Charleston port named on sustainability list

A logistics trade magazine chose the S.C. State Ports Authority and Port of Charleston for its global 75 Green Supply Chain Partners list, according to a news release from the port.

Inbound Logistics noted the port’s Pledge for Growth environmental program, which includes more than $12 million in environmental and community projects. The program also calls for collaboration among private and public industries on projects to reduce emissions from trucks, port equipment and ships, such as an environmental initiative announced last week at the port.

On June 28, the Environmental Protection Agency announced the start of a nationwide environmental initiative from the port.

The SmartWay Drayage Initiative targets drayage trucks, or vehicles that move goods a short distance, such as from a port to a distribution center. Drayage trucks are generally older and emit more pollution.

Inbound Logistics selected a total of five ports for its list — the port of Long Beach and Los Angeles in California, the Port of Tacoma (Wash.) and the North Carolina State Ports Authority, in addition to the SPA. The list makes note of “supply chain visionaries who every day demonstrate their commitment to sustainability,” according to the release.
