Navajo Express Named As A Top Green Fleet

Thursday, November 19, 2015

Navajo Express was named in the TruckingInfo.com’s (a Heavy Duty Trucking site) list of the Top 50 Green Fleets. This list was built from a collection of carriers that have every effort to achieve better fuel economy, lower emissions, and lessen environmental impact.

At Navajo Express, we have taken great strives to stay current with the latest fuel saving technologies in order to do our part to lead the industry to raise the bar for MPG expectations.  As a Class 8 fleet, we take a comprehensive approach to improving our fuel performance through a combination of purchasing newer, more fuel efficient equipment, and installing the Smart Truck UT6 Plus under tray system on all new trailers.

This system has proven to provide up to a 10% fuel savings at highway speeds (65 MPH), and in combination with Navajo’s new 2016 Kenworth T680’s  (10 speed automated transmissions; full aerodynamic package), we have achieved over 9.3 MPG on OTR trips.

Originally published on CMCA.com

Meet Don Digby, Chairman of the Board of Navajo Express. While most people know Don Digby as being the founder and one of the owners of Colorado’s largest trucking company, Navajo Shippers, few people know about Don’s other passion which is Craig Hospital. Don’s involvement with Craig began after he was involved in a serious accident in December, 2000.
