We are also dedicated to reducing our carbon footprint and maintaining environmental sustainability through the following methods:

  • Smart Way Transporter: A voluntary partnership with the EPA to reduce emissions through a measurable action plan and increasing community awareness.
  • Blanket Wrapping: Although we recycle whenever possible, packing every item with materials such as cardboard and Styrofoam increases the chances of waste being produced. By completely removing these packing materials and utilizing our Blanket Wrapping System, we allow products to be transported safely and in an environmentally sustainable method that removes the packaging waste factor completely.
  • Reusable Palletizing and Crating Inventory: Specialized freight often means specialized handling and packing; which usually means increased cost to your bottom line in order to ensure safe transportation. By creating our custom skids and crates from repurposed materials, along with our Blanket Wrap System, we are able to do two important cost saving things for customers in our network, while still promoting environmental sustainability:
    • Costs are reduced by not having to create brand new packaging for every shipment
    • Damage risk and costs are virtually non-existent because products travel safely packaged with custom made, repurposed materials
  • E-Waste Recycling: Electronic waste has a tendency of becoming a business’s ball and chain, often shoved into a closet or corner and avoided. Our partnership with STI has allowed us to help customers dispose of unwanted electronic materials responsibly, sometimes receiving a credit to offset the transportation cost.
