Heniff Transportation Systems, headquartered in Oak Brook IL, recently was named a 2019 SmartWay High Performer by the SmartWay Transport Partnership, a collaboration between the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the transportation industry.
Heniff Transportation is a for-hire liquid bulk chemical carrier.
“As a Partner of the SmartWay Transport Partnership, we remain committed to a sustainable future,” said Bob Heniff, chief executive officer of Heniff Transportation. “We take great pride in being recognized for our carbon footprint reduction and will continue working to identify various areas we can further reduce our impact on the environment.”
Fewer than 10% of all SmartWay carriers operate fleets efficient enough to make the SmartWay High Performers list for carbon emissions. Carbon is a leading indicator of fuel use, meaning that High Performers for carbon also consume less fuel for every mile they travel and for every ton of freight they move.
For example, for every trip they make, high performing SmartWay truckload carriers for carbon move heavier loads, packing their trailers more efficiently—and still consume thousands of gallons of less fuel annually, as compared to their SmartWay peers.
The SmartWay Transport Partnership provides a framework to assess the environmental and energy efficiency of goods movement supply chains. Partners rely upon SmartWay tools and approaches to track and reduce emissions and fuel use from goods movement. The Partnership currently has more than 3,000 partners, including shippers, logistics companies, truck, rail, barge and multimodal carriers.
