H R Ewell Inc, East Earl PA, has joined the SmartWay Transport Partnership Program that helps companies and organizations recognize that they can improve their bottom line and the environment at the same time.
"HR Ewell has made significant strides in going 'green' and this is just another way of supporting the initiative to reduce emissions and reduce costs," said Randy Sheeler, vice-president of operations.
Launched in February, 2004, the SmartWay Transport Partnership aims to achieve fuel savings of up to 150 million barrels of fuel per year. The partnership brings together major freight shippers, trucking companies, railroads, logistics companies and trade/professional associations to pursue mutually beneficial efficiencies that result in emissions reductions and other environmental improvements, as well as cost savings to the companies.
"It’s important to understand the commitment that trucking companies have to the environment we work in, as well as our commitment to the customers, the public, and drivers we employ," added Sheeler.
