TMSA Members Receive 2016 EPA SmartWay Award

The Transportation Marketing & Sales Association congratulates the 43 winners of the 2016 EPA SmartWay Excellence Awards – particularly the members of TMSA that received the award, including Bison Transport, C.A.T. Inc., J.B. Hunt Transport, PITT OHIO, and UPS.

EPA's SmartWay Excellence Awards recognizes exceptional achievement among EPA SmartWay Partners. Companies receiving the award lead the way in reducing climate change and air pollution emissions from freight supply chains. Those receiving the awards are chosen from more than 3,000 companies and organizations participating in SmartWay.

“EPA’s SmartWay Transport Partnership is a exemplary model of cooperation between the commercial freight transportation industry and government,” said Brian Everett, TMSA's CEO. “It's an example of how business and government can work together and how the transportation industry can reduce fuel use and greenhouse emissions. We at TMSA congratulate the industry leaders that are recognized for their achievements in this important mission.”

EPA’s SmartWay Transport Partnership is a market-driven initiative that empowers businesses to move goods in the cleanest, most energy-efficient way possible, while protecting public health and reducing the impacts of climate change. Demonstration of a commitment to corporate sustainability and social responsibility through SmartWay provides for a more competitive and environmentally-friendly business environment. Since 2004, SmartWay Partners have saved 170.3 million barrels of oil—the equivalent of eliminating annual energy use in over 6 million homes and $24.9 billion in fuel costs. SmartWay’s clean air achievements (72.8 million metric tons of carbon dioxide, 1,458,000 tons of nitrogen oxides, and 59,000 tons of particulate matter emissions avoided) help to protect the well-being of citizens.

Congratulations to these TMSA members!
