Here at TrailersPlus, we are committed to doing our part to help the environment by actively taking steps toward sustainability. Our products are a reflection of our company, and thus it is vital that we utilize materials that are not only sustainable but also environmentally friendly. We understand the importance of material sourcing, and that is why we seek to utilize only the best materials available.
Through our partnership with Universal Forest Products (UFP), we ensure that wood utilized in our cargo, dump, and utility trailers, is being harvested responsibly and in compliance with local forestry regulations. UFP is the nation’s leading manufacturer and distributor of wood products and we’re proud to partner with them.
Customers may also have peace of mind knowing that the steel used in all Interstate trailers is a green construction material. Aside from being incredibly strong and durable, steel is a highly recyclable material that can be reused countless times. Over recent years, the processes of steel production have also seen a decrease in carbon emissions which has allowed for it to become a more viable option for construction.
Outside of material sourcing, TrailersPlus is also moving towards a more sustainable future by taking advantage of renewable energy. Our implementation of solar panels on select dump trailers allows for energy conservation while reducing the need for an outside battery source. As we move forward, we will continue to look for ways to improve and implement new technologies to help reduce energy consumption.
