ITASCA, Ill. — Four divisions of Hendrickson — Truck Suspension Systems, Trailer Suspension Systems, Auxiliary Axle Systems, and Bumper and Trim — recently joined the U.S. EPA SmartWay program.

SmartWay is a collaboration between the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the freight industry, designed to increase energy efficiency while significantly reducing greenhouse gases and air pollution.

Hendrickson plans to contribute to SmartWay’s goal to reduce 33 to 66 million metric tons of carbon dioxide and up to 200,000 tons of nitrogen oxide per year by 2012 by improving the environmental performance of our freight operations.

"We are excited to be a partner with SmartWay Transport and to continue in doing our part to achieve our collective goal of reducing greenhouse gases and air pollution," said Baine Adams, vice-president of global sales and marketing at Hendrickson.

Launched in February 2004, the SmartWay Transport Partnership aims to achieve fuel savings of up to 150 million barrels of fuel per year. SmartWay currently has over 1800 partners.
