DRIVING TRANSPORTATION EFFICIENCY
Making a Mark
We Make the Most Out of Every Mile
With the industry's largest company-owned fleet, Advanced Drainage Systems provides a tremendous service to its customers. We are a proud partner of SmartWay, an EPA program to help companies advance supply chain sustainability by measuring, benchmarking and improving freight transportation efficiency. We’re continuously optimizing our vehicle use, fleet routes and shipping methods, so we can meet our efficiency goals. How do we measure performance? Through payload efficiency (pounds per mile), miles per gallon and on-time deliveries.
Our fleet is comprised of drop- side trailers, tractor trailers, box trucks and flat beds. We choose the best trailer for the job, depending on products, delivery site and distance. Regardless of job location, our fleet is capable of delivering what the customer needs, when they need it.
We're looking for ways to maximize our effective shipping radius so we can reduce our empty miles - and our carbon footprint.
