If you are concerned with the environmental impact throughout
your freight shipping supply chain, there are options for eco-friendly shipping.
The SmartWay Transport Partnership is a collaboration
between the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the freight industry
and is designed to improve and
streamline shipping operations so they use less fuel and generate less
Launched in 2004, the SmartWay Partnership is voluntary
public-private program that:
· provides a system for tracking, documenting and
sharing information about fuel use and freight emissions
· helps companies identify and select more
efficient freight carriers and operational strategies to improve supply chain
sustainability and lower costs from freight movement
· reduces freight transportation-related climate
change and air pollutant emissions
In our on-going effort to be an environmentally
responsible freight shipping broker, PartnerShip is pleased to announce that it

environmental impact from freight transportation.
“We’ve been asked by our customers to help reduce our
collective impact on the environment,” said John Finucane, President and COO of
PartnerShip, “and we’re delighted to join the other 3,000 SmartWay member
businesses that provide eco-friendly shipping that helps decrease our carbon
Since its launch, the SmartWay program has prevented the
release of 73 million metric tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) and 59,000
tons of particulate matter and saved 170.3 million barrels of oil and $24.9
billion in fuel costs - the equivalent of eliminating energy use in over 6
million homes annually. That’s environmentally friendly shipping!
