SmartWay is a voluntary EPA program that helps trucking companies reduce their carbon footprint (emissions). In order to maintain certification, SmartWay Partners must file documents annually showing what they have done in the previous year to reduce emissions, and provide data on its effectiveness. We encourage SmartWay certification and use SmartWay Certified Transportation Partners where available.
