KANE is committed to reducing carbon emissions, pollution and congestion with smarter trucks and delivery methods. KANE’s Collaborative Distribution program, for example, pools the inventory and shipments of consumer goods manufacturers so common retail customers can receive fewer, larger shipments. This reduces distribution costs as much as 35% and also reduces emissions, as the same volume of goods is delivered using fewer trucks. Read the Sun-Maid Story.

KANE facilities couple energy-efficient T5 lighting with motion sensors. T5 lighting lasts 2-3 times longer than metal halide lamps, generating savings of $260,000 dollars and 3.5 million kilowatt-hours annually.
