At Freight Right, we value our success, appreciate the future, but never forget where we came from. We believe in giving back to the most vulnerable by sharing a small portion of our success with them.
In the past years, we have made annual monetary contributions to orphanages in still-developing countries around the world. This has been done to provide basic necessities, education, and healthcare for orphaned children.
The U.S. trucking industry alone contributes about 5.57 percent of total greenhouse gas emissions, which makes for 1.6 billion metric tons of CO2 per year. Being in such an industry that so-heavily affects the environment around us, we at Freight Right have decided to do our part in reducing our carbon footprint by replacing it with green alternatives.
Despite its costly nature, we prioritize the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) SmartWay partnered carriers to partner with for our freight-forwarding services. In addition, we are in the process of becoming a SmartWay partner to voluntarily and directly report to the EPA, in order to improve sustainability within our field of operations.
