Intermodal rail train track in Banff National Park Canada

Being eco-friendly is our responsibility

We believe that it’s our social responsibility to be up to speed on eco-friendly initiatives wherever we can. That’s why we ensure that our equipment complies with Environment Protection Standards. In addition to having all our trucks regularly maintained and in top working order, we also perform regulatory emissions tests as our standard practice. Along with implementing an environmentally-friendly program on the road, we also encourage our staff throughout our terminal network to recycle, reduce the use of paper and power off equipment whenever it is not in use. Small steps have a cumulative effect and can truly make a big difference for future generations.

Intermodal shipping is one of Canada’s greenest modes of transportation

When you partner with an intermodal transportation leader like Direct Right, you are choosing one of Canada’s greenest modes of transportation. Shipping freight via rail has exceptional fuel economy. On average, trains are three to four times more fuel efficient than trucks. One singular locomotive can transport a tonne of goods more than 220 km on a single litre of fuel which in turn removes upwards of 300 trucks from our congested roads. When you choose to ship with Direct Right, you are playing a vital role in reducing emissions and improving Canada’s environmental footprint.
