FROM THE DRIVER’S SEAT

ELECTRIFIED GOAT

“A what?” you ask.  It is not a dance move or a grunge band.  A yard goat is a specialized tractor to move containers and trailers between the dock door and the drop lot.  Normally, these trucks are diesel powered, but not this one.  It runs on electrically-charged batteries.  We are working with the folks at TransPower and the California Energy Commission and are putting this piece of equipment to work in downtown Sacramento at Blue Diamond Growers.

Devine is committed to both exploring and utilizing new and cleaner technologies in our fleet.  This electric yard goat is just one example.
