MCDONOUGH, GEORGIA., (October 7, 2020) – Bennett Heavy & Specialized, LLC (BHS), a division of the Bennett Family of Companies, is pleased to be recognized as a 2020 SmartWay High Performer with the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for their ranking on carbon emissions.
Fewer than 10 percent of all SmartWay carriers operate fleets efficient enough to make the SmartWay High Performer list for carbon emissions and BHS is now included on the list.
According to the U.S. EPA website, carbon is a leading indicator of fuel use, meaning that SmartWay High Performers for carbon also consume less fuel for every mile they travel and for every ton of freight they move. For example, for every trip they make, high performing SmartWay truckload carriers for carbon move heavier loads, packing their trailers more efficiently – and still consume thousands of gallons of less fuel annually, as compared to their SmartWay peers.
“We are proud to be recognized as a 2020 SmartWay High Performer with the United States EPA. This award shows our customers that we continue to focus on our core value of safety and as a carrier are dedicated to protecting our beautiful planet,” said Tony Eiermann, Vice President Fleet Management with Bennett Family of Companies.
