Seattle’s Essential Baking Company Shifts Delivery Fleet to B99 Biodiesel
28 December 2005
The organic bakery sold off its old fleet of trucks and leased 13 newer diesels: nine Dodge Sprinters, three Ford Cargo E250s and one Isuzu NPR Box Truck. All run on the B99 fuel.
Peter Miller, President and Chief Executive Officer of the 200-employee Essential Baking Company, said that aside from the rising costs of traditional fossil fuels, switching to a biodiesel delivery fleet stemmed primarily from the company’s socially responsible and ecologically friendly philosophies: “going biodiesel” was better aligned with the brand’s core values.
The Essential Baking Company currently uses Dr. Dan’s (Freeman) Alternative Fuel Werks of Ballard for biodiesel fueling, and International Truck Leasing for trucks and service of the fleet, among others.
