Unisource Worldwide announced yesterday that its transportation fleet
has met the requirements to be become part of the Environmental
Protection Agencys (EPA) SmartWay Transport Partnership.
The SmartWay Transport Partnership
is a program by which shippers and freight carriers commit to tracking
fuel consumption, benchmarking their progress on emissions and fuel
consumption, and committing to annual improvements.
Over the past few years Unisource has made a significant
investment to improve the energy efficiency and reduce emissions
throughout our transportation fleet, said Steve Petrazio, Vice
President Corporate Real Estate and Fleet Management for Unisource
Worldwide. We are pleased to become a part of the EPA SmartWay
Transport Partnership and look forward to continuing to be an industry
leader in implementing strategies and best practices to improve our
supply chain operations.
Unisource has approximately 80 distribution facilities spread across
North America and operates a fleet of more than 400 vehicles.
Previously, the company had implemented its own proprietary
transportation system called Roadnet to optimize delivery routing and
improve fuel efficiency throughout its fleet.
