WASHINGTON, Aug. 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has recently approved Infinity Transportation Logistics, LLC. (ITL) as a SmartWay Transport Partner for reducing fuel consumption and carbon emissions.
Launched by the EPA in 2004, SmartWay Transport Partnership promotes environmentally cleaner, more fuel efficient transportation options, and is an innovative collaboration between the EPA and the freight industry to voluntarily achieve improved fuel efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution from freight transport. In particular, SmartWay identifies products and services that reduce transportation-related emissions. Participating companies (such as ITL) benchmark their current freight operations, identify technologies and strategies to reduce their carbon emissions, track emissions reductions and project future improvement. SmartWay Partners demonstrate to customers, clients, and investors that they are taking responsibility for the emissions associated with freight movement, are committed to corporate social responsibility and sustainable business practices, and are reducing their carbon footprint.
The SmartWay program is beneficial for Infinity Transportation Logistics (ITL) and its customers, as it helps to reduce fuel consumption, saves money, and has a positive impact on the environment. As a result, Infinity Transportation Logistics is highly committed to this partnership and is working to further improve fuel-efficiency and emission control technologies for its intermodal container fleet that will help ITL, its customers and the environment.
ITL provides eastbound temperature-controlled door-to-door domestic intermodal service from Washington State and Oregon to the following Midwest and East Coast destinations or locations: Illinois (Greater Chicago & surrounding areas including western Michigan, southern Wisconsin and northern Indiana); New York (Buffalo area, New York City & its boroughs); Pennsylvania (Chambersburg, Harrisburg, and Philadelphia areas); Maryland (greater Baltimore area); Massachusetts (Boston and Springfield areas); Georgia (greater Atlanta area); Florida (Jacksonville, Orlando, and Tampa Bay areas), and the greater Toronto area of Canada.
ITL's expedited door-to-door domestic intermodal temperature-controlled service departs from/returns to intermodal ramps in Spokane, WA, Portland, OR & Seattle, WA six days per week.

Infinity Management Partners and its subsidiaries (collectively Infinity) are Atlanta, Georgia-based limited liability companies specializing in the acquisition and leasing of freight transportation assets. Infinity got its start in the rail industry in 2003, accumulating over 6,000 units of rail rolling stock over the balance of the decade. The portfolio was a diverse group of boxcars, small cube and jumbo covered hoppers, gondolas, flatcars and tank cars leased to an even more diverse group of users carrying freight in many different industries.
In 2009, Infinity joined with one of the world's leading financial services institutions to launch Infinity Transportation (IT), an enterprise created to acquire used rail, intermodal and other transportation equipment, and repair, modify or renovate it as needed, and then lease the equipment to railroads and shippers. Since its inception, IT and its successors and affiliates have acquired a total of approximately $625 million of railcar rolling stock, intermodal assets (domestic intermodal chassis and domestic intermodal containers), delivery/dray trucks and over-the-road trailers.
In 2014, Infinity launched its intermodal operating platform, Infinity Transportation Logistics.
