The Coalition for Responsible Transportations aims to drive innovative solutions to improve port performance, air quality and infrastructure that enhances the reliability and velocity of freight flows through our nation’s ports and intermodal gateways.
improve the RELIABILITY & VELOCITY
of freight flows through our nation's ports and intermodal gateways
CRT and its members work with all segments of the shipping industry to identify and implement ways to reduce port congestion and increase efficiencies for all users of ports and inland intermodal gateways. This is accomplished via the adoption of uniform standards, directing attention to reducing dwell times, developing effective scheduling models, and improving stakeholder communication in order to encourage the transparent sharing of data and public reporting.
promote RESPONSIBLE BUSINESS PRACTICES
within the intermodal supply chain and demonstrate our commitment to the environment and the communities we serve.
We are committed to working proactively with our nation’s ports, inland intermodal gateways, governmental decisionmakers, and the public to develop and promote emissions reduction programs that efficiently and cost-effectively meet air quality goals at all governmental levels, and industry-supported clean-truck programs that are environmentally and economically sustainable.
forge a PROACTIVE COMPLIANCE
attitude regarding the development and administration of environmental emission regulations.
CRT and its members continually strive to create and implement sustainable business practices that minimize emissions from port-related activities.
