The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently recognized Schneider National as a 2023 SmartWay High Performer.

This year’s crop of high-performing truck carriers also includes tank truck fleets Andrews Logistics and Bynum Transport in the all-metrics category; and Bulkmatic Transport Company, Grammer Logistics, Heniff Transportation Systems, J&M Tank Lines, LTI, Inc., and Sentinel Transportation (lubes) in the carbon-metric category.

The SmartWay High Performer list is developed annually to honor carriers that excel in producing more efficient and sustainable supply chain solutions.

“Reducing emissions is a priority, and we are focused on implementing innovative, environmentally friendly options to achieve this,” Rob Reich, Schneider executive vice president and chief administrative officer, said in a news release. “We continue accelerating our business and the broader industry toward a more sustainable future, most notably with the addition of our electric vehicle fleet and charging depot in South El Monte, California.”

Earlier this year, Schneider opened a large-scale battery electric vehicle (BEV) operation with nearly 100 Freightliner eCascadias and a charging depot capable of powering 32 trucks simultaneously.

Schneider is committed to several sustainability goals, including doubling its intermodal size by 2030, reducing carbon emissions per mile by 7.5% by 2025, and 60% by 2035. The carrier says it already has achieved more than half of its 2025 goal by reducing per-mile emissions by 5%.
