For the second consecutive year, Meijer was named a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency SmartWay Excellence Award winner in two categories simultaneously, as a shipper and carrier.
Meijer was recognized as a shipping partner in 2017 and 2018 and as a carrier partner in 2018.
The SmartWay Excellence Award recognizes retail and manufacturing carriers and shippers that demonstrate how their logistical operations make a measurable difference in reducing carbon emissions while also effectively managing fuel costs.
“We are honored to receive such a distinguished award that speaks volumes to the work our logistics team does day after day,” said Tom McCall, Meijer vp/logistics. “Our team diligently works to monitor and improve the efficiency of our fleet with the mission to minimize our carbon footprint across the Midwest.”
