To keep our operations running smoothly, we have a Maintenance Facility manned with a fleet maintenance manager and five maintenance technicians. We have an extensive preventative maintenance system, which incorporates timely preventative maintenance plans. This includes manufacturer recommended maintenance, adjustment and replacement intervals; monitored daily driver pre/post-trip inspections; and the purchase of extended service coverage from the manufacturers. Our trucks and trailers are consistently inspected to meet industry best practices, and to guarantee equipment reliability while reducing on-the-road breakdowns. We always offer safe and timely operating conditions and have a strong network of vendors in place to keep our trucks and your freight moving along.
We have a mobile-manned wash unit on site and a pressure washer stationary site. Our clean equipment policy at Seafood Express (PEI) Ltd. improves our preventative maintenance system. Our Iron Apple-based Trucking Food Safety Program ensures that all trailers are sanitized on a regular basis for safe food transport.
We recognize that the trucking industry is a major contributor to the carbon footprint. Seafood Express (PEI) Ltd. embraces government legislation and industry best practices that help prevent emissions. We have undertaken measures in an effort to be compliant with SmartWay Technologies and have achieved our SmartWay certification. We practice this through driver training; with a focus on driving practices that reduce fuel consumption and idle time. Our equipment drivetrain specifications promote lower fuel consumption and auxiliary power units are used in all of our power units to reduce idle time.

Seafood Express (PEI) Ltd. is conscious that new technologies are continually evolving to improve the reduction of emissions. We are ambitious to embrace these new technologies, as they become available, in order to improve our carbon footprint.
