Allen Lund Company announced that it has submitted and received approval for its current data submission to the SmartWay Transport Partnership, a collaboration between U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the industry. The SmartWay Transport Partnership provides a framework to assess the environmental and energy efficiency of goods movement supply chains.
Allen Lund Company will continue contributing to the partnership’s savings of 312 million barrels of oil, $41.8 billion on fuel costs and 133 metric tons of CO2, 2.6 million tons of NOx and 109 million tons of PM. This is the equivalent of the annual electricity use in 20 million homes. By joining SmartWay Transport Partnership, Allen Lund Company demonstrates its environmental leadership and corporate responsibility.
"Allen Lund Company has been a proud participant in SmartWay for many years,” said Kenny Lund, executive VP. “We will continue to help the transportation industry deliver goods in the most efficient way possible. Our experienced employees and cutting-edge technology allow carriers and shippers to run more loaded miles with less waiting and supply chain disruption."
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 program celebrated its 10-year anniversary in 2014. Partners rely upon SmartWay tools and approaches to track and reduce emissions and fuel use from goods movement. The partnership currently has more than 3,000 partners including shipper, logistics companies, truck, rail, barge and multimodal carriers.
