Based in Burr Ridge, Ill., Dillon Logistics has provided transportation services for more than 30 years, company officials said in a press release.
According to Joann Stephens, SmartWay Excellence Award Coordinator, the recognition is reserved for the top performing SmartWay Partners. It is the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) highest award for outstanding initiative in freight, supply chain, energy and environmental performance, Stephens said.
“Achieving the 2019 SmartWay Excellence Award illustrates our commitment to supporting green initiatives as well as pioneering environmentally friendly alternatives in our industry,” said Charles Musgrove, president of Dillon Logistics. “Hauling for our customers is a responsibility and privilege we take seriously, and this award solidifies our pledge.”
As stated on SmartWay’s website, the Excellence Award winners are selected based on their annual freight assessment and emissions tracking tool submissions. Winners were honored in early October at the American Trucking Associations (ATA) Management Conference and Exhibition in San Diego, Calif.
Founded in 1980, Dillon Logistics operates 10 facilities located across the Mid-west, South and Southeast.
“Dillon Logistic’s mission is to deliver reliable logistic services to customers in a safe and positive culture while exceeding the expectations of stakeholders,’’ the company said.
