We’re proud to announce that City Furniture once again ranked on The Green Fleet Awards list! This marks the fifth year in a row that we were recognized for our green delivery truck fleet.
The prestigious award using lengthy criteria to determine the winners, evaluating everything from the use of renewable and alternative energy sources, to plans for the future. Each year, the committee chooses just 50 fleets from across the country to honor. This year, we’re excited to announce that City Furniture ranked 31 on the list.
It’s all thanks to our use of compressed natural gas (CNG), which is a USA-produced fuel. Not only does this reduce reliance on foreign oil, but it reduces emissions by 45 percent. That’s the equivalent of taking 182 passenger cars off the road every year.
And as part of our 2040 Green Promise, we’re working toward a carbon neutral future with the addition of five Tesla semi-trucks to the fleet. The electric vehicles were ordered last year and are scheduled to arrive sometime in 2020. The Teslas will be used to transport shipments to our warehouses, further reducing our footprint while we grow and expand our company.
