I feel so proud seeing my husband start a small business. We have grown so quickly since joining the Amazon Freight Partner programme, and we’ve had no issues. To run Compressed Natural Gas vehicles within our fleet is a great opportunity to lower carbon emissions. We want to invest in our children’s future.
