Community Involvement

 

Sponsorships

Excel Transportation Inc. plays an active role in our local community. Our focus is supporting children and our employees.

Annually, we sponsor a Prince George youth soccer team and donate flower baskets to the By Pass Adopt a Basket as part of our city's beautification initiative. Excel employees are also proud to sponsor a family through the Salvation Army Adopt-A-Family program during the holiday season.

Green Initiatives

Excel Transportation takes the phrase "environmentally friendly" very seriously. We take steps to reduce our carbon footprint by:

  • Using tractors that are equipped with smaller engines with less horsepower than a standard tractor leading to better efficiencies and fuel savings of up to 8 per cent.
  • Governing the engines to prevent our tractors from going over 102 kilometers an hour which leads to better fuel economy. 
  • Reducing idle time, Idling is a very wasteful and unsustainable activity
  • Re-treading tires which allows for up to 800,000 kilometers rather than just the normal 200,000.
  • The Tire Stewardship Program which recycles all used tires
  • Regular scheduled vehicle maintenance
  • Recycling used oil in our CSA approved oil furnace to heat our shop
  • Introducing wide based tires to the fleet for greater fuel efficiency, and lower maintenance costs.
  • Using Environmentally friendly parts cleaners in the shop
  • Disposing of used anti-freeze and filters by an approved depot.
  • Recycling all used and scrap steel and aluminum

Our administration team also recognizes their role in protecting the environment, by utilizing state-of-the-art technology, and using "green" business practices minimizing our impact on the environment. Our employees are committed to environmental sustainability and exercise waste reduction and recycling practices throughout the operation.
