C.H. Robinson Worldwide, Inc., a global third-party logistics provider, has joined with Cascade Sierra Solutions (CSS) to help motor carriers reduce fuel consumption and carbon emissions. CSS is a non-profit organization, which identifies, promotes and finances the use of clean technology for heavy-duty diesel engines. It provides energy-efficient products, regulatory advice, installation contracting and coordination, and below-market financing. The new arrangement calls for C.H. Robinson to provide financial support and promote CSS services to its network of more than 45,000 contract motor carriers in North America. At the same time, C.H. Robinson will invite its customers to participate in the newly developed C.H. Robinson-CSS Customer Match Program, which matches a percentage of C.H. Robinson's eligible customer donations to CSS. CSS promotes participation in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's SmartWay technology program for truckers, which includes idle reduction, improved aerodynamics, exhaust filtration and more efficient tires. The group also works to replace the oldest, dirtiest trucks with new and cleaner equipment.
