As sustainability becomes more important to everyone from consumers to corporations, it’s good to know that there are options for eco-friendly shipping.
SmartWay is a program that unites the freight industry and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and is concerned with the environmental impact of the freight shipping supply chain. The program helps partner companies advance their supply chain sustainability by measuring, benchmarking, and improving freight shipping efficiency.
Started in 2004, SmartWay is a voluntary program that:
- Helps improve and streamline shipping operations to use less fuel and generate less pollution
- Allows shippers to identify and select more efficient freight carriers and operational strategies that lowers their shipping costs and improves supply chain sustainability
- Provides a framework to track, document, and share information about fuel usage and freight emissions
- Reduces freight shipping-related air pollutant emissions and climate change impact
