myFreightWorld Technologies Joins U.S. EPA SmartWay Transport® Partnership

OVERLAND PARK, KS--(Marketwire - February 8, 2011) - myFreightWorld Technologies Inc. (PINKSHEETS: MYFT) announced today that it has joined the SmartWay Transport® Partnership ("SmartWay"), an innovative collaboration between the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the transportation industry. SmartWay's goal is to significantly reduce greenhouse gases and air pollution by improving the performance of U.S. freight operations.

Carbon dioxide is the most common greenhouse gas, and nitrogen oxide is an air pollutant that contributes to smog. As a certified SmartWay partner, myFreightWorld actively supports the EPA in its efforts to reduce 33 to 66 million metric tons of carbon dioxide and up to 200,000 tons of nitrogen oxide per year by 2012. 

Mark Hebden, EVP and COO of myFreightWorld, said, "myFreightWorld is committed to meeting the highest standards of environmental leadership and corporate responsibility. Many large shippers are seeking business service firms with environmental certifications. As a certified member of SmartWay, we have gained greater visibility and marketability as a 'green' solutions provider in the transportation industry. We believe this is a positive step for our business and the planet."

Launched in February 2004, the SmartWay Transport Partnership brings together major freight shippers, trucking companies, railroads, logistics companies and trade/professional associations to pursue mutually beneficial strategies that result in emissions reductions and other environmental improvements, as well as cost savings to the companies. The Partnership currently has over 2,600 Partners. For information about the SmartWay Transport Partnership, visit http://www.epa.gov/smartway.
