The carrier received a score of 1.25, which, according to the EPA’s website, “represents outstanding environmental performance. These partners already are utilizing most of the commercially available fuel-saving strategies and are actively evaluating the latest emerging technologies. Partners with scores of 1.25 are awarded the honor of displaying the SmartWay Transport Partner logo, EPA’s symbol for superior fuel efficiency and environmental performance.”
Companies receive scores of 1.25, 1.00, 0.75, or 0.00.
In 2004, EPA launched SmartWay to identify products and services that reduce transportation-related emissions.
