GlobalTranz Announces U.S. EPA SmartWay® Transport Partnership

The SmartWay Transport Partnership is doing great work to help companies advance supply chain sustainability by measuring, benchmarking, and freight transportation efficiency.

With this partnership, GlobalTranz will continue to contribute to the Partnership’s savings of 170.3 million barrels of oil, $24.9 billion in fuel costs, 72.8 MMT of carbon dioxide (CO2), 1,458,000 tons of nitrogen oxides, and 59,000 tons of particulate matter.

This is the equivalent to eliminating annual energy use in over 6 million homes. Carbon dioxide is the most common greenhouse gas, and nitrogen oxide is an air pollutant that contributes to smog. By joining SmartWay Transport Partnership, GlobalTranz demonstrates its strong environmental leadership and corporate responsibility.

“We are pleased once again to be part of the SmartWay Transport Partnership”, said Bob Farrell, CEO of GlobalTranz. “The SmartWay Transport Partnership is doing great work to help companies advance supply chain sustainability by measuring, benchmarking, and freight transportation efficiency. It is imperative for all in our industry to be involved”, added Farrell.

Developed jointly in early 2003 by EPA and Charter Partners represented by industry stakeholders, environmental groups, American Trucking Associations, and Business for Social Responsibility, this innovative program celebrated its 10-year anniversary in 2014.

Partners rely upon SmartWay tools and approaches to track and reduce emissions and fuel use from goods movement. The Partnership currently has over 3,000 Partners including shipper, logistics companies, truck, rail, barge, and multimodal carriers.
