The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is honoring five Iowa truck carriers, logistics providers and freight shippers as industry leaders in supply chain, environmental and energy efficiency with its annual SmartWay Excellence Awards. The five Iowa companies are among 72 Partner awardees announced today in a virtual award ceremony hosted by EPA. The Iowa awardees are CRST Dedicated Services Inc., Cedar Rapids; CRST Expedited Inc., Cedar Rapids; Decker Truck Line, Fort Dodge; Heartland Express Inc. of Iowa, North Liberty; and Ruan Transportation Management Systems Inc., Des Moines. The awardees represent the top-performing, environmentally responsible SmartWay Partners that move more goods, with lower emissions and less energy. “Freight partners have a direct impact on all our region’s communities as they provide an essential service to our citizens,” said Acting EPA Region 7 Administrator Edward Chu. “We commend them for their voluntary environmental vigilance and invite other companies to join them in helping tackle the climate crisis.”
