Commitment to Sustainability
Because we understand the impact our equipment can have on the environment, ABF has operated with sustainability in mind for nearly 50 years. Efficiency measures range from limiting truck speeds to conserve fuel and reduce emissions to purchasing equipment with computerized engine shut offs that reduce idling, minimize fuel consumption and limit emissions. We also consistently replace older equipment models with newer, cleaner trucks to further reduce net emissions — the average age of ABF road tractors is 22 months and city power units average six years.
In 2021, ABF was presented the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) SmartWay Excellence Award for the 5th time, and third year running. This award recognizes the top shipping and logistics companies that move goods in the cleanest, most energy-efficient way. Learn more about ArcBest sustainability efforts.
Rooted in ArcBest’s values-driven culture, the people at ABF take pride in their work and have a reputation for excellence. Through the ABF Driver Development Program and other on-the-job-training offerings, ABF provides excellent service to ArcBest LTL customers — committed to delivering every shipment with professionalism and care. And we’re proud to hire our nation’s heroes. Through the Teamsters Military Assistance Program (TMAP), ABF offers job opportunities for Army personnel transitioning to their new civilian career — training soldiers across the country for their Class A CDLs and getting them ready for a career in the LTL industry.
