Maximize Your Competitive Advantage

Whether conducting business on a global or local basis, individuals and companies need to seek new and innovative ways to stay ahead. Fuel pricing and efficiency are a major concern in the effort to drive down cost. The volatility of fuel pricing and associated fuel surcharges are a significant cost component for carriers and shippers. While carriers are working hard to increase their fuel efficiency, shippers are now expected to choose carriers that have a sustainability program.
To date, a standardized central source for sustainability tools to benchmark fleets has not been available. SmartWay provides these tools enabling year-over-year evaluation of your company’s progress and providing a mechanism for you to measure your company against other companies in this sector.
Through case study and presentations we will demonstrate you how you can leverage the benefits of the SmartWay® program to improve your company’s fuel consumption and best practices, enabling you to create a distinct competitive advantage.
