Next Generation Logistics, Inc. (NGL) a leading provider of managed freight services, TMS software, and supply chain consulting, announced today that it has added SmartWaySM functionality to its FreightMaster TMS® Suite transportation management system. The SmartWaySM Transport Partnership is a voluntary program designed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to help reduce transportation related air pollution and global greenhouse gas emissions, and improve fuel efficiency.
As a supporter of this initiative, NGL has launched a new 4.7 release of its FreightMaster TMS® Suite transportation management system, a best of breed solution for all major ERP systems including Microsoft Dynamics™. This enhancement will allow NGL managed services customers and FreightMaster TMS® Suite users to track and report SmartWaySM required metrics and measure their environmental performance for their transportation movements. The added features and tools within the FreightMaster TMS® Suite can improve operating efficiencies by properly scheduling pick ups and deliveries reducing idle time and improve truckload consolidations and planning, and therefore further reducing emissions.
“NGL is committed to promoting the environment and supporting our customers and those within our industry who embrace similar green initiatives,” said John Riske, Vice President, Business Development for Next Generation Logistics, Inc.
SmartWaySM Transport is an innovative collaboration between EPA and the freight sector designed to improve energy efficiency, reduce greenhouse gas and air pollutant emissions, and improve energy security.
