2019 marks the 9th year LDI has been a SmartWay Transport Partner. LDI will continue to contribute to the Partnership’s savings of 248.9 million barrels of oil, $33.4 billion in fuel costs and 119 million tons of air pollutants.  This is the equivalent of the annual electricity use in 16 million homes. By joining SmartWay Transport Partnership, LDI demonstrates its strong environmental leadership and corporate responsibility.

“We have had a commitment to the SmartWay partnership since it started in 2004 and will continue to improve our logistics operations so we can continue to reduce our environmental footprint.” said Mike Cannistra, COO.

Developed jointly in early 2003 by EPA and Charter Partners represented by industry stakeholders, environmental groups, American Trucking Associations, and Business for Social Responsibility, this innovative program celebrated its 10 year anniversary in 2014. Partners rely upon SmartWay tools and approaches to track and reduce emissions and fuel use from goods movement. The Partnership currently has over 3,000 Partners including shipper, logistics companies, truck, rail, barge, and multimodal carriers.
