EPA SmartWay honours freight carriers for supply chain efficiency


WASHINGTON, D.C.–U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is honouring 40 truck carriers and, for the first time ever, a barge carrier, as industry leaders in supply chain environmental and energy efficiency with its annual SmartWay Excellence Awards this week. Awardees are environmentally responsible carriers that move more goods more miles with lower emissions and less energy. The awardees demonstrate how businesses in their industries can save on fuel costs, shrink their carbon footprints and contribute to healthier air.

“EPA recognizes its top SmartWay carrier partners as they lead the way for their peers in this crucial sector of our economy,” said EPA’s Office Director of Transportation & Air Quality Christopher Grundler.

“We all depend on an efficient and sustainable freight sector, and these award-winning SmartWay carriers have demonstrated that they can get the job done while saving fuel and reducing greenhouse gases and other harmful pollutants.”
