To recognize industry leaders in freight supply chain environmental performance and energy efficiency, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has again honored carriers throughout the U.S. with its SmartWay® Excellence Award.

Since 2009, D&D Transportation has been a member of the industry-leading U.S. EPA SmartWay Transport Partnership, and 2015 marks its first year receiving the SmartWay® Excellence Award. “For the past decade, we have been committed to reducing overhead and improving productivity for our customers while lowering greenhouse gas emissions,” said Jennifer Graves, D&D Vice President. “And now we’re proud to be among the few carriers in the nation to receive this prestigious award.”
D&D Transportation was one of only 39 truck carriers in the U.S. to receive this distinction, representing the best environmental performers of SmartWay’s nearly 3000 Partners. The carrier Excellence Awardees were honored at American Trucking Association's Annual Management Conference & Exhibition held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on October 19, 2015.
