Hill Bros Transportation recently received the highest score offered by the US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) SmartWay program. As a SmartWay partner, Hill Bros is recognized for setting and achieving greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction goals in freight transport.

The carrier received a score of 1.25, which, according to the EPA’s website, “represents outstanding environmental performance. These partners already are utilizing most of the commercially available fuel-saving strategies and are actively evaluating the latest emerging technologies. Partners with scores of 1.25 are awarded the honor of displaying the SmartWay Transport Partner logo, EPA’s symbol for superior fuel efficiency and environmental performance.”

Companies receive scores of 1.25, 1.00, 0.75, or 0.00.

In 2004, EPA launched SmartWay to identify products and services that reduce transportation-related emissions.

Albert Hill, Hill Bros co-owner, said, “Hill Bros is committed to doing our part to improve air quality and reduce emissions. We are honored that our efforts to make our fleet more fuel-efficient were recognized by the EPA’s SmartWay program.”
