Vedder Transportation Group
Vedder Transport is the largest hauler of raw milk in Canada. This for-hire fleet based in Abbotsford, British Columbia, has 65 Peterbilt 386 LNG highway tractors representing about 15 per cent of its fleet. The trucks refuel at 3 private LNG fuelling terminal (Abbotsford, Delta and Kamloops in British Columbia) in the Vedder yards. Each truck emits about 70 tonnes less carbon per year compared to a diesel truck. Fuel savings exceed $0.30 per diesel litre equivalent. Vedder can now market its LNG trucks as a green service for its customers as these are the lowest emission highway tractors on the road.
