LOADSMART JOINS U.S. EPA SMARTWAY TRANSPORT PARTNERSHIP

New York, New York — Loadsmart today announced that it joined SmartWay Transport Partnership, an innovative collaboration between the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), an industry that provides a framework to assess the environmental and agency efficiency of goods movement supply chains.

Loadsmart will contribute to the Partnership’s savings of 144.3 million barrels of oil, $20.6 billion in fuel costs, 61.7 MMT of carbon dioxide (CO2 ), 1,070,000 tons of nitrogen oxides, and 43,000 tons of particulate matter, the equivalent of taking 13 million cars off of roads.

Developed jointly in early 2003 by the EPA and Charter Partners represented by industry stakeholders, environmental groups, American Trucking Associations, and Business for Social Responsibility, this innovation program was launched in 2004. 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.

Loadsmart is a proud advocate for a cleaner environment. Our goal is to reduce the total number of deadhead miles travelled annually until they are eliminated completely.
