BlueGrace Logistics Joins U.S. EPA SmartWay® Transport Partnership

November 21, 2019 // Franchising.com // BlueGrace Logistics announced that it joined the SmartWay® Transport Partnership, an innovative collaboration between U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and industry that provides a framework to assess the environmental and energy efficiency of goods movement supply chains.

BlueGrace Logistics will contribute to the Partnership’s ongoing savings of 279.7 million barrels of oil, $37.5 billion in fuel costs and 134 million tons of air pollutants. This is equivalent to eliminating annual energy use in over 18.2 million homes. By joining SmartWay Transport Partnership, BlueGrace Logistics demonstrates its strong environmental leadership and corporate responsibility.

  • “Our customers rely on BlueGrace to provide reliable, cost-effective logistics solutions, and our carrier network seeks BlueGrace to develop business opportunities that meet their needs.”

Bobby Harris, Founder and CEO of BlueGrace Logistics, commented on this achievement by adding, “Today’s freight shipping clients are increasingly demanding accountability and transparency from the companies in their supply chain, including their transportation partners. As one of the most progressive third-party logistics (3PL) companies in the United States, BlueGrace play a central role in the national supply chain. Our customers rely on BlueGrace to provide reliable, cost-effective logistics solutions, and our carrier network seeks BlueGrace to develop business opportunities that meet their needs. Our clients want us to help address growing demands to improve environmental performance and address environmental risk throughout their supply chain. This SmartWay Transport Partnership with the EPA brings BlueGrace closer to reaching all of these goals.”

Developed jointly in early 2003 by EPA and Charter Partners represented by industry stakeholders, environmental groups, American Trucking Associations, and Business for Social Responsibility, this innovative program was launched in 2004. Partners rely upon SmartWay tools and approaches to track and reduce emissions and fuel use from goods movement. The Partnership currently has over 3,000 Partners including shipper, logistics companies, truck, rail, barge, and multimodal carriers.
