Not everyone drives a truck. But we ALL use trucking! When you order online, the products are delivered by truck. When you buy in a retail store, trucks distributed those goods. When you eat out... trucks supplied the restaurant.

There is a Smarter Way to green the trucking blood veins of our complex society.

SmartWaySM Transport is an innovative collaboration between EPA and the freight sector designed to improve energy efficiency, reduce greenhouse gas and air pollutant emissions, and improve energy security.

SmartWay for Smarter Transport

Truckers have probably heard about the EPA program called "SmartWay". Our readers who work in the office, or on the floor, or outdoors might not have heard about the advantages this greener transportation strategy can bring to companies -- large and small -- that own trucks, rent trucks, or hire transport and logistics services.

SmartWay for Green Vehicles

SmartWay Certified Vehicles are about green vehicles. EPA provides a "Green Vehicle Guide" that makes it easier to search for EPA certified SmartWay and SmartWay Elite vehicles. You can use the Green Vehicle Guide to identify the cleanest, most fuel-efficient vehicles available -- all size cars, SUV, and pickups. There ARE greener options.

Low emissions and good fuel economy are both important for the environment.
