United Natural Foods, Inc. Accelerates Progress in Fleet Safety and Sustainability Through Partnership With Samsara; Gregory Tieder Comments

Friday, April 19th, 2024

With the support of its newest partner, Samsara, United Natural Foods, Inc. (UNFI) is making new sustainability progress with its delivery fleet.

Gregory Tieder, Senior Director of Corporate Logistics, United Natural Foods, Inc.“The safety, efficiency, and sustainability improvements UNFI will make with Samsara will help us change our business for the better. A core part of UNFI’s customer and supplier-centric strategy is continuous improvement and better efficiency,” said Gregory Tieder, Senior Director of Corporate Logistics.

Through this partnership, UNFI has adopted Samsara Vehicle Telematics, Asset Gateways, Environmental Monitors, and Video-Based Safety.

United Natural Foods, Inc. recently partnered with Samsara to make its delivery fleet more sustainable

As a press release outlined, the majority of UNFI’s direct emissions are from its fleet, and by the end of its fiscal year 2030, the company has a goal to sharply reduce Scope 1 and 3 emissions from transportation.

To make this possible, UNFI developed an electric vehicle (EV) blueprint, covering multiple California distribution centers and fleets, to better understand where EVs can benefit its operations. It is also using technology like Samsara Vehicle Telematics to improve customer deliveries and reduce fuel-wasting behaviors.

"UNFI operates 24/7 to meet the needs of our customers. They expect on-time deliveries despite poor weather, heavy traffic, and other challenges we face on the road. High-quality service creates complexity, but we won’t compromise on safety. Samsara helps us to reliably deliver for our customers while also strengthening our safety practices,” said Tieder.
