Fuel Efficiency in our Australian Transport Fleet Savings
Transporting milk is a significant part of the dairy supply chain and our milk transport fleet uses fuel and emits carbon dioxide.
Recognising this, Fonterra implemented a range of measures in Australia to reduce the environmental impacts of our milk transport fleet’s fuel usage. These include tracking each truck’s weekly fuel usage and equipping new trucks with fuel-efficient engines.
We also optimise the routes our trucks use to collect milk so they use fuel as efficiently as possible and we have a dedicated maintenance team that helps keep our trucks running as fuel-efficient as possible.
