Jetco Renews with The U.S. EPA Smartway® Transport Partnership 

HOUSTON, TX – Jetco today announced that it has submitted and received approval for their current data submission to 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. 

Jetco has proudly participated in the Partnership since 2012, and will continue to contribute to the Partnership’s savings of 379 million barrels of oil, $52 billion on fuel costs and 162 million metric tons of CO2, 2.8 million short tons of NOx and 114,000 short tons of PM. This is the equivalent of the annual electricity use in 24 million homes. By joining SmartWay Transport Partnership, Jetco demonstrates its strong environmental leadership and corporate responsibility. 

“Sustainability and environmental responsibility are key initiatives for both us and our clients. Our continued participation in the SmartWay Transport Partnership reflects our ongoing focus on safety, smart fleet management and working with industry partners and clients towards a sustainable future,” said Jetco President Kyle Kristynik.  

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 nearly 4,000 Partners including shippers, logistics companies, and truck, rail, barge, and multimodal carriers.
