EPA'S SMARTWAY TRANSPORT PARTNERSHIP

Smarter Way LogoRoseburg has been accepted as a shipper/transport partner in the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) SmartWay Transport Partnership. The EPA partnership is a voluntary partnership between shippers and carriers to help increase awareness and efficiency of energy usage and reduce the carbon footprint created by manufacturers and their carrier partners. SmartWay partners are required to evaluate their environmental impact using a model that measures a company’s carbon footprint. The model takes into account whether a shipper uses SmartWay certified carriers, the extent of rail and intermodal transport, and equipment practices within the shipper’s own facilities. Roseburg’s score was well above the requirement.
