BIRMINGHAM, Alabama – (December 6, 2013) – P&S Transportation, a leading national flatbed trucking and logistics company, was recently honored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) with the 2013 SmartWay Excellence Award. This award honors the top 1% of all SmartWay Partners in recognizing their contributions to the sustainability of global supply chains.
About SmartWay and the Excellence Award
Launched in 2004, SmartWay is an EPA program that uses market-based incentives to reduce transportation-related emissions, increase energy efficiency and improve overall air quality. The annual Excellence Award recognizes the top shipping, logistics and freight carriers in achieving these goals. P&S Transportation is the only company to be recognized this year in the category of Flatbed Carrier Fleets.
“P&S Transportation is proud to receive this prestigious award,” said Robbie Pike, CEO of P&S Transportation. “Winning this award is a testament to our ongoing sustainability effort.”
P&S Transportation was evaluated based on its efficiency and environmental performance in moving products and merchandise. P&S Transportation’s participation in the EPA’s SmartWay program has resulted in more than 50 million barrels of fuel saved, and a reduction of 16.5 million tons of CO2 emissions—the equivalent of taking 3 million cars off the road.
The company’s truck fleet utilizes advanced green practices, minimizing carbon dioxide and air pollutants. P&S truck engines meet or exceed the latest EPA emission standards and their tires use low rolling-resistance technology.
