Santa Monica, CA. Ocotober, 16, 2013-CaseStack, a leading provider of third-party logistics services, announced today that they have received the SmartWay Transport Partnership certification for the fourth consecutive year. The SmartWay Transport program is an innovative collaboration between the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and commercial, industrial and public sector organizations designed to significantly reduce greenhouse gases and air pollution.
The market-driven partnership aims tohelp businesses move goods in the cleanest most efficient way possible. Since 2004, SmartWay partners have eliminated 51.6 million metric tons of CO2, resulting in savings of 120.7 million barrels of oil and $16.8 billion in fuel costs.

This extensive online tool quantifies the actions companies are taking to save fuel and reduce emissions, provides estimates of how much emissions a company can eliminate, tracks a fleets baseline performance in order to help plan for the future.
Sustainability is an inherent and ever-present aspect of CaseStack’s efficiency-based business model, with “going green” as the foundation of cost-effective supply chain solutions. CaseStack’s consolidation and transportation solutions are based on a common sense model – combine LTL shipments into a cost-saving full truckload, help streamline packaging, build partnerships with efficient carriers and eliminate waste from the ordering and tracking process. CaseStack achieves this goal through various programs, including the Retailer Consolidation Program, a Cost Savings and Emissions Calculator and a proprietary technology platform that integrates and streamlines the supply chain management process.
