Penske Logistics is a recipient of the 2018 Freight Carrier Excellence Award from the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) SmartWay program. The company was one of 40 organizations to receive this distinction, representing the best environmental performers of SmartWay’s 3,700 program participants. Penske Logistics was also given a SmartWay Excellence Award in 2017.
“We were able to receive this award based on best environmental practices within our logistics fleet,” said Drew Cullen, Penske senior vice president of fuels and facility services. “Our company has become more efficient in this area.”
“We are honored to be recognized once again by our nation’s leading environmental agency,” said Marc Althen, Penske Logistics president. “We take pride in operating a highly modern and highly efficient truck fleet that reduces the carbon footprint of our customers each and every day.”
The company received the accolade at the 2018 American Trucking Associations (ATA) Annual Management Conference & Exhibition in Austin TX recently.
Since 2004, SmartWay Partners have avoided emitting more than 103 million tons of air pollutants (NOx, PM, and CO2) contributing to cleaner air and healthier citizens, while saving more than 215.4 million barrels of oil and $29.7 billion in fuel costs—equivalent to eliminating the annual energy use of more than 14 million homes.
