Tulsa, OK (PRWEB) April 30, 2012
Conexus, LLC, a first-class, non-asset based logistics company based in Tulsa, Okla. is proud to become a SmartWay Transport Partner. The SmartWay Transport Partnership is made up of freight shippers, carriers, logistics companies and other stakeholders, who voluntarily achieve improved fuel efficiency and reduce environmental impacts from freight transport. Participating companies benchmark their current freight operations, identify technologies and strategies to reduce their carbon emissions, track emissions reductions and project future improvement. SmartWay partners demonstrate to customers, clients and investors that they are taking responsibility for the emissions associated with goods movement, are committed to corporate social responsibility and sustainable business practices, and are reducing their carbon footprint.
“As a SmartWay partner we are committed to improving the annual performance of our carrier network by tracking their fuel consumption, benchmarking operations and choosing more efficient carriers to help reduce our overall transport carbon footprint,” said Kyle Gholston, vice president of Conexus. We especially look forward to doing more business within our network of carriers who are also SmartWay partners.”
Collectively, all SmartWay partners have saved more than 50 million barrels of fuel, and eliminated 16.5 million metric tons of CO2, 235,000 tons of NOx, and 9,000 tons of PM since the program’s inception in 2004 through 2010.
“We are proud to become a partner of the SmartWay program, which in the end, benefits us all,” said Gholston.
