KOOL PAK°® and Polar Express Transportation are SmartWay Transport Partners. Being SmartWay certified means we're helping businesses reduce their carbon footprint by moving frozen, refrigerated and dry goods more sustainably, lowering emissions and improving freight efficiency.
As part of our commitment to fleet safety and efficiency, KOOL PAK° earned the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) SmartWay™ Transport Partnership certification in 2011. Polar Express Transportation achieved certification in 2013. To earn SmartWay certification requires an extensive commitment to meet environmental compliance requirements and benchmarks that prove reduced energy consumption, improved efficiency and less air pollution. At both locations, we've incorporated several measures that include installation of APUs in all tractors for efficient heating and cooling to minimize idling time; popular Driver Incentive programs that reduce pollution by decreasing speed, lowering RPMs and idling time; installing aerodynamic bumpers, mirrors and low-rolling resistance tires.
Safe throughout the Cold Chain
We support the SmartWay program because it's good for the environment and good for shippers and customers who embrace green initiatives. KOOL PAK° continues to actively incorporate cost-effective practices and technologies into our freight transport operations to ensure customers' temperature-controlled shipments are safe throughout the cold chain.
