SmartWay Transport Partnership
WCD Trucking SmartWay Certificate
SmartWay Transport is the US Environmental Protection Agency's flagship program for improving fuel efficiency and reducing greenhouse gases and air pollution from the transportation supply chain industry.

Supported by major freight industry associations, environmental groups, states, companies, and trade publications, SmartWay Transport is leading the way to greater fuel efficiency and lower emissions from the freight sector, while presenting a model of government and industry cooperation for public and private benefits.
