EPA Honors Crowley Trucking as 2020 SmartWay High Performer
By continuing to make its freight operations efficient and sustainable, Crowley Trucking has been designated as a 2020 High Performer from the SmartWay Partnership under the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
The designation recognizes trucking fleets that serve seaports, terminals and similar locations for reducing particulate matter (PM) and nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions. About 15 percent of SmartWay participating truck carriers won the High Performer status.
“We know sustainable operations enhance efficiency for our customers and benefit our drivers and the locations we serve,” said Crowley’s Robert Weist, vice president of transportation and supply chain. “We appreciate the EPA SmartWay Partnership for this recognition. It is a credit to our team members who are committed to sustainable operations in every community we serve, and drive to and from.”
Diesel exhaust contributes to PM, or “soot,” as well as to emissions of NOx, especially in and around terminals and freight hubs. PM is an air pollutant harmful to human health and damaging to the environment. NOx reacts with other chemicals in the air to form both PM and ozone, which are harmful when inhaled.
EPA’s SmartWay program helps companies advance supply chain sustainability by measuring, benchmarking, and improving freight transportation efficiency. Crowley Trucking joined the partnership in 2007 as part of the company’s commitment to sustainable, environmentally responsible operations.
“Each day, Crowley Trucking’s dedicated men and women work to ensure our operations at port terminals, warehouses, cross-docks and all points in between are safe, efficient and respect the environment,” said Mike Friedly, director, logistics operations. “Crowley Trucking will build on being a SmartWay High Performer to continue serving customers and site operators in the best possible manner.”
Crowley Trucking is part of Crowley Logistics, a full-service, end-to-end provider of global supply chain solutions.
