More than anything, we offer the right people the right training. Our drivers are empowered with timely and relevant information from dispatch and dependable technology from a centralized operations center. Standardized practices at every level of our organization make us agile while integrated technology allows us to enter new markets with open minds and the utmost confidence in our ability to provide a higher level of service.
Real innovation. Right now. We make investments early and often. A significant portion of our global fleet runs on biodiesel fuel made from used restaurant cooking oil, and we are committed to continually reducing our green house gas emissions. We are constantly improving our efficiency from advanced routing systems to the designs of our trailers and restrictions in idling time. We understand sustainability is the result of getting the details right. Recycling, food loss prevention, and packaging redesign all play a role in our global commitment.
We protect our customers' brands. This responsibility requires being ready when the conditions change. It means having an emergency delivery ready to go in an hour. It means besting the industry food safety regulations with daily audits. And it means planning around hurricanes and tornadoes with a mobile restaurant waiting in reserve for a worst-case scenario. Failure is not an option for our customers, and it's not an option for us.
Those on the outside view the distribution industry as unchanging, but we know the inside story. We use the latest on-board computers and navigation systems to keep our drivers up to date while they're on the road. We've developed centralized management systems for restaurant, warehouse, and driver reporting so that no matter where in the world our customers and team members find themselves, they are always on the same page. Our balance of new technology and training cuts costs, saves time, and improves accountability. And that's one aspect of our business we're in no hurry to change.
We believe restaurant operators' time is best spent with their customers. That's why we communicate every step of the way and leave nothing to chance. We schedule deliveries before and after peak times and we call ahead to prepare the restaurant staff for delivery. These small but important steps reduce delivery time by 10% to 20%.
Where others see a checkmark, we see an opportunity to do more, and we're willing to put our resources behind this unending quest. It's this spirit that defined us in the beginning and this spirit that continues to set us apart today. We take quiet pride in a job well done, knowing our role is subtle to the public but crucial to suppliers and restaurant owners. Our suppliers can rest assured that their brand remains protected and uncompromised and the restaurant customers know they'll receive precisely what they need, when they need it.
You never truly know what you'll encounter on the road. But you can build strong relationships in every community and with your suppliers to handle the unexpected. Thanks to our network of relationships, we've successfully delivered for major global events, including the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver and the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Even without the advantage of foresight, we've successfully enacted emergency contingencies for unexpected events such as storms and power outages – thanks in no small part to the local relationships and shared objectives and values we've developed with our suppliers over the years.
