The Trucking Association of New York is a proud partner of SmartWay®, a program of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) which encourages carriers to take advantage of the mutually beneficial tools the program provides.

The SmartWay program helps transportation providers to benchmark, measure and track their efforts to improve efficiency and reduce their carbon footprint through various tools available online. SmartWay is a voluntary program. The EPA provides resources for both freight shippers and freight carriers to help them establish green freight initiatives that get measurable results.

Endorsed by leading freight sector associations such as the American Trucking Association (ATA) and the Council for Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP), the SmartWay program has been used by over 3,000 companies and organizations to reduce the environmental impacts of goods movement. Many shippers only hire carriers which are designated as SmartWay Partners.

The Trucking Association of New York encourages all members to visit the SmartWay website at www.epa.gov/smartway to learn more about the programs and tools available.

Current SmartWay participants are encouraged to check out new features designed to simplify the use of the SmartWay tools and reduce the amount of entries necessary to use multiple tools, saving carriers time.  See what’s new at www.epa.gov/smartway.
