Several Canadian fleets were among this year’s 75 truck carriers, logistics providers and shippers who were awarded by the EPA “for their leadership, environmental performance and energy efficiency” with its annual SmartWay Excellence Award.
This year’s awardees were announced at a virtual awards ceremony hosted by EPA, November 5. The 2020 SmartWay Excellence Awardees demonstrate how businesses in this crucial economic sector continue to lead through challenging times. These winning companies exhibit superior freight performance by saving fuel, shrinking their emissions footprints, and contributing to healthier air in the communities they serve. This year’s awardees include a diverse group of large and small companies from across North America that met or surpassed a high bar for recognition. Many are receiving EPA’s SmartWay Excellence Award for the first time, while others have received the award at least five times and three awardees earned the recognition in multiple categories.
Canadian companies include:
Bison Transport Inc.
JED Express Ltd.
Logistics Trans West Inc.
Midland Transport Limited
Since 2004, SmartWay Partners have avoided emitting more than 134 million tons of air pollution, while saving 280 million barrels of oil and $37.5 billion in fuel costs – equivalent to eliminating annual energy use in over 18 million homes.
