AIT's SmartWay Certification Renewed Through 2015
AIT Worldwide Logistics has been notified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that the company has once again fulfilled the SmartWay Partnership requirements for 2014. AIT's certification as a SmartWay Partner was renewed by the EPA and remains in effect until September 16, 2015.
The certification allows AIT to display the SmartWay logo and companies who wish to verify AIT's credentials can do so by viewing the Partner list on the EPA website. The logo is a symbol of the company's work towards more cost-effective and environmentally efficient freight transportation. Many shippers count on their transportation providers to pursue "green" efforts and SmartWay is a widely recognized program that confirms AIT's environmentally-friendly practices.
SmartWaySM Transport is a voluntary collaboration between the Environmental Protection Agency and the freight forwarding community designed to improve energy efficiency, reduce greenhouse gas and air pollutant emissions, and improve energy security. Launched on February 9, 2004, the program aims to ultimately save nearly $10 billion in operating costs within the transportation industry. To learn more about the program, click here.
