Shoreside Logistics: Sustainability Guides Growth Initiatives and Investment

[ November 10, 2023   //   ]

Shoreside Logistics’ commitment to JAXPORT and the Jacksonville community guides their investments and exemplifies the smart growth that enhances JAXPORT’s position as a port of the future.
Recently, Shoreside invested over $4 million to replace 70 percent of its company trucking fleet with Peterbilt tractors with engines featuring advanced systems that reduce emissions of nitrogen oxide, carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons and particulate matter.
The trucks they replaced—like many used in drayage—were older and not up to today’s emission standards, according to Shoreside Logistics President Tim Nelson. “I used to say drayage is where old trucks go to die,” Nelson says. “We’re trying to be at the front of the line in leading the change to better equipment.”
