PFG Advances in Sustainable Distribution


April 24, 2024

THE EV REPORT – Performance Food Group (PFG) and key partners recently showcased their latest sustainable efforts at the Gilroy, CA facility in celebration of Earth Day 2024. The collaboration includes industry leaders such as Volvo Trucks North America, Advanced Energy Machines, FreeWire Technologies, and GridMarket, all contributing to a model distribution center that highlights the future of sustainable practices in the food service industry.

Key Highlights:

  • Zero-Emission Fleet Expansion: PFG has introduced seven zero-emission Volvo VNR Electric trucks, aiming to shift away from diesel.
  • Solar and Battery Integration: A significant installation of rooftop solar panels and battery storage systems supports the facility’s energy needs.
  • Innovative Charging Technology: FreeWire Technologies has implemented advanced charging stations that are essential for maintaining the fleet.

In its quest to reduce its carbon footprint, PFG has taken substantial steps by integrating zero-tailpipe emission vehicles and solar power generation into its operations. Jeff Williamson, senior vice president of Operations at PFG, emphasized the importance of this initiative: “What we’ve achieved at our Gilroy facility is a testament to how strong collaboration by all parties can have significant, positive results that benefit the environment and lead the way when it comes to distribution center sustainability.”
