Parkland Idle Smart Campaign 

logo-hse-idle-smart.gifIn recent years Columbia Fuels, a division of Parkland Fuel Corporation, has made major investments in truck technology.  Fleet tracking and asset management units have been installed nationally and allow for real-time communication between drivers and dispatchers. 

This initiative supports Columbia Fuels’s work alone safety policy and provides the opportunity to capture utilization reporting.  Columbia Fuels and other Parkland companies continuously monitor relevant data and are proactively identifying opportunities to optimize fuel consumption, reduce emissions, and minimize other environmental-related health risks.

The Idle Smart awareness campaign has been rolled out nationally across Columbia Fuels and other Parkland companies.  The implementation and success of the policy will contribute significantly to the company’s core values as a respected leader in the commercial fuel industry.
