September 22, 2008

SEVILLE, OH – Panther Expedited Services, Inc., an independent provider of premium logistics services in North America, has joined the SmartWay Transport Partnership. The SmartWay Partnership is a voluntary collaboration between the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the freight industry designed to increase energy efficiency while significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution.

"Panther Expedites Services join the Partnership in a commitment to increase fuel efficiency and make freight-related environmental improvements," said Margo T. Oge, director of the Office of Transportation and Air Quality, EPA.

Carrier members of the SmartWay Partnership agree to measure fleet environmental performance using EPA's Freight Logistics Environmental and Energy Tracking (FLEET) Performance Model, develop a three-year action plan to improve environmental metrics, and provide an annual report on action plan progress. Panther will contribute to the Partnership's goal to achieve fuel savings of up to 150 million barrels of fuel per year.
