Sterling Transport Co, Lakeview NC, has joined the SmartWay Transport Partnership by demonstrating efforts at enhancing the environment.
According to information from SmartWay, Sterling Transport 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 trucking operations.
SmartWay is a collaboration between the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the trucking industry, designed to increase energy efficiency while significantly reducing greenhouse gasses and air pollution.
"We are committed to doing our part as a carrier to reduce greenhouse gas and improving our environment," said Hugh Hinton Jr, president. "Sterling Transport is looking forward to helping achieve this goal and doing its part as a responsible corporate citizen."
Launched in February, 2004, the SmartWay Transport Partnership aims to achieve fuel savings of up to 150 million barrels of fuel per year. The partnership 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 approximately 1,400 partners.
