The recipients of the SmartWay Excellence Awards from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for 2019 were recently announced. Awards are given for being leaders in freight supply chain environmental performance and energy efficiency.
SmartWay Excellence Awardees are selected based on exceptional environmental performance as demonstrated by their annual freight assessment and emissions tracking tool submissions, the EPA says. The awardee selections are based on environmental performance as demonstrated by partner data submissions with the SmartWay freight assessment and emission tracking tools.
“Over the past 15 years, the U.S. EPA’s SmartWay Transportation Partnership has provided the tools and information for thousands of companies to create leaner, more efficient supply chains,” said Sarah Dunham, EPA’s office of transportation and air quality director. “This year, EPA is recognizing 72 companies with SmartWay Excellence Awards for outstanding environmental achievements and leadership in goods movement. These truck carriers, shippers, and third-party logistics providers are leading the industry and showing that it is possible to move more goods while using less fuel, reducing pollution and cutting costs.”
EPA recognizes eligible partners in the following categories: Shipper awards, logistics awards, and carrier awards.
In total, 72 awards were given. You can find the full list on the EPA website.
