Tyremaker Gets EPA Partner Nod
Yokohama Tire Corp. has been named a “partner” by the EPA SmartWay programme. Yokohama’s new partnership status is in the “shippers” category, which means that the company ships more than 50 per cent of its products on SmartWay-certified transport carriers.
According to the EPA, Yokohama’s freight efforts will contribute to the goal of eliminating 33 to 66 million metric tons of carbon dioxide and up to 200,000 tons of nitrogen oxide per year by 2012. (Tire Review/Akron)
