Schwan’s named SmartWay High Performer by EPA

Sept. 18, 2018 — The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently recognized Schwan’s Company subsidiary, SFC Global Supply Chain, Inc., as a 2018 SmartWay High Performer. The recognition is given to companies that achieve significant shipping and freight efficiencies based on annual emissions reports.

The EPA’s SmartWay program helps companies advance supply-chain sustainability by measuring, benchmarking and improving freight transportation efficiency.

Private Fleet Manager Kendrick Maxwell said that based on the miles the company’s long-haul fleet drove in 2017 and the fuel it consumed and purchased, it showed proficiencies in supply-chain sustainability.

To help lower emission pollution, our company added side wind skirts to the bottom of semitrailers to improve fuel mileage and began using battery-powered auxiliary units instead of diesel powered units.
