Often referred to as the capacity to endure, Sustainability has been an integral part of our history. From the very beginning, Modern has entered into business relationships and attained resources for the purpose of sustaining success for the long haul, both literally and figuratively.
In 2012, Modern was the first commercial carrier to run production lanes in tractors powered by 12-liter liquefied natural gas (LNG) engines. This commitment to the environment has resulted in a dramatic reduction of our carbon footprint, as nearly 10% of our current fleet is powered by LNG.
Integral elements of sustainability are research and innovative activities. Our collaborative relationships with our equipment vendors, coupled with our reputed commitment to continuous improvement, render us the perfect partner when new innovations in fuel, lubricants, or safety require real-time testing. We are always seeking to uncover and develop the next innovative idea.
