Englewood Cliffs, NJ— Alliance Shippers Inc., a leading worldwide provider of global logistics services, renews their 2016-2017 U.S. EPA SmartWay® Transport Partnership. Alliance Shippers Inc. continues their commitment to track and report its carbon accounting practices. Freight transportation is one of the fastest growing impacts on the environment and as consumer demand increases, we are committed to respond with the most efficient and cleaner transportation practices.
Alliance Shippers Inc. is a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) SmartWay® Transport Partner. EPA recently approved our annual submission of Partnership reporting requirements for 2016-2017. Alliance Shippers Inc. joined the SmartWay initiative in 2006. Each year performance data is submitted and reviewed to qualify as a SmartWay partner.
"As a partner of the EPA’s SmartWay program since 2006, Alliance Shippers has continuously worked to improve sustainability. The company recently added 200 energy-efficient refrigerated trailers to increase its fleet to nearly 2,100 CARB-compliant trailers. Building our fleet of refrigerated trailers with the most current technology enables Alliance Shippers to move refrigerated goods via the nations railroad system— resulting in reduced CO2 emissions by approximately 67% as compared to the same goods moved via highway trucks” said Larry Henry, Vice President Logistics & Special Projects.
