Somerset, NJ (December 3, 2019) – Budd Van Lines today announced that they have been certified
under the SmartWay Transport Partnership, a unique and innovative collaboration between U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and industry carriers that provides a framework to assess the
environmental and energy efficiency of goods movement supply chains.
Budd Van Lines will contribute to the Partnership’s savings of 279.7 million barrels of oil, $37.5 billion in
fuel costs and 134 million tons of air pollutants. This is equivalent to eliminating annual energy use in
over 18.2 million homes. By joining the SmartWay Transport Partnership, Budd Van Lines demonstrates
its strong environmental leadership and corporate responsibility.
“The SmartWay Transport Partnership is the next step toward greener industry practices for Budd Van
Lines,” shares Vice President of Business Integration Tom Torcomian. “We know that our industry faces
challenges when it comes to environmental sustainability, and it’s our responsibility to make sure our
equipment helps reduce environmental impact whenever possible. The EPA’s SmartWay guidelines are
an invaluable tool and we are proud to be recognized as one of the household goods carriers meeting
Developed jointly in early 2003 by EPA and Charter Partners represented by industry stakeholders,
environmental groups, American Trucking Associations, and Business for Social Responsibility, this
innovative program was launched in 2004. Partners rely upon SmartWay tools and approaches to track
and reduce emissions and fuel use from goods movement. The Partnership currently has over 3,000
partners including logistics companies, shipper, truck, rail, barge, and multimodal carriers.
