Toyota transport wins EPA SmartWay award
24 October 2013
Toyota Motor Sales, USA, Inc.’s transportation team, Toyota Logistics Services (TLS), moves approximately 2.2 million new Toyota and Lexus vehicles to dealerships every year. This week the US EPA recognized TLS for making these moves as efficient as possible.
TLS received an Excellence Award from the US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) SmartWay Transport program; the SmartWay Excellence Awards program recognizes the top 1% of SmartWay partners with superior environmental performance.
Toyota is committed to utilizing only SmartWay highway transportation carriers. These carriers have been tested and verified, through the SmartWay Assessment Tool, as carriers that continually reduce fuel consumption and lower emissions. Toyota’s logistics partners are committed to investing in enhanced new equipment and industry best practices in order to maintain their SmartWay certification.
The SmartWay program is designed to improve fuel efficiency and reduce greenhouse gases and air pollution from the transportation industry by researching and evaluating new ways to optimize networks. Since 2004, the 3,073 SmartWay partners across the US have saved an estimated $8.1 billion in fuel costs or 65 million barrels of oil.
