AGT Global Logistics is committed to sustainable business practices which provide our clients with a competitive edge and conserve natural resources. Our pledge each and every day is to keep our clients’ world turning. Central to that commitment is ensuring that we minimize environmental impacts.
Beyond our ongoing business practices, we are proud advocates for public policies that increase the availability of low- and zero-emission energy sources. The ongoing transition to a clean energy economy is one that we passionately support.
Many of our clients operate at the forefront of the transition to the new energy economy, continuously innovating and expanding the availability of clean energy sources. As critical members of their supply chain, we hold ourselves to the highest standard when it comes to transporting materials on their behalf with the lowest environmental impact possible.
Sustainable Client Services
As a transportation provider, the most impactful way to conserve natural resources is through minimizing carbon emissions during transport.
AGT Global Logistics has been an official “Smartway Partner” since 2009. The Smartway Program is a public-private initiative to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution created by freight transportation in corporate supply chains.
More than 89% of our carriers are also Smartway participants. Each year, we commit to moving more freight and having a greater percentage of carriers who commit to Smartway practices. Today, more than 70% of the freight moved by AGT Global Logistics is handled by Smartway carriers. By 2018, we are committed to attaining 80% achievement by the same metric.
Serving clients in the nuclear, power, and utility industries we constantly evaluate our commitment to supporting clean energy. Today, 80% of our overall workload serves the energy industry. Roughly 70% of that total workload serves the distribution of clean energy. By 2018, we are committed to increasing the percentage of energy related work that fosters adoption of clean energy sources.
