Werner Earns SmartTag High Performer Award for Seventh Consecutive Year

 A premier transportation and logistics provider, has proudly earned the 2023 SmartTag High Performer Award for the seventh consecutive year. Werner was the only carrier to receive recognition for five different classes in the category for carbon emissions.

The SmartWay High Performer Award recognizes companies who lead the freight industry in producing more efficient and sustainable supply chain transportation solutions. SmartWay High Performers are SmartWay Partners whose efficiency and air quality performance fall within the top-ranked performance range.

“I’m very proud of the work we are accomplishing at Werner and how it positively impacts our customers and the communities we operate in,” said Werner’s Associate Vice President of Sustainability and Sales Operations, Shawntell Kroese. “This recognition from the EPA is a great honor and validation of our efforts in reducing emissions and creating long-lasting, industry-wide impacts.”

According to the EPA, fewer than 10 percent of all SmartWay carriers operate fleets efficient enough to make the SmartWay High Performer list for carbon emissions. Werner has committed to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by 55 percent by 2035. The company is actively piloting and testing sustainable truck models, alternative energy and fuel options and other solutions to increase fuel efficiency.
