SEATTLE — The Essential Baking Company, which delivers within a 40-mile radius of Seattle, has switched to a new fleet of 13 B99 biodiesel delivery trucks. Peter Miller, president and chief executive officer of The Essential Baking Company, said that switching to a biodiesel fleet was primarily the result of rising costs of traditional fossil fuels and the company’s socially responsible and ecologically friendly philosophies. Comprising the fleet are nine new Dodge Sprinters, three Ford Cargo E-250s, and one Isuzu NPR Box truck. Finding local sources for maintenance and fueling for the vehicles wasn’t difficult for The Essential Baking Company, which currently uses Dr. Dan’s (Freeman) Alternative Fuel Werks of Ballard for biodiesel fueling and International Truck Leasing for trucks and service, among others.
