Journey Freight™ is conscientious of the impact the transport industry can have on the environment. Transportation is a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions which are inducing climatic changes at a dangerously rapid rate. We are seeking partnerships with owner operators that are doing their part to promote environmental awareness such as regular mechanical maintenance of their fleet as well as with carriers that are looking to switch to Liquid Natural Gas (LNG). LNG is increasingly talked about and used as an alternate fuel source in commercial vehicles as it has the potential to be a cost efficient, sustainable energy source of the future. It is 25% cheaper and burns cleaner. As expert service providers, we must take our responsibility to protect all of nature’s elements very seriously and align ourselves with enterprises sharing the same core beliefs.

As our immediate contribution towards protecting the environment, Journey™ has decided to go paperless in the global fight for sustainability and invest into a customizable software. Our clients and staff can both benefit tremendously from our sustainability initiative as it will reduce much of our carbon footprint on the environment. Obviously, going paperless does not mean that there are no printed materials in the office. Rather, this means that we are very selective in what gets printed.

Consider some of these facts related to paper printing:

  • Organizations spend in labor costs (on average): $20 to file a document, $120 to find a misfiled document, and $220 to reproduce a lost document. (PricewaterhouseCoopers)
  • Of all documents, 7.5 percent get lost; 3 percent of the remainder get misfiled. (PricewaterhouseCoopers)
  • Professionals spend 5–15 percent of their time reading information, but up to 50 percent looking for it. (PricewaterhouseCoopers)
  • The average cost to process a single invoice manually is $24. (IOM)

As Journey Freight™ continues to grow, we strive to be at the forefront of the green initiative.
