OnTrac, a logistics company specializing in contracting small parcel shipping services in the Western United States, continues its commitment to track and report its carbon accounting practices for a sixth consecutive year. Freight transportation is one of the fastest growing impacts on the environment and as consumer demand increases, we are committed to respond with the most efficient and cleaner transportation practices.

OnTrac is a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) SmartWay® Transport Partner. EPA recently approved our annual submission of Partnership reporting requirements for 2017. OnTrac joined the SmartWay initiative in 2012. Each year performance data is submitted and reviewed to qualify as a SmartWay partner.

OnTrac Director of Fleet Operations Steve Heron says, “OnTrac is committed to SmartWay for the long haul. We understand that taking care of the earth will forever be a crucial business practice and that is why OnTrac has dedicated resources to reduce our footprint through our operations and facilities.”

SmartWay is a voluntary and cost-free program that supports companies’ initiatives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from freight supply chain transportation activities. Operational strategies, data management tools and verified technology supports are provided. The SmartWay Partnership is a domestic and international freight and supply chain program that manages data for over 3500 partners across all domestic shipping modes in the US and Canada. SmartWay implements its goals to lower freight carbon footprints by conducting analysis and research of freight impacts, engaging with freight experts, anticipating and responding to trends, developing strategic resources and communication strategies, and serving as an international model. International collaborations exist with Mexico, China and other Asian nations, Europe, and Latin America.

“OnTrac knows that partnering with SmartWay is good for business, people and the environment,” says Cheryl Bynum, U.S. EPA’s SmartWay Director, “By partnering with us, OnTrac is demonstrating their commitment to sustainability through cleaner, lower carbon goods movement.”
