Trucking companies earn U.S. EPA SmartWay Excellence Award

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has named the winners of the 2020 SmartWay Excellence Award.

58 trucking and multimodal carriers received this distinction. Among them, Penske Logistics was awarded for sustainability practices in the Truck Carrier category. This is the fifth such honor this decade and the fourth consecutive win for the organization. For the sixth consecutive year, Old Dominion has been awarded the SmartWay Excellence Award. Schneider was honored with the award for the 11th time, and Heartland Express, Inc. was also honored with the award.

Since 2004, SmartWay say SmartWay Partners have avoided emitting more than 134 million metric tons of harmful air pollution, while saving 280 million barrels of oil and $37.5 billion in fuel costs—equivalent to eliminating annual energy use in over 18 million homes.
