Ruan Transport Corporation is the newest member of the SmartWay Transport Partnership. Originating as an innovative collaboration between the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the freight industry, the Smartway Transport Partnership was designed to increase energy efficiency while significantly reducing greenhouse gases and air pollution. Ruan earned the highest possible score in its application review.
Ruan will contribute to the partnership's goal to reduce 33 to 66 million metric tons of carbon dioxide and up to 200,000 tons of nitrogen oxide per year by 2012 by improving the environmental performance of its freight operations.
Launched in February 2004, the SmartWay partnership aims to achieve fuel savings of up to 150 million barrels of fuel per year. It brings together major freight shippers, trucking companies, railroads, logistics companies, and trade/professional associations to pursue mutually beneficial efficiencies that result in emissions reductions and other environmental improvements, as well as cost savings to the companies. The partnership currently has more than 947 partners.
