Michelin North America Inc. has received the 2019 SmartWay Excellence Award for "oustanding environmental performance and leadership," according to Michelin officials.

Michelin was one of 17 shippers and logistics companies to receive the distinction during the American Trucking Associations' Management Conference & Exhibition, which is taking place in San Diego, Calif.

"The award is the United States Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) highest recognition for leadership in freight, supply chain, energy and environmental performance, achieved by improving freight efficiency and contributing to cleaner air throughout the supply chain," say Michelin officials.
