Nulogx Inc. today announced that it has joined the SmartWay Transport Partnership, an innovative collaboration between U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) 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. Carbon dioxide is the most common greenhouse gas, and nitrogen oxide is an air pollutant that contributes to smog. By joining SmartWay Transport Partnership, Nulogx demonstrates its strong environmental leadership and corporate responsibility.
“Nulogx is committed to working collaboratively with shippers and carriers to reduce green house gases and air pollution,” said Doug Payne, Nulogx President and COO. “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,” continues Payne.
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 over 2,600 Partners.
