Concord, NC – August 21, 2019 – Each year, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) monitors sustainability efforts of shippers, truck carriers, and logistics service providers through their SmartWay Partners program. Cardinal Logistics performed in the top 10 percent of all US truck carriers in the Truck Carriers, Carbon Metrics category.
“As a leader in transportation, Cardinal understands the importance of monitoring and managing fuel consumption to best serve our community and customers,” said Vin McLoughlin, Cardinal Chairman of the Board. “We are proud to do our part to create a more efficient, productive, and sustainable freight industry and to more efficiently manage fuel consumption to keep the cost of our services down.”
Carbon is a leading indicator of fuel use, meaning that SmartWay High Performers for carbon also consume less fuel for every mile they travel and for every ton of freight they move. For example, for every trip they make, high performing SmartWay truckload carriers for carbon move heavier loads, packing their trailers more efficiently – and still consume thousands of gallons of less fuel annually, as compared to their SmartWay peers.
