SmartWay Transport Partnership

Moving Goods the “SmartWay” Saving Fuel, Money, and the Environment

The smartway transport partnership l.jpg
The SmartWay Transport Partnership

Partnership between EPA and industry stakeholders to drive demand for cleaner, more fuel-efficient transportation

  • 2012 Goals:

    • 150 million barrels of oil each year (12 million cars off the road)

    • 33-66 million metric tons CO2 annually

  • SmartWay for the Freight Sector

    • Capitalizing on shipper-carrier relationship to promote cost-effective strategies

      • idle control, single wide tires, improved aerodynamics, PM/NOx after treatment devices

    • Over 650 Partners committing to reduce emissions

      • truck and rail operators, freight shippers, logistics companies, technology vendors and manufacturers, trucks stops, ports, banks, dealer and service centers

    • SmartWay certified tractors and trailers

  • SmartWay for Consumers

    • www.epa.gov/greenvehicles

    • SmartWay certified passenger cars & light trucks

  • SmartWay Grow & Go – renewable fuels


What are the commitments l.jpg
What are the commitments?

  • Freight industry

    • Companies that own trucks, locomotives (Carriers) agree to integrate innovative fuel and emission savings technologies into their freight operations

    • Companies that hire Carriers (Shippers) agree to do at least 50% of their business with SmartWay Carriers

      >>> Carrier and Shipper partners are given a score based on performance

    • Tailored commitments from logistics companies, technology vendors and manufacturers, trucks stops, ports, banks, dealer and service centers

  • USEPA

    • Guidance and measurement tools

    • Technology research and demonstration

    • Project and policy facilitation

    • Innovative financing

    • Marketing and recognition

Idle Reduction Technologies

For Trucks and Locomotives

Average fuel savingsEmissions Controlled

Trucks: 4 liters/hr CO2, NOx, and PM

Rail: 12 - 45 liters/hr

  • Automatic Shut-Down/Start Up System

  • Battery Powered Systems

  • Diesel Driven Heating System

  • Auxiliary Power Unit/Generator Set

  • Truck Stop Electrification


Slide5 l.jpg

Low Rolling Resistance Tires

Single Wide Base and Improved Duals

Average fuel savingsEmissions Controlled

Trucks: 4 - 5% CO2, NOx

  • Single-wide tires and aluminum wheels

    • Reduced rolling resistance

    • Reduced weight

  • Low rolling resistance duals can be as effective

    as singles


Slide6 l.jpg

Trailer Aerodynamics

Average fuel savingsEmissions Controlled

Trucks: 5% CO2, NOx

  • Trailer Fairings, Side-skirts

  • Nose Cone and Trailer Tail


Slide7 l.jpg

The SmartWay Truck

A SmartWay Truck is 20 to 25% more efficient than an average truck on the road today.


Other strategies for carriers l.jpg
Other Strategies for Carriers

  • Engine efficiency (power)

  • Proper maintenance

  • Speed management

  • Automatic tire inflation

  • Low-viscosity lubricants

  • Driver behavior training

  • Better routing

  • Improved pickup and delivery scheduling

  • Weight reduction

  • Improved logistics e.g. fuller loads



Case studies carrier partners l.jpg
Case Studies: Carrier Partners

  • Bison Transport’s Fuel Economy Incentive Program

    • All trucks (~500) equipped with onboard computer and satellite communication system enabling Bison to track each unit and driver

    • Fuel economy benchmark for each trailer type

    • Bonuses paid to drivers that exceed target

      • based on 3-month average fuel economy to average out weather, load, routing factors

    • Results: 3% fuel economy improvement

  • Con-Way Truckload Efficient Tire Program

    • Purchased 750 tractors and 100 trailers with low rolling resistance, wide-based tires (out of ~2500 tractors, 7000 trailers)

      • $40 incremental cost; improvement of 2/10 to 3/10 of a mile per gallon

      • Paid back after 2500 miles

    • Close to achieving 100% single-wide tires

      • Expected to save $4.6M per year

  • Styline’s Idle Reduction Program

    • Auxilary power units, engine shutdown devices, truck stop electrification, no idling policies in loading zones, bypassing weigh stations

      • Expected to save $1.3M per yer (~150 tractors, 300 trailers)

Shippers ship more freight with

SmartWay Transport Carriers




Other strategies for shippers l.jpg
Other Strategies for Shippers

  • Driver comfort stations

  • Warehouse improvements

  • Improved pickup and delivery scheduling

  • Weight reduction

  • Improved logistics e.g. fuller loads


Case studies shipper partners l.jpg
Case Studies: Shipper Partners

  • Ikea – 100% SmartWay Carriers (30 new SmartWay Partners)

    • Visits SmartWay Carriers to review strategies

  • Sharp Electronics Highlights

    • Ships 99% of freight with SmartWay carriers

    • No idling policy at loading docks

    • Reducing emissions from forklifts

    • Pioneering work with ocean-going vessels; (cold-ironing, speed reduction)

  • Lowe’s Highlights

    • Increased intermodal shipping by over 4000 shipments per year

    • Reduced 36,000 truckloads and 25 million miles per year by increasing full use of trailers

SmartWay Upgrade Kit Example

  • For a truck traveling 100,000 miles/year @ 6 mpg (16,667 gallons /year)

  • - Fuel savings: 2,833 gallons @ $2.50/gallon  $7,083/year

  • - Payback period: $16,500 / $7,083  ~2.3 years

  • - or a 5 year loan @ 12% APR:
