SmartWay Transport Partnership

Organization(s) Environmental Protection Agency - Region 1
Project Description The SmartWay Transport Partnership is a voluntary collaboration between EPA and the freight industry to conserve fuel and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The Partnership "makes the business case for how companies shipping products, and the truck and rail carriers delivering these products, can improve their environmental profile while saving money and time. Fleets choose from a wide variety of strategies to minimize idle time, reduce rolling resistance, improve aerodynamics, and/or improve logistics and driver skills. Shippers participate by increasing the proportion of their product carried by SmartWay carrier partners, and also by improving on-dock efficiency and logistics. The program just passed its second anniversary with about 450 partners in 41 states, including major shippers such as IKEA, Nike, Canon, and Home Depot, and about half of the top 100 for-hire carriers. But SmartWay is not only for huge corporationsmany small carriers and locally-known shippers are also partners.
