“These truck carriers, shippers, and third-party logistics providers are leading the industry and showing that it is possible to move more goods using less fuel, resulting in fewer emissions and air pollutants while also reducing costs and conserving energy.”

EPA’s SmartWay Transport Partnership is a market-driven initiative intended to empower businesses to move goods in the cleanest, most energy-efficient way possible to protect public health and reduce emissions. Demonstrating a commitment to environmental responsibility and freight efficiency through SmartWay provides for a more sustainable and competitive business environment.

Since 2004, SmartWay Partners have avoided emitting more than 119 million metric tons of harmful air pollution, while saving 249 million barrels of oil and $33.4 billion in fuel costs—equivalent to eliminating annual energy use in more than 16 million homes. SmartWay partners also help protect clean and healthy air by significantly reducing pollution that contributes to smog, including fine particulate matter and nitrogen oxides.
