England Logistics, a non-asset based transportation provider, has joined the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s SmartWay Transport Partnership as a partner. “For the past 14 years we’ve helped our carrier base reduce fuel waste through optimizing driving routes, energy efficient tire purchase assistance, fuel card programs, and many other successful initiatives,” said Josh England, president. “But now, as a SmartWay Transport Partner, we are an active vehicle of change for one of the largest sustainable freight transportation movements in the world. That makes us very proud.”
The SmartWay Transport Partner program helps transportation companies calculate their environmental performance and set improvement goals designed to significantly reduce greenhouse gases and air pollution.
By joining the partnership, England Logistics is making a commitment to helping SmartWay achieve a 1.5-billion gallon reduction of fuel, which in turn would cut $3.6 billion in fuel costs; 14.7 million metric tons of carbon dioxide; 215,000 tons of oxides of nitrogen, and 8,000 tons of particulate matter.
England Logistics has more than 100 offices in the U.S. and China.
