Biodiesel Truck Fleet Becomes 'Baker's Dozen'
For 11 years they’ve been the Northwest’s bakery “alternative” by serving European artisan bread comprising organic ingredients. In December, 2005, The Essential Baking Company took another alternative to the streets with the use of its new fleet of B99 biodiesel delivery trucks. The bakery sold off its entire fossil-fueled fleet in favor of leasing 13 biodiesel-powered trucks.
Peter Miller, President and Chief Executive Officer of the 200-employee Essential Baking Company, said in a news release 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. Simply put, “going biodiesel” was better aligned with the brand’s core values.
Comprising the fleet are nine new Dodge Sprinters, three Ford Cargo E250’s, and one Isuzu NPR Box truck. The Essential Baking Company delivers within a 40-mile radius of Seattle. All bakery goods are now delivered using the new biodiesel trucks.
