October is recognized as National Energy Awareness Month, but IWCO Direct works year-round to reduce our energy consumption. Our commitment to sustainability impacts all areas of our supply chain—from paper and ink suppliers to the transportation of direct mail pieces.
Today, we want to highlight our relationship with King Solutions, our third party logistics provider whose SmartWay certification aligns with our commitment to sustainability and ensures that our customers’ direct mail is transported in an environmentally sustainable way.
By working with King Solutions, IWCO Direct can distribute and transport direct mail pieces with the smallest possible carbon footprint that current technologies allow.
Here is some more information about the SmartWay Partnership drives more sustainable transportation.
SmartWaysm Transport Partnership is a collaborative program developed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the freight transportation industry. Established in 2004, SmartWay encourages reduced fuel consumption and carbon emissions, as well as improved fuel efficiency and performance in the transportation sector.
As a SmartWay certified provider, King Solutions’ top-rated score proves that their internal best practices and the practices of the carriers they choose meet the rigorous standards established by the EPA, including fuel consumption. King Solutions’ SmartWay scores are based on the fuel efficiency of the carriers’ fleets as well as the investments the carriers make in technology to improve fuel efficiency and reduce carbon emissions, like wind resistance technology.
Working with King Solutions is just another way IWCO Direct helps to advance the direct mail industry’s sustainability efforts. Read more articles to learn how our other suppliers are making an impact.
