​TransAm Honored With 2019 Smartway Excellence Award

December 2019

Olathe, KS… The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently honored TransAm Trucking with a prestigious SmartWay® Excellence Award. This award is given annually to companies identified as industry leaders in freight supply chain environmental performance and energy efficiency. TransAm Trucking has collaborated with MHC Kenworth to custom-engineer a fuel-efficient and low-emission Kenworth Fleet.

“We are pleased and honored that our performance has been recognized through the EPA’s SmartWay Excellence Award. Our partnership with MHC Kenworth has allowed us to construct a fleet that is focused on conserving energy and lowering greenhouse emissions. TransAm takes deep pride in our progress within the industry and fully recognizes the importance of protecting our environment in doing so,” said TransAm Trucking President Russ McElliott. “Through this program, the EPA seeks out companies that inspire others within the commercial freight industry that utilize innovative technologies and business practices that save fuel, cut costs, and further protect the environment. It is with great pride, and not lightly, that TransAm receives this recognition.”

The EPA SmartWay Partnership honored its 2019 awardees at this year’s American Trucking Association’s Management Conference and Exhibition in San Diego, Calif., on October 7, 2019. The organization works with companies to improve freight transportation efficiency, assess and measure performance, lower air emissions and save money. TransAm was one of 55 truck and multimodal carriers chosen for this distinction out of SmartWay’s 3,700 partners. These companies are leading the industry in implementing innovative ways to reduce fuel costs and minimize impact on the environment.
