CPx Supports Diverse Initiatives
CPx supports diverse initiatives aimed at making the communities where it operates better and more inclusive places.
Through financial donations provided by the company – and through the active engagement of its employees and their families – CPx supports many charitable initiatives. CPx staff coordinate fundraising throughout the year in their workplaces to help support these charitable initiatives.
Other recent and ongoing community support by CPx has been directed to: The Center for Child Development; Right to Play; Little Warriors; the YMCA (whose Surrey, BC facility has a CPx-branded cardio exercise room in recognition of the company’s generosity); food banks and other initiatives to assist the under-privileged; the Canadian Blood Services; the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Society; and Big Brothers.
Efforts to reduce carbon emissions and other environmental impacts are of growing importance throughout the transportation sector, and CPx is responding in various ways.
Equipment – CPx’s operating footprint is lightened through the use of up-to-date and well-maintained equipment. With a more modern fleet, the company has the benefit of the latest innovations in fuel-efficiency and emissions control. CPx also makes extensive use of innovative refrigerated containers which improve load-capacity efficiency relative to fuel consumption.

CPx’s sales and marketing team works closely with its operations team to minimize the number of miles its fleet moves empty. CPx tracks key fuel indicators for every driver then works with the drivers to help them minimize their impact on the environment.
Various aspects of the company’s driver-training programs – including idle reduction, speed control, and optimal gearing – have environmental benefits in the form of reduced emissions.
CPx is committed to continuing to deploy new and commercially feasible equipment and operating procedures as they become available. It has a particular interest in the use of renewable biodiesel – the availability of which is expected to improve over time.
