Programme is producing measurable results for the industry as a whole
SEKO Logistics has submitted and received approval for its latest data update with the SmartWay Transportation Partnership, an innovative collaboration between the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and industry that provides a framework to assess the environmental and energy efficiency of goods moving in supply chains.
As a SmartWay Partner, SEKO will continue to contribute to the Partnership’s savings of 144.3 million barrels of oil, US$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 13.0 million cars off the road. Carbon dioxide is the most common greenhouse gas, and nitrogen oxide is an air pollutant that contributes to smog.
The SmartWay programme has expanded and evolved to a level of sophistication that is producing measurable results for the industry as a whole. By participating in SmartWay, SEKO now have analytics and reports to better manage carrier relationships, allowing it to focus more on the carriers that are investing in their future with more modern and fuel efficient fleets.
Developed jointly in early 2003 by EPA and Charter Partners represented by industry stakeholders, environmental groups, American Trucking Associations, and Business for Social Responsibility, 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 shippers, logistics companies, truck, rail, barge, and multimodal carriers.
