miles traveled.
