Transportation leader among top performers participating in EPA SmartWay program
Schneider (NYSE: SNDR), a premier multimodal provider of transportation, intermodal and logistics services, has again been recognized by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a SmartWay High Performer, leading the industry in producing more efficient and sustainable supply chain transportation solutions. The EPA SmartWay program is voluntary and focuses on advancing supply chain sustainability by measuring, benchmarking and improving freight transportation efficiency.
While thousands of companies partner with the EPA through SmartWay, just over 2% of all SmartWay carriers make the SmartWay High Performer list for all metrics. According to the data, Schneider operates an exceptionally efficient and clean fleet, emitting fewer pollutants and burning less fuel per mile traveled and for every ton of freight moved, as compared to SmartWay peers.
Schneider is committed to a number of environmental and sustainability goals, including doubling intermodal business by 2030, reducing carbon emissions by 7.5% per mile by 2025 and by 60% per mile by 2035. The carrier has already achieved more than half of its 2025 goal by reducing per-mile emissions by 5%.
Schneider uses new technologies, equipment and data science to push efficiency. In early 2023, the company will add 92 battery-electric vehicles (BEVs) to its intermodal operations in southern California, making Schneider one of the largest electric truck fleets in North America.
Leveraging digital tools and on-the-ground expertise, Schneider associates work with customers to review network optimization, reduce empty miles, consolidate freight and pick the right mode of transportation.
