PITTSBURGH, PA – October 2020 – Elite Transit Solutions (ELITE), a recognized leader in revolutionizing the freight management logistics industry through technology solutions, today announced that it has submitted and received approval for its 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. ELITE has participated in the SmartWay® partnership for the past four years.
ELITE will continue to contribute to the Partnership’s savings of 279.7 million barrels of oil, $37.5 billion in fuel costs and 134 million tons of air pollutants. This is the equivalent of the annual electricity use in 18.2 million homes. By joining SmartWay Transport Partnership, ELITE demonstrates its strong environmental leadership and corporate responsibility.
“ELITE’s Chameleon TMS platform software technologies allow for participation through our efficient access to carrier data. This control over data allows us to be selective about vetting carriers that are “green providers,” and ELITE can effectively track SmartWay® carriers, which contributes to reducing emissions through routing efficiencies,” said Michael D. Johnson, president and CEO of Elite Transit.
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.
