Environmental Stewardship Award

Cambell's Trucking

The Environmental Stewardship Award recognizes businesses that support the continued health of the environment while promoting trade and economic development. In 2020, Campbell's Trucking was selected for their investment in 100% renewable LNG to power their trucking fleet.

Campbell’s Trucking has privately funded their fleet conversion of diesel to RLNG, doubling the number of LNG-powered trucks in the past year. The 100% renewable RLNG fleet has allowed Campbell’s Trucking to reduce their carbon footprint by approximately 85%. Owners Shannon and Johnnie Campbell aim to provide their Pacific Northwest customers with a carbon footprint conscious drayage option with the ultimate goal of creating a drayage community with zero emissions.
