Planet Aviation Group’s environmental policy calls for meeting or exceeding environmental regulations, maximizing fuel efficiency and monitoring and guarding against accidents, emissions and avoidable pollution.
Better fuel economy, better routes and higher payloads together have greatly reduced our fuel consumption per ton of freight moved while at the same time provide our customers with improved service.
Planet Aviation Group has invested in the industry’s best equipment. More than 80% of our trucks are less than 5 years old. These newer, more efficient tractors and ultra-efficient diesel engines have dramatically improved fuel economy and reduced air emissions.
We have invested in the most efficient refrigerated units to achieve the industry’s lowest energy consumption and we are phasing out propane in favor of cleaner, more efficient electric forklifts.
Planet Aviation Group has a long history of operating safely and responsibly in the sensitive and challenging lands, air, and waters of Alaska, the Pacific Northwest, and everywhere that we operate.
Small changes at the workplace can add up to big savings for the environment. Recently, we launched a Green Initiative to expand the Planet Aviation Group tradition of efficiency and innovation. Through the efforts of Planet Aviation Group’s people and continual improvement of our processes and equipment, we continue to do more with less, reduce our impact on the environment, and to act as good stewards of the communities, land, air, and waters where we live and work.
We maintain long-standing customer, employee, and community relationships by treating people honestly and fairly, providing high quality service, and maintaining environmentally responsible practices.
