Rock-it Global joins the U.S. SmartWay Program

Rock-it Global, a Global Critical Logistics (GCL) company, has signed on to the SmartWay program, which helps companies advance supply chain sustainability by measuring, benchmarking, and improving freight transportation efficiency.

 

SmartWay is a collaboration between the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and industry to provide a framework to assess the environmental and energy efficiency of supply chains.

 

The SmartWay program will support Rock-it by providing a comprehensive system and tools to track, document, and share information about its freight emissions and help Rock-it reduce emissions by speeding up the implementation of fuel-saving technologies.

 

“Rock-It and the GCL family of companies are committed to driving sustainable supply chains and finding ways of collaborating with industry peers to achieve this,” said Sasha Goodman, Chief Administrative Officer, Rock-it Global.

 

“As a SmartWay partner, we will be joining close to 4,000 other partners that include shippers and other logistics companies, as well as truck, rail, barge, and multimodal carriers to achieve our common goal.”

 

Since its launch in 2004 SmartWay partners have reduced and avoided 336 million barrels of oil, USD 44.8 billion in fuel costs, 143 million metric tons of CO2, 2.7 million short tons of NOx and 112,000 short tons of particulate matter (PM).

 

This is equivalent to eliminating the annual energy use of over 21 million homes.
