Davis Transfer Company, Inc, Renews with the U.S. EPA SmartWay® Transport Partnership
Carnesville, GA – Davis Transfer today announced that it has submitted and received approval for their 2014 data update with the SmartWay® Transport Partnership, an innovative collaboration between U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and industry. The SmartWay Transport Partnership provides a framework to assess the environmental and energy efficiency of goods movement supply chains.
Davis Transfer will continue to contribute to the Partnership’s savings of 144.3 million barrels of oil, $20.6 billion in fuel costs, 61.7 MMT of carbon dioxide (CO2), 1,070,000 tons of nitrogen oxides, and 43,000 tons of particulate matter, the equivalent of taking 13 million cars off the road. Carbon dioxide is the most common greenhouse gas, and nitrogen oxide is an air pollutant that contributes to smog. By joining SmartWay Transport Partnership, Davis Transfer demonstrates its strong environmental leadership and corporate responsibility.
“At Davis Transfer, we strive to better ourselves each and every day. It is our responsibility as a company, to ensure that we are doing all we can to leave a positive impact on the roads, the people we meet, the world we live in, and the future generations.” Brittany Britt, Director of Safety
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 innovative 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 over 3,000 Partners including shipper, logistics companies, truck, rail, barge, and multimodal carriers.
