Environmental Initiatives

As a trucking company, Rosedale recognizes that we have a responsibility to the environment.

  • Approved carriers for SmartWay Transport Partnership, committed to improving our fuel consumption annually
  • Truck parts reused by Rosedale maintenance team
  • Tires are used three times at Rosedale, recycled when done, then used as a base for pylons in road construction sites
  • Metal is recycled from our equipment, reducing waste
  • Governors on all Rosedale trucks help maintain speed and a better fuel economy
  • Automatic shut-offs on Rosedale trucks eliminate unnecessary idling
  • Rosedale maintains a young fleet – this allows us to invest in new technologies for the best emission outputs available.
  • In Ontario, we run LCV’s under the guidelines of the MTO. We also use partner LCV’s across the prairies. 
  • Rosedale runs on rail when possible and eliminates empty miles on trucks.
