Green Fleet Systems (GFS) is an established transportation company serving the carious business sectors that use the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles currently to ship and receive containerized cargo. We offer an array of services, with focused expertise in harbor drayage – the process of transporting containers from the ports to various rail and distribution centers throughout Southern California.
Our number one objective is to build long-term relationships with our customers. We start by listening to and understanding what transportation challenges our customer face, and then we rely on years of knowledge and experience to provide flexible, efficient solutions to meet our customers’ needs. We also ensure our drivers are trained in defensive driving techniques and general information about safe highway operations in order to provide our customers with accident-free service.
As the name implies, Green Fleet Systems is committed to being one of the first “green” trucking companies operating clean burning, environmentally friendly fuel trucks. The need to reduce pollution from outdated diesel fuel vehicle is one of the most important environmental issues facing the drayage business today, and we are proud to have the opportunity to participate in one of the most innovative efforts to clean up the air quality in and around port drayage.
Green Fleet employees are active in many industry organizations to insure we stay in touch with current and future issues and innovations affecting the Logistics Supply Chain, including but not limited to Harbor Truckers Association (HTA), Harbor Transportation Club (HTC), Los Angeles Transportation Club (LATC), and Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP). Green Fleet is also part of the Clean Truck Coalition, LLC. This group of 10 family-owned licensed motor carriers was formed in 2008 as a direct result of the ports’ of Los Angeles and Long Beach Clean Air Action Plan and Clean Truck Programs. Taking the lead in improving air quality at the San Pedro Bay Ports and beyond, the Clean Truck Coalition created a partnership and “pooling agreement” that required its members to share information to better utilize their collective truck fleets. Such measures included operating more vehicles at night to reduce traffic congestion and sharing equipment to reduce container-less truck trips back to the ports. The CTC also invested $109 million in new equipment, including nearly 1,000 new diesel and liquefied natural gas trucks, which represent about 11 percent of all new trucks at the San Pedro Bay Port complex.
GFS has been selected by Volvo-Mack to test their next alternative fuel tractor. We look forward to this innovation in green trucking technology.
Our goal is to continue to add more alternative fuel vehicles to our fleet and expand our model into new markets.
