Smartway Certified

The U.S. and other countries have been experiencing an unprecedented opening of economies to new and emerging markets. New technologies, manufacturing methods, materials, information channels, transportation capacity and trade policies are accelerating the globalization of commerce.

Increasingly, U.S. manufacturing relies upon multiple sources and modes of transportation. A single product can be transported by boat or plane several times, then distributed across the country via boat, truck, rail, or some combination of these. This extraordinary movement of products means using an unfathomable amount of energy.

EPA’s SmartWay program helps companies advance supply chain sustainability by measuring, benchmarking, and improving freight transportation efficiency.
