How to Benefit from Greening Freight Transportation

10:10 AM  -  11:10 AM, Wednesday, May 25, 2016  |  Executive Boardroom

Transportation and freight demand in the U.S. is on the rise, global commerce is expanding and public awareness of the environmental impacts of transportation continues to increase. This panel will address how these trends are compelling organizations to more closely assess their shipping operations and transportation procurement practices, and discover opportunities to move goods using less fuel and generate fewer emissions.

The panel also will address the U.S. EPA SmartWay program, including the tools and resources that help companies track, document and share information about freight emissions and fuel use across the supply chain. Panelists will discuss the practices and policies their organizations have implemented to hire greener freight carriers, employ more efficient operational strategies, track progress and improve transportation sustainability.
