27 Aug Become a SmartWay Approved Carrier with Mactrans Logistics
Today’s logistics providers face an important obstacle — How can we fulfill the needs of freight shipping clients while prioritizing environmentally-conscious practices? How can we, as logistics professionals, establish best practices that satisfy client expectations and the continued evolution of industry standards, as well as long-term sustainability?
Fortunately, SmartWay helps carriers, shippers and logistics providers achieve precisely this goal. SmartWay is a powerful, North American network that benefits retailers, manufacturers, and all shippers looking to reduce their carbon footprint by connecting them with fuel-efficient logistics providers to ship their goods.
With the demand for heightened service as well as enhanced accountability and transparency from companies with respect to their supply chain, SmartWay works to help companies reduce their fuel consumption, and emissions. SmartWay approved carriers effectively measure, benchmark, and track their shipping practices to ensure environmentally conscious efforts are made throughout the entire supply chain. The SmartWay program helps carriers to demonstrate their efficiency achievements while providing a certifiable roadmap to the future of sustainable transportation services.
At Mactrans, our mandate has always been to manage the transportation supply chain with enhanced efficiency and transparency, while bringing best-in-class service to our clients. With this in mind, we became an official SmartWay logistics partner in 2019. Today, we are proud to announce that our membership has been approved and renewed for 2020.
When shippers partner with a SmartWay approved logistics provider like Mactrans all freight managed by Mactrans will contribute to their SmartWay quota.
As we continue to evolve our business and look to the future, we are actively encouraging more of our carriers to become SmartWay approved. SmartWay certified carriers will benefit from reduced emissions and operating costs, while differentiating their business, demonstrating, environmental stewardship to stakeholders, and playing a vital role in making the freight transportation supply chain more sustainable.
