U.S. EPA SmartWay Program
Launched in 2004, SmartWay is an EPA program that reduces transportation-related emissions by creating incentives to improve supply chain fuel efficiency.
The SmartWay Program is a public-private initiative between EPA, large and small trucking companies, rail carriers, logistics companies, commercial manufacturers, retailers, and other federal and state agencies. Its purpose is to improve fuel efficiency and the environmental performance (reduction of both greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution) of the goods movement supply chains.
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.
SmartWay is comprised of four components: transport partnership, international interests, technology program, and vehicles.
South Shore Clean Cities (SSCC) supports SmartWay's efforts by promoting idle reduction and fuel efficiency methods and technologies. SSCC also assists the SmartWay program by partnering with fleets in order to aid them in their fuel reduction efforts. SSCC has members that have benefited from also participating in the SmartWay program:
