The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has named Schneider Logistics a SmartWay Transport Partner. Schneider said it will expand its SmartWay efforts beyond its freight management carriers to its 10,000 transportation management carriers.
According to the company, 71% of the miles driven in the past 12 months by Schneider Logistics’ freight management network moved on SmartWay-certified third-party carriers.
As a SmartWay Transport Partner, Schenider Logistics agreed to increase its SmartWay carrier usage by 10%; give SmartWay Transport Partner carriers an advantage in the freight bidding process; have logistics customers reduce idling when loading and unloading, and educate its employees on their own personal carbon footprints.
The SmartWay Transport Partnership is a voluntary collaboration between the EPA and the freight industry geared towards increasing energy efficiency while reducing greenhouse gases and air pollution.
