World-class logistics provider accepted into SmartWay Transport Partnership

Brookfield, Wis.–April 29, 2013–Evans Transportation Services is proud to announce its acceptance into the Environmental Protection Agency’s SmartWay Transport Partnership. The third-party logistics provider’s existing world-class performance measures aligns well with SmartWay’s strict eco-criteria for improving fuel efficiency, accelerating environmental performance, and increasing supply-chain sustainability.

“Evans works diligently with customers and carrier partners to optimize transport mode, load and routes, as well as calculate shipments’ CO2 emissions,” Evans CEO Don Cox says. “Our partnership with the EPA’s SmartWay program formalizes our commitment to demonstrated eco-compliance, which reduces unnecessary mileage and shipments leading to reduced green house gas emissions and shipping costs.”

SmartWay aligns well with many of our customers’ established sustainability programs, Cox adds, and it streamlines and aligns our ability to work with customers forming new sustainability programs. Evans already works with more than 350 SmartWay certified carrier partners.

“We’re thrilled the EPA recognized our industry performance in streamlining our customers’ freight movements,” Evans Director of Operations Wayne Ashley says. “We are a service-driven organization with people and processes in place to ensure we remain beyond compare in providing a customer experience that’s efficient and effective in achieving our customers’ and partner carriers’ goals.”

Evans’ continuous development and implementation of new technology within its operating system has led to managing more transactions for customers than ever before, with fewer mistakes. Technology, coupled with a disciplined approach, allows Evans to determine the optimal carrier based on cost, service and specific customer requirements.
