PR Newswire

EAGAN, Minn., Oct. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Transport America, a subsidiary of TFI International Inc. (TSX:TFII, OTCQX: TFIFF), is honored to be named a 2017 SmartWay High Performer in the category of carbon metrics by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Transport America has partnered with the EPA in an effort to improve logistics operations while reducing its environmental footprint. This award is given to carriers that haul heavy loads at high levels of fuel efficiency. Fewer than 10 percent of all SmartWay carriers operate fleets efficient enough to make the SmartWay High Performer List for carbon emissions.
