by Catullus • August 27, 2008
By improving its freight operations, Davis Transfer will contribute to the SmartWay goal of reducing carbon dioxide by 33 to 66 million metric tons and up to 200,000 tons of nitrogen oxide per year by 2012. Carbon dioxide is the most common greenhouse gas, and nitrogen oxide is an air pollutant that contributes to smog. By joining the SmartWay Transport Partnership, Davis Transfer demonstrates its continued strong environmental leadership and corporate responsibility.
“Davis Transfer is delighted to become a SmartWay partner and to demonstrate our commitment to operate our trucking service in an environmentally responsible manner”, said Todd Davis, President. “As one of the leading trucking services provider in the southeast, we know that our actions can have a substantial impact on our environmental footprint.”
Joining the SmartWay partnership also qualifies Davis Transfer to use the SmartWay brand to advertise its environmental excellence.
