With biodiesel’s popularity on the rise, it’s time for those in the logistics industry to decide whether or not it’s a plausible alternative for them, or if they’re going to remain faithful to the fossil diesel that’s been their bread and butter all these years.
As society becomes more environmentally conscious, we’re continuously on the lookout for ways to reduce our carbon footprint.Because of this, many people are switching to biodiesel fuel.
