Once again, Epes Transport System has been awarded the prestigious 2018 North Carolina Smart Fleet Champion award, presented by North Carolina Clean Energy Technology Center, which is affiliated with the NC State University School of Engineering. With the focus of the entire trucking industry on reducing our carbon footprint, Epes is again being recognized at the highest achievement level in the State of North Carolina by one of the most forward-thinking clean fuel organizations in the country.
The award was presented to Epes representative David Leik by the NC DOT, in Durham, NC, photo alongside. The awards luncheon attendees hailed from not only the Southeast but across the United States, from as far away as California. The luncheon and awards were presented at the final session of the 2018 Sustainable Fleet Technology Conference and Expo, held in the downtown Durham Convention Center. Epes is pleased that our sustainable and carbon-footprint initiatives have again been recognized in such a public way.
In addition, Epes has also recently been recognized, again, by the Green Fleets Forum, based in San Francisco, CA, as Honorable Mention as one of the Top 100 Fleets in America, for 2018. Mike Glynn of Epes spearheaded the reporting that led to this recognition and is seen with the award in the accompanying photo.
It’s good to be green!
