Transportation company receives 2021 SmartWay Excellence award, along with Multimodal Carrier, SmartWay Tanker recognition

Schneider recently received a 2021 SmartWay Excellence Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

This is 12th consecutive year Schneider was honored for its commitment to sustainability.

The SmartWay Excellence Award is EPA’s highest recognition for leadership in freight supply chain energy and environmental performance.

“This award demonstrates the progress Schneider has made as a leader in sustainability and innovation,” said Rob Reich, Schneider executive vice president and chief administrative officer. “We strive to deliver the most energy-efficient and environmentally conscious solutions, not just to achieve our sustainability goals, but also to play a role in being supportive of our customer’s environmental commitments.”

Schneider was among the first to join the SmartWay Partner program as a charter member. The company continuously proves its commitment to going green in many ways, including the deployment of 50 battery-electric trucks as part of its plan to reduce greenhouse emissions, which will make the organization one of the largest battery-electric truck fleets in North America. The scaling of zero-emission vehicles is a key component of Schneider’s goal to double its intermodal business by 2030, reduce carbon emissions by 7.5% per mile by 2025, and by 60% per mile by 2035. 

SmartWay also this year recognized Schneider with a 2021 High Performer Acknowledgment as a SmartWay Multimodal Carrier, as both a SmartWay Tanker and Truckload/Dry Van Truck Carrier fleet in the Carbon recognition category.

EPA recognized all SmartWay Excellence Award winners during a virtual awards ceremony.
