The Kenan Advantage Group Inc (KAG), North America’s largest bulk transportation and logistics provider, announced its subsidiary Dedicated Transport, LLC, was honored with the SmartWay Excellence Award from the Environmental Protection Agency for the third consecutive year.
“We have achieved this success by running newer, more efficient power units and continually working to increase our loaded mileage ratios,” says Tom Connolly, Dedicated Transport’s Director of Logistics. “This allows us to provide more reliable service to our customers while reducing cost through fuel efficiency and the elimination of empty miles.
“Dedicated Transport is committed to protecting the public welfare through our focus on safety and our commitment to the EPA’s SmartWay program.”
The SmartWay Excellence Award recognizes industry leaders in freight supply chain environmental performance and energy efficiency. Dedicated Transport, one of 62 companies to receive this distinction, represents the top 2% of the best environmental performers of SmartWay’s 3,600 partners.
The Excellence Awardees were honored at the American Trucking Associations Management and Exhibition Annual Conference held in Orlando FL.
