Sustainability

Here’s what makes FlockDirect the most sustainable way to ship

01

Combining multiple shipments into a single, multi-stop truckload reduces empty truck space and makes efficient use of resources.

02

Ditching the hub-and-spoke system for direct, efficient routes eliminates the need for terminals, significantly reducing transit miles and carbon emissions.

03

Eliminating the need for trans-loading eliminates the energy wasted on trans-loading equipment.

04

Cutting trans-loading out of the equation lowers damage rates, reducing waste caused by discarded and replacement products.

05

Avoiding about 15-40% of CO2e compared to traditional LTL and TL shipping modes.

Our Flockers practice sustainability, too

01

As part of our employee benefit package, we offer subsidized public transit options and partial reimbursements for the purchase of sustainable transportation modes, including electric cars, scooters, and e-bikes.

02

We work to make internal events, such as our year-end holiday party, low-waste, sending as little trash to landfills as possible.

03

Our Encinitas headquarters practices waste diversion by keeping the campus equipped with receptacles for two recycling streams, compost, and, as a final resort, landfill.

04

We’ve equipped our in-office kitchens with compostable dinnerware, giving employees who forget to pack their reusables a green, single-use option.
