OMAHA, Neb.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Werner Enterprises (Nasdaq: WERN), a premier transportation and logistics provider, announced its inclusion as a 2023 Top Green Fleet by Heavy Duty Trucking. The recognition highlights Werner’s commitment to reducing its carbon emissions by innovating its operations, fleet and technology.

"We are honored to be included among this list of companies addressing and finding solutions combating the transportation industry’s carbon impacts,” said Senior Vice President of the One-Way Truckload Network, Chad Dittberner. “This award from Heavy Duty Trucking is a great validation of our efforts as we build a scalable sustainability framework.

Werner has committed to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by 55 percent by 2035.
