Asset Based Intermodal Joins U.S. EPA SmartWay Transport Partnership
Asset Based Intermodal, Inc. has joined the SmartWay Transport Partnership, a collaboration between the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and industry that provides a framework to assess the environmental and energy efficiency of goods movement supply chains.
The partnership has generated savings of 170.3 million barrels of oil, $24.9 billion in fuel costs, 72.8 MMT of carbon dioxide, nealy 1.5 million tons of nitrogen oxides, and 59,000 tons of particulate matter. This is the equivalent to eliminating annual energy use in over six million homes.
By joining SmartWay, Asset Based Intermodal, Inc. demonstrates its strong environmental leadership and corporate responsibility.
“The SmartWay Partnership ties our organization’s mission with partnership goals, and reaffirms that our organization will do its part as a responsible corporate citizen and contribute to the reduction of emissions,” said Craig Ingram, the owner of the company.
Developed jointly in early 2003 by EPA and industry stakeholders, environmental groups, the American Trucking Associations, and Business for Social Responsibility, the partnership was launched in 2004. Partners rely upon SmartWay tools and approaches to track and reduce emissions and fuel use from the movement of goods. The partnership currently has over 3,000 members including shippers, logistics companies, and truck, rail, barge, and multimodal carriers.
Asset Based Intermodal, Inc. is a family-owned and operated intermodal drayage company in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and serves a four-state region of Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, and New Mexico on the Union Pacific, Kansas City Southern, and Burlington Northern Santa Fe networks.
