Commitment to Pollution Prevention

We fully recognize that through our daily operations we inevitably impact the environment in a number of ways.  Thomson challenges itself to minimize the potentially harmful effects of our operational activities, wherever and whenever possible. As the size of the Thomson Terminals fleet increases so do our concerns and efforts in minimizing emissions, energy usage and the overcrowding of our roadways.
