SmartWay Partner TransAm Trucking

This extends from the way that trucking companies and drivers handle fuel use to driver behavior. In addition, these trucking companies are partners with the SmartWay Program. They are provided with the latest technology and equipment for making the most of the fuel economy per mile. Companies like SmartWay are all about handling this technology and equipment so they can improve their ROI.

For every gallon of diesel saved, this, in turn, saves money for carriers. TransAm and other companies can turn that money around into trucking benefits and salary bonuses. In fact, this is one of the ways these companies keep booming in any economic strain. They are positioned to offer the latest technology and equipment to save money for each and every mile run by drivers.

About the SmartWay Excellence Award

As such, it is a great honor to provide TransAm with the SmartWay Excellence Award. Via TransAm Trucking, Inc. President Russ McElliott, “We are pleased and honored that our performance has been recognized through the EPA’s SmartWay Excellence Award. Our partnership with MHC Kenworth has allowed us to construct a fleet that is focused on conserving energy and lowering greenhouse emissions. TransAm takes deep pride in our progress within the industry and fully recognizes the importance of protecting our environment in doing so.”

McElliott continued, “Through this program, the EPA seeks out companies that inspire others within the commercial freight industry that utilize innovative technologies and business practices that save fuel, cut costs, and further protect the environment. It is with great pride, and not lightly, that TransAm receives this recognition.”
