England Logistics has joined the federal Environmental Protection Agency’s SmartWay Transport Partner program.
The program helps freight shippers calculate their environmental effects and set goals to reduce emissions and fuel consumption, according to a news release.
Salt Lake City-based England Logistics is a third-party logistics provider with more than 100 offices in the U.S. and China.
The company plans to provide information to help other carriers become SmartWay partners.
“Education for the public and closer alignment with other SmartWay Transport Partners will play a key role in the group’s ability to reduce the transportation industry’s environmental impact,” Jeff VanWagoner, director of special projects engineering, said in the release.
Formed in 2004, SmartWay attempts to unite shippers, logistics companies and trade associations in pursuit of sustainable transportation. It has netted savings of $3.6 billion in fuel costs, according to the release.
