Why our partnership with SmartWay is important
Semi-truck fuel tanks can range in size from 125 to 300 gallons. That’s a lot of fuel when they’re full, which results in a lot of stress on the environment when empty. With countless semis traversing the country every year, it’s important to Veltri and our customers that we’re aware of our adverse impact and what we can do to move things in a better direction. That’s why we’re thrilled to ann
ounce our partnership with SmartWay.
In their words, the EPA’s SmartWay program helps companies advance supply chain sustainability by measuring, benchmarking and improving freight transportation efficiency. In this post, we’ll talk about what that looks like and why it’s great for both us at Veltri and all of our clients.
TALK TO ME ABOUT SMARTWAY
SmartWay is made up of three facets.
The SmartWay transport partnership streamlines the process by which freight shippers and carriers measure and improve their operations as far as the environment is concerned.
The SmartWay brand enables EPA to promote fuel saving technologies that decrease the toll on both the environment and partner companies’ bottom lines.
Finally, SmartWay Global Collaboration refers to EPA’s partnership with a wide array of national and global organizations to coordinate and make more efficient sustainability efforts in the freight sector. It also backs policy makers who are looking to SmartWay for sustainability program inspiration.
A SmartWay partnership is a stamp of approval from EPA which says this company is working on reducing their environmental footprint.
The takeaway here is that we’re all responsible for the health of the planet and everything that calls it home. If your company is one that prioritizes environment-friendly practices, then choosing a freight transport partner that shares that mindset is an easy way to act on those good intentions—especially with experts projecting global freight transport emissions to exceed those of passenger vehicles by 2050.
At Veltri, we’re proud to announce that, in addition to our partnership with SmartWay, 15% of our fleet is already green. That number will be 100% in four years.
Let’s move forward together.
