The unique ability to integrate transportation and warehouse resources is a vital component of VV, providing us the flexibility and efficiency we need to move produce successfully. By running our own trucks, we control in-bound arrival time, ensure complete customer orders, and provide the freshest products possible to our customers. By training our drivers, we ensure their commitment to our philosophy and values.
Our Drivers Are Key To Our Success
VV hires drivers for attitude and trains them for skill. Known to be reliable, friendly, and professional, as well as on time, our drivers contribute an essential element to our distribution service. Relationships with our growers and customers, and ultimately our respected customer service, exist in part because of our excellent drivers. Meet members of our Transportation Deptartment.
Our Fleet Mirrors Our Values
Our trucks reflect VV’s values because we utilize environmentally-friendly technologies, whenever possible. We continually research non-petroleum based fuel options such as hydrogen fuel cells, compressed natural gas, liquid natural gas and biodiesel for our fleet. We also remain committed to green technologies and energy efficiency which is why we work hard to ensure our trucks never drive empty.
VV’s commitment to energy efficiency led us to the purchase of hybrid tractors and trailers. These hybrids increase VV’s fuel economy by 35% compared to our regular semis. The hybrid tractors and refrigeration units produce zero emissions, and run by a mixture of diesel fuel and electric power.
We currently have 24 distinct truck routes that take our fleet all over California, to parts of New Mexico, Southern Colorado, Arizona and Nevada. We also ship to New York and Hawaii. Our trucks are on the road seven days a week.
