Englewood Cliffs, NJ — Alliance Shippers Inc., a leading provider of global logistics services, announced it has been honored with a SmartWay Excellence Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as an industry leader in freight supply chain environmental performance and energy efficiency.
Alliance Shippers Inc. was one of 17 shippers and logistics firms to receive this distinction, representing the best environmental performers of SmartWay's 3,700 Partners. The 2019 award winners were honored at the American Trucking Associations Management & Exhibition Annual Conference held in San Diego, California on October 7.
"This year, the U.S. EPA's SmartWay Transport Partnership is recognizing 13 shippers and four third-party logistics providers as recipients of the 2019 SmartWay Excellence Award," said EPA's Director of the Office of Transportation and Air Quality, Sarah Dunham. "These awardees are the top two percent of environmental performers among all of our SmartWay Partners. They are redefining best practices for freight transport by reducing fuel costs and improving the public health of the communities they serve."
Alliance Shippers Inc. began its participation in the SmartWay program in 2005 and was first certified in 2006. Since then, the company has consistently maintained this credential. In 2017, the company received their first Excellence Award from the EPA.
