Rockleigh, NJ (PRWEB) May 12, 2008
With high energy prices, increasing fuel emissions and an emphasis on being 'green', individuals and corporations are all becoming more aware of their impact on the environment. This includes members of the transportation industry.
Community-minded and environmentally aware, NVC Logistics Group is a nationwide transportation management company, making thousands of truck deliveries each year. It is also committed to improving its environmental "footprint" within the freight transportation sector. With this in mind, NVC has joined the EPA sponsored SmartWay℠ Transport Partnership.
The goal of the SmartWay℠ Transport Partnership is to produce greater energy efficiency and air quality within the freight industry. The program aims to reduce millions of tons of greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution while simultaneously resulting in fuel savings of up to 150 million barrels of oil annually by 2012. "We've always strived to act in an environmentally responsible manner," said Bob Kovacs, VP Operations. "Our voluntary membership in this program is an active way we can promote cleaner ground freight transportation while providing value-added transportation solutions to customers."
Partners commit to measure and improve the environmental impact of their freight operations with support from EPA-developed tools, materials and incentives. These tools help quantify benefits of fuel-saving strategies such as: reduced engine idling, operational efficiency, improved loading facilities, energy-efficient lighting, etc.
"It's a small, but significant step and NVC is proud to be a SmartWay℠ member, Kovacs said. Reducing fuel consumption, saving money and making a positive impact on the environment is a win-win situation.
