Jacksonville, Fla. – Corporate Traffic Logistics, an international third-party logistics provider celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, announced today that the company has formally joined the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) SmartWay Transport Partnership. Joining this elite community of logistics providers illustrates Corporate Traffic Logistics’ dedication to improving fuel efficiency, reducing emissions and lowering costs, and solidifies the company’s position as an environmentally responsible partner in the logistics industry.
Creating greener transportation is a necessity and our industry has a responsibility to reduce our impact on the environment and each of us in the logistics and transportation industry should be doing our parts to embrace these efforts, said Chris Cline, President of Corporate Traffic Logistics. Lowering fuel consumption and emissions provides long-term cost savings and reduced environmental impact, which are extremely important to the delivery of logistics services, the sustainability of our industry, and to maintaining a healthier planet. The SmartWay Transport Partnership is an excellent program for benchmarking success in these areas and we are honored to be a part of this community of environmentally conscious transportation professionals.
Since the SmartWay Transport program was launched in 2004, the transportation industry has reduced its fuel usage by more than 50 million barrels of fuel, resulting in more than $6.1 billion in fuel costs saved during these past eight years. More than 16.5 million metric tons of carbon dioxide has also been eliminated—the equivalent of removing three million cars off the road—and more than 235,000 tons of nitrogen oxide has been eliminated. These are just a few of the statistics that illustrate the positive impact of the industry’s efforts to reduce its impact on the environment, reduce fuel consumption and reduce fuel costs.
Corporate Traffic Logistics, founded in 1992, is an industry-recognized leader in logistics and transportation services, including asset and non-asset logistics solutions, managed less-than-truckload (M-LTL) shipping, ocean services, expedited air freight, drayage and intermodal services. At Corporate Traffic Logistics, ―Never Settle‖ is more than a motto. It’s a quantifiable mentality that all our employees and partners employ to get our clients the results they need, when they need them.
