NOTABLE ACHIEVEMENTS Lynden is the first Alaska-based transportation company to be recognized by SmartWay (2008) and the first trucking company to earn the Green Star Award for Alaskan businesses. The company was also named Contributor of the Year by Alaskans for Litter Prevention and Recycling for its recycling e¥orts.
United Nations Global Compact, the World Resources Institute, and the World Wide Fund for Nature. Lufthansa Cargo also received an award from the journal Verkehrsrundschau for its multi-company Green Mobility trainee program, where Master’s graduates can work on solutions toward more sustainable, future-oriented action within logistics and mobility.
Lufthansa Cargo AG www.lufthansa-cargo.com/green Lufthansa Cargo has completed its fleet rollover from the MD11F and operates a single B777F freighter fleet with an average age of 5.2 years. After this rollover, Lufthansa achieved a 52% fuel eciency increase in the past 25 years. Three B777Fs and seven new- generation B777-8Fs will add further capacity and eciency for both the short and long term. To reach its goal of halving CO2 emissions by 2030 and achieving CO2 neutrality by 2050, Lufthansa Cargo is deploying new technology throughout its fleet such as “sharkskin” on aircraft, light nets in handling, sustainable aviation fuel, and other innovations. As an add-on service, Lufthansa customers can opt to minimize CO2 emissions if desired, allowing for additional reduction in greenhouse gases. Lufthansa recently completed its 100th biofuel flight, and also signed an acceptance agreement with refineries and customers for future-oriented electricity-based aviation fuels.

Marten Transport www.marten.com
Marten reduces overall mileage via internal equipment changes, temperature initiatives, network restructuring, and multimodal carrier conversions from truckload to intermodal, reducing carbon footprint by more than 60% per load. The carrier created the Loading Warm & Reefer Run initiative using temperature technology to educate customers and reduce reefer usage. Marten has added solar panels at all 14 terminals and on tractors, has converted all lighting to LED, and has installed a lithium battery bank at its Jurupa Valley, California, terminal. GREEN INITIATIVES • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions • Use alternative fuels/energy sources • Reduce energy usage • Solar panels • Energy-ecient lighting NOTABLE ACHIEVEMENT Marten has made the Smartway High Performance list year after year for improving freight eciency. The company has also been awarded Pioneer in Intermodal Development from CSX, Energy Eciency Leader from Thermo King, and the most Progressive Carrier of the Year from Coca-Cola.
Despite operating in some of the most steep terrain and extreme conditions, Lynden’s fleets consistently score among the most ecient in the nation in terms of CO2 per ton mile as measured by SmartWay. Lynden’s bulk tanker company consistently scores in the top 1% of tanker carriers in the nation for low carbon monoxide, nitrous oxide, and particulate matter emissions per ton mile. Lynden also redesigned its locations for energy eciency, including replacing more than 100 propane forklifts with electric models. Lynden’s procedures and equipment are designed to prevent accidental spills and manage stormwater pollution. All trucks and planes are designed with aerodynamic features to reduce drag, and more than 80% of the fleet is less than five years old.
