EPA Smartway Program
In 2004, EPA launched SmartWay, a program that identifies products and services that reduce transportation-related emissions. The SmartWay brand signifies a partnership among government, business and consumers to protect the environment, reduce fuel consumption, and improve air quality for future generations. SmartWay partners can be involved in a number of points in the transport of goods:
- Freight shippers
- Truck, rail, air, and barge carriers
- Multimodal carriers
- Logistics providers
Becoming a SmartWay partner can be an important part of your firm’s environmental management system.
A Smooth Road to Better Trucking
A transportation logistics company sought to become a SmartWay partner to grow their market share. Freer Consulting guided the client through the application process by identifying and compiling the data necessary for the application. Freer also completed the application and submitted it to EPA on the client’s behalf. The company was successfully admitted as a SmartWay Partner. Freer has also assisted the company in annual renewals of its SmartWay Partnership.
