READING, Pa. – Penske Truck Leasing is now an affiliate in the Canada SmartWay Transport Partnership.
The US EPA launched SmartWay in 2004 and Natural Resources Canada introduced the program to Canada in 2012. The goal of the program is saving fuel and reducing emissions. SmartWay gives companies access to free, standardized tools to help improve productivity and competitiveness. Last year alone, 300 Canadian SmartWay partners saved more than $65 million in fuel costs.
“We appreciate the opportunity to gain SmartWay membership in Canada,” said Drew Cullen, Penske vice-president of fuels and environmental affairs. “Our company has long-term leasing, rental, used truck sales and logistics operations in Canada. We are now able to assist our transportation customers with standardizing their sustainability programs outside the U.S.”
