C R England, a Salt Lake City UT-based global transportation provider, received the Transplace Sustainability Excellence Award at the 2011 Transplace Shipper Symposium.
The temperature-controlled carrier was awarded this honor based on top achievement, including status as a Transplace Platinum Carrier, and recognition from the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) SmartWay Transport Partnership and company sustainability accomplishments. Transplace is a non-asset-based third-party logistics (3PL) provider.
“We are proud to have received this award for two years in a row. Fuel economy and implementing more sustainable products and technologies into our fleet is a priority for C R England,” said David Kramer, the company’s executive vice-president–corporate sales.
C R England has made notable achievements through its green initiatives, including saving more than 10 million gallons of fuel from 2008 through 2010. The firm has taken significant steps to incorporate more efficient and environmentally friendly equipment and technology such as ultra-lightweight day cabs, super singles, and driver and load optimization software. It has also placed into service 53-foot refrigerated intermodal containers with 300 containers already in service, and is in the process of adding liquefied natural gas (LNG) vehicles into its fleets.
The Transplace Carrier Merit Program categorizes carriers into tiers based on strict and demanding performance factors.

•Hauled at least 1,500 loads for Transplace
