Transportation

Since 2013, Tractor Supply has been a SmartWay Transport partner. SmartWay Transport is a public-private initiative between the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, large and small trucking companies, rail carriers, logistics companies, commercial manufacturers, retailers, and other federal and state agencies. Its purpose is to improve fuel efficiency and the environmental performance (reduction of both greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution) of supply chains. As a SmartWay partner, TSC has a direct link to other organizations and is able to manage its business by using those carriers. Tractor Supply has also integrated the use of intermodal, or rail, transportation when appropriate, which has taken trucks off the road. Rail is better for the environment primarily because it is much more fuel efficient than trucks.

Improving transportation efficiency is an ongoing focus for Tractor Supply. While our partnerships and systems have been able to significantly reduce diesel fuel consumption and pollution, the company will continue to implement new practices to reduce its environmental impact as it serves customers across the country.

In 2016, Tractor Supply launched the LED lighting retrofit project – the largest single investment in an environmental sustainability project in the company's history. The LED retrofit project will reduce energy consumption in all of Tractor Supply's existing stores. Combined with the company's earlier decision to install LED lighting in all new stores, this project will have a positive impact on the environment for many years to come.

By the end of the project, more than 1,350,000 linear fluorescent lamps will have been removed and replaced by 771,000 energy efficient LED lamps. The new LED lamps are not only more energy efficient, but the materials in the lamps are more environmentally friendly than the materials in the florescent bulbs they are replacing.
