Increasing efficiency of logistics

IBM is optimizing logistics operations and increasing packaging density and strength to reduce the caron dioxide (CO2) emissions generated by the transport of IBM products and their components. IBM has been an active participant of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's SmartWay® Transport Partnership since 2006. SmartWay is a voluntary initiative to improve fuel efficiency and reduce GHG emissions associated with logistics operations.

IBM also develops product packaging that minimizes material use and package volume while optimizing package strength. This helps reduce transport-associated CO2 emissions. Please visit our Protective product packaging webpage for more information.
