Ruan has been named a SmartWay High Performer in the truck carriers category by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). SmartWay is the EPA’s program designed to help companies advance supply chain sustainability by measuring, benchmarking, and improving freight transportation efficiency.
The SmartWay High Performer designation is given to shippers, carriers, and logistics providers who lead the way on clean freight. High Performers are determined based on freight activity, fuel use, and more information that SmartWay partners, such as Ruan, voluntarily share with the EPA. This data is divided into five performance ranges, and those recognized as SmartWay High Performers have efficiency and air quality performance that outranks other participants. Just over 2 percent of all SmartWay carriers operate fleets clean and efficient enough to be named to the SmartWay High Performers list.
Ruan has been a SmartWay member since 2014 and has been honored with the SmartWay Excellence Award numerous times. To achieve such measures, Ruan has invested in technologies to help reduce fuel use and emissions, properly dispose of and recycle materials, and reduce paper usage across all operations.
