Transportation management system provider Nulogx announced that it has joined the SmartWay Transport Partnership, a collaboration between the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and industry designed to significantly reduce greenhouse gases and air pollution. Nulogx will pursue activities that support 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 our freight operations.
By joining the SmartWay Transport Partnership, Nulogx says it is demonstrating its strong environmental leadership and corporate responsibility. “Nulogx is committed to working collaboratively with shippers and carriers to reduce greenhouse gases and air pollution,” says Doug Payne, Nulogx president and chief operating officer. “Our world-class transportation management systems and superior operating capabilities allow shippers to transport their goods more efficiently and optimize the use of Smartway carriers, which means a significant benefit to the environment.”
Launched in February 2004, the SmartWay Transport Partnership brings together major freight shippers, trucking companies, railroads, logistics companies and trade/professional associations to pursue mutually beneficial strategies that result in emissions reductions and other environmental improvements, as well as cost savings to the companies. The partnership currently has more than 2,600 partners.
