EPA Awards SmartWay Shipping, Logistic Partners

2014 SmartWay Excellence AwardsHewlett-Packard, Lowe’s and Home Depot are among the 2014 winners of the EPA’s SmartWay awards, which honors freight industry companies’ environmental leadership.

Winners are in the top 5 percent of SmartWay performers in improving fuel efficiency, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and reducing air pollution.

The annual SmartWay Excellence Award honors top truck, intermodal and rail carrier partners that are setting efficiency benchmarks in how they move products and supplies. Shipping and logistics partners are recognized for superior efficiency and additional actions to reduce freight emissions through effective collaboration, advanced technology and operational practices, a robust system for validating and reporting their SmartWay data, and communications and public outreach.

In addition to the three named above, SmartWay Excellence Award recipients for shipper and logistic companies are Johns Manville, Kimberly-Clark, SC Johnson and Son, Nordstrom, Expeditors International of Washington, Menlo Logistics, Ryder Supply Chain Solutions and ShipCarsNow.

The SmartWay program launched in 2004 to help the freight industry improve its environmental performance. Clean air achievements through SmartWay include reducing more than 50 million metric tons of CO2.

Lowe’s and Ryder Supply Chain Solutions received SmartWay awards last year in the large shipper and large logistics categories, respectively.
