Logistic Dynamics, Inc. (LDi) a Buffalo, New York, based third party logistics provider announced today that it has submitted and had approved their 2013 data update with the SmartWay Transport Partnership, an innovative collaboration between U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and industry. The SmartWay Transport Partnership provides a framework to assess the environmental and energy efficiency of goods movement supply chains.
Logistic Dynamics will continue to contribute to the Partnership’s savings of 120.7 million barrels of oil, $16.8 billion in fuel costs, 51.6 MMT of carbon dioxide (CO2), 738,000 tons of nitrogen oxides and 37,000 tons of particulate matter. This equals taking 10 million cars off the road. Carbon dioxide is the most common greenhouse gas, and nitrogen oxide is an air pollutant that contributes to smog. By joining SmartWay Transport Partnership, LDi demonstrates its strong environmental leadership and corporate responsibility.
“We are honored to be a SmartWay Transport Partner,” stated LDi Vice President Evan Gaskill. “LDi is fully committed to the SmartWay program by being responsible in how we manage our carrier network and choosing carriers that have demonstrated a marked reduction in carbon dioxide emissions and other air pollutants. The SmartWay program was a natural next step for us in our continuous efforts to minimize our own environmental impact while delivering world-class transportation and logistics services.”
