HELP FOR SMALL MAIN STREET BUSINESSES WITH GREEN SUPPLY CHAIN[Cherry Hill, NJ] – Main Street Logistics, a leading logistics provider serving small and mid-size businesses is pleased to announce that it joined the SmartWay Transport Partnership, an innovative collaboration between U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the freight industry designed to improve energy efficiency while significantly reducing greenhouse gases and air pollution.
As a 3rd party logistics provider, Main Street Logistics can now help small and mid-size companies develop and implement a comprehensive sustainable program for a green supply chain. Many small businesses have the desire to reduce their carbon footprint but have neither the staff nor the outside resources to achieve their goal. Main Street’s business is focused on giving these companies the supply chain tools and technology they need for success.
Joining SmartWay Transport Partnership, Main Street Logistics demonstrates its strong environmental leadership and corporate responsibility. “We are honored to be a SmartWay Partner. We want to do our
part as a responsible corporate citizen and are committed to the goals of SmartWay. As a 3PL provider we are responsible for the management of our carrier network and choosing carriers on behalf of our clients. We choose carriers that have demonstrated a measurable determination to reduce emission of carbon dioxide and other air pollutants. Utilizing carriers that share the same commitment to improving environmental performance as we do, is essential”, said Paul Karvois, Principal.
Launched in February 2004, the SmartWay Transport Partnership brings together major freight shippers, trucking companies, railroads, logistics companies and trade/professional associations to pursue mutually beneficial strategies that result in emissions reductions and other environmental improvements as well as cost savings to the companies. The Partnership currently has over 2,200 Partners.
Main Street Logistics is a leading logistics provider specializing in transportation services and logistics solutions to small and mid-size-Main Street businesses. Main street businesses continue to provide the fundamentals for economic growth, yet often lack the tools that large companies use to be more competitive.
