Full Tilt Transportation announced that it joined the SmartWay® Transport Partnership, an innovative collaboration between U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and industry that provides a framework to assess the environmental and energy efficiency of goods movement supply chains.
Full Tilt Transportation will contribute to the Partnership’s savings of 279.7 million barrels of oil, $37.5 billion in fuel costs and 134 million tons of air pollutants. This is equivalent to eliminating annual energy use in over 18.2 million homes. By joining SmartWay Transport Partnership, Full Tilt Transportation demonstrates its strong environmental leadership and corporate responsibility.
“Full Tilt Transportation has always been focused on being a responsible business constantly working to improve efficiency and effectiveness across every aspect of our business. Since our inception, we operate only the most fuel-efficient equipment on the road today. Our partnership with SmartWay Transport is yet another example of our company’s commitment to our environment by helping achieve savings in fuel consumption while continuing to provide the highest level of transportation services available anywhere.” said Cris Novich Managing Director – Transportation.
Developed jointly in early 2003 by EPA and Charter Partners represented by industry stakeholders, environmental groups, American Trucking Associations, and Business for Social Responsibility, this innovative program was launched in 2004. 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 shipper, logistics companies, truck, rail, barge, and multimodal carriers.
