Merchandise transportation represents a significant part of our environmental footprint. Although we do not own our fleet of trucks, we employ several strategies to make product transportation more sustainable.

  • We ship more than 25 percent of our products by rail, which is less polluting than standard ground transportation.
  • Over 75 percent of our transportation partners participate in the SmartWay Transport Partnership, a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency program that improves fuel efficiency and reduces air pollution.
  • We combine and optimize truck loads between distribution points to have fewer trucks on the road.
  • We also adjust store deliveries on a day-to-day basis to minimize the number of miles driven.

All of these approaches help us reduce air pollution, limit greenhouse gas emissions, and achieve significant cost savings.
