SELDAT DISTRIBUTION INC. JOINS U.S. EPA SMARTWAY® TRANSPORTATION PARTNERSHIP
SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NEW JERSEY (August 24, 2017) – Seldat Inc., a leading provider of global supply chain solutions and technology services, has announced that it has joined the SmartWay® Transport Partnership, an innovative 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.
Seldat will contribute to the Partnership’s savings of 170.3 million barrels of oil, $24.9 billion in fuel costs, 72.8 MMT of carbon dioxide (CO2), 1,458,000 tons of nitrogen oxides, and 59,000 tons of particulate matter. This is equivalent to eliminating annual energy use in over 6 million homes. Carbon dioxide is the most common greenhouse gas, and nitrogen oxide is an air pollutant that contributes to smog. By joining the SmartWay Transport Partnership, Seldat demonstrates its strong environmental leadership and commitment to corporate responsibility.
“Seldat’s mission is to empower businesses and consumers worldwide to find, buy and sell anything without the limitations of borders and logistics challenges. With the Smart Way Partnership, we can do our part to ensure we deliver on our commitment to supply-chain freight sustainability and reduce our environmental footprint.” said Aaron Huntt, senior vice president, operations.
Developed jointly in early 2003 by EPA and Charter Partners, represented by industry stakeholders, environmental groups, American Trucking Associations, and Business for Social Responsibility, the innovative SmartWay® Transport Partnership program was launched in 2004. 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 shippers, logistics companies, truck, rail, barge, and multimodal carriers.
