Ventura Express is a Green Transportation Company that delivers complete transportation solutions including Domestic, International, Air, Ocean, LTL and Expedited freight delivery.
We are dedicated to reducing our clients transportation costs and carbon footprint by utilizing the efficiencies of existing fleets and implementing sustainable transportation programs.
Ventura Express, a "Green" Transportation Company created to reduce customer transportation costs while protecting the environment, has opened offices in Ventura County.
The company's sustainable shipping program uses existing transportation fleets to move cargo. "Ventura Express technology analyzes the fleet schedules of dozens of carriers and provides customers with the shortest distance and most fuel efficient shipping routes for their goods," says Dan Boaz, Ventura Express President. "Our goal is to establish a Ventura County transportation hub that eliminates needless round trips, half-empty trucks and other outdated, inefficient practices that push up transportation costs, waste fuel and ultimately damage the environment."
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, rail and truck transport consume over 35 billion gallons of diesel fuel per year. Translated into emissions, this represents more than 350 million metric tons of carbon dioxide annually. "Using Ventura Express' more efficient sustainable shipping program gives customers the ability to reduce their carbon footprint, do their part to clean up the environment and lower the demand for energy--all while saving on shipping costs," says Boaz.
Ventura Express is currently working with more than 100 carriers, many of them certified as "SmartWay Transport" by the EPA. To be certified, the vehicles in these fleets must meet strict EPA clean air and fuel consumption standards. "Using SmartWay carriers gives Ventura Express customers even more value since the fleets use less fuel," says Boaz, who has more than 20 years of transportation experience, most recently as president of AirFreight.com. "Incorporating 'green' shipping practices is especially important as big retailers such as Wal-Mart and Costco establish their own sustainable programs. These giants expect and sometimes require their vendors to adopt environmentally-friendly procedures in manufacturing and shipping their goods."
Ventura Express provides Domestic, International, Air, Ocean, LTL and Expedited Freight Delivery. For more information go to www.VenturaExpress.com or call 805-642-9100
