EPA's roadmap for a sustainable freight future!
The SmartWay® Program is a public-private initiative to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution created by freight transportation in corporate supply chains.
SmartWay helps companies that ship goods, and the companies that carry those goods, improve efficiency by measuring, benchmarking and streamlining freight supply chain operations.
SmartWay aims to accelerate the availability, adoption and market penetration of advanced fuel efficient technologies and operational practices in the freight supply chain, while helping companies save fuel, lower costs and reduce adverse environmental impacts. EPA helps SmartWay Partners move more goods, more miles with lower emissions and less energy.
