ERIE, PA (September 29, 2016) - Logistics Plus Inc., a leading worldwide provider of transportation, logistics and supply chain solutions, is pleased to announce it is entering its sixth consecutive year as an approved SmartWay® Transport Partner after the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently renewed its membership status for successfully fulfilling the SmartWay Partnership requirements for 2016.
SmartWay is the EPA's initiative to reduce the carbon footprint of the freight industry. It is a voluntary partnership between shippers, carriers, logistics companies, and the EPA created to reduce the amount of air pollution caused by the transportation supply chain industry, while also using technologies to help reduce fuel costs. Since 2004, SmartWay partners have saved over 7 billion gallons of fuel, lowered fuel costs by $24.9 billion and reduced carbon emissions by 72.8 million metric tons.
Logistics Plus first joined the SmartWay initiative in 2011 with the goal of improving its impact on the environment. Each year performance data is submitted and reviewed to qualify as a SmartWay partner. Approved companies are posted on the EPA website at https://www.epa.gov/smartway/smartway-partner-list and confirmed as an active SmartWay Partner.
"By measuring, benchmarking, and assessing our freight transportation activities, we're able to make better choices that reduce greenhouse gas pollution," said Steve Srnka, compliance attorney for Logistics Plus. "Our continued SmartWay approval confirms to our customers and partners that Logistics Plus is committed to doing its part for environmental sustainability."
