Operating two locations in Arizona, GlobalTranz provides freight management and logistical services to thousands of clients throughout the United States. To further its commitment to environmental protection, GlobalTranz became a member of the SmartWay Transport Partnership (STP) in 2016.

In addition to helping freight companies achieve their current sustainability goals, the STP has created the SmartWay Vision 2020 initiative based on feedback from STP members. The initiative has four key components.

1. Complete coverage. SmartWay will leverage its monitoring and emissions assessment tools to cover all forms of freight transport, from trains and trucks to barges, planes, and marine vessels.

2. Information exchange. By acting as a neutral platform, SmartWay will provide those in the industry access to information via educational tools, speaking events, case studies, peer reviews, and best practices guidelines.

3. Sustainability reporting. Drawing from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s standards, SmartWay will ensure its emissions reporting tools provide reliable data to serve the needs of the freight transportation sector.

4. Global collaboration. SmartWay will promote standardization of emissions accounting technology and methods by partnering with and serving as a template for other associations around the world.
