Route Transportation and Logistics has officially been approved for the 3rd year of the SmartWay® Transport Partnership, and continues its goal to help advance supply chain sustainability.
SmartWay is a voluntary program launched by the EPA in 2004 to help freight shippers, carriers, logistics companies, and other transportation businesses reduce freight transportation-related emissions. By reporting and measuring fuel efficiency and emissions, SmartWay partners are proactively reducing their environmental footprint year after year.
There are nearly 4,000 participants that contribute to the partnership’s savings of 336 million barrels of oil, $44.8 billion in fuel costs and 143 million tons of air pollutants. With the renewal of the SmartWay partnership, Route will work with the EPA to achieve freight efficiency goals while growing and expanding its carrier network.
