England Logistics signs up to green programme

Salt Lake City, UT, US: England Logistics has joined the US Environmental Protection Agency as a SmartWay Transport Partner. The program helps transport companies calculate their environmental performance and set goals designed to cut greenhouse gases and air pollution.

England Logistics will contribute to the partnership’s savings of 1.5bn gallons of fuel, $3.6bn in fuel costs, 14.7m tons of carbon dioxide (CO2), 215,000 tons of nitrogen oxide (NOx) and 8,000 tons of particulate matter.

“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,” says England Logistics president Josh Englan. “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 Partnership, launched in 2004, brings together major freight shippers, truck companies, railroads, logistics companies and trade/professional associations to pursue mutually beneficial strategies that result in emissions reductions and other environmental improvements.
