SmartWay Transport Partnership

FHWA Talking Freight Seminar – April 20, 2005

What Partners are Saying

“By designing this program, it shows me and other carriers

that EPA is concerned about our business as well as

clean air.”

-- Rick Coomes, President, Coomes, Inc.

“The very worst thing that'll happen to you is you'll save fuel, which means you'll make more money.”

-- Dave Berry, Vice Pres., Swift Transportation

“SmartWay Transport offers opportunities to learn and lead the way toward a clean transportation future”

-- Charles Butt, Chairman and CEO, H-E-B Grocery Co.

slide4

What Partners are Saying

“As a responsible member of the communities in which we operate and as a desirable employer, we view the SmartWay Transport Partnership as an integral part of our operations.”

-- Dennis Damman, Dir. of Engineering, Schneider National Inc.

“SmartWay provides another way to push ourselves to meet, and exceed . . . company goals.”

-- Mike Herr, Vice President of Environmental Affairs, UPS

“We believe that cooperative initiatives, such as SmartWay Transport, are an important step toward measuring and reducing our environmental ground transportation footprint.”

-- Michael Bertolucci, Senior Vice President, Interface, Inc.

What is the SmartWay Transport Partnership?

  • Launched February 9, 2004
  • 3 Major SmartWay Transport Components:
    • Corporate Partnerships – carriers and shippers working to reduce fuel consumption and emissions.
    • National Transportation Idle-Free Corridors – goal to eliminate unnecessary idling along major transportation routes.
    • Rail/Intermodal (still developing) – promote greater use of appropriate intermodal strategies.
slide6

What is the SmartWay Transport Partnership?

  • Voluntary partnership between EPA and the freight industry:
    • Developed jointly by EPA and several carriers and shippers, including Schneider, Swift, Yellow Roadway, UPS, Fedex, Coca Cola, Home Depot, and IKEA.
    • Freight industry interests: reduce fuel consumption, public recognition, improved public image.
    • EPA interests: reduced emissions (CO2, NOx, PM) and improved energy security.
  • Work closely with State Trucking Associations to get the word out to trucking companies.

How Does the Partnership Work?

  • Carriers:
    • Join the Partnership and agree to work toward improved efficiency and reduced fuel consumption over a 3 year period.
  • Shippers:
    • Join the Partnership and agree to work toward shipping more of their product with SmartWay Carrier Partners, as well as improving their operations over a 3 year period.

slide25

How Do Carriers Evaluate Options and Measure Progress?

  • Freight Logistics Environmental and Energy Tracking Performance Model – Carrier Module:
  • Measures the environmental performance of any fleet:
    • Tons of CO2, NOx, and PM.
    • Effectiveness of strategies used in the fleet (e.g., aerodynamics, idling reduction).
  • Projects the effectiveness of strategies a fleet could add in the future.
  • Estimates cost savings and return-on-investment for strategies.
slide26

How Do Shippers Evaluate Options and Measure Progress?

  • Freight Logistics Environmental and Energy Tracking Performance Model – Shipper Module:
  • Tracks percentage of freight shipped with SmartWay Transport Carrier Partners – by weight, mileage, ton-mileage, $ value, or customized metric.
  • Calculates emissions from a shipper’s freight activities:
    • Truck idling at the company’s facilities.
    • Mobile sources at a company’s facilities (forklifts, loaders, cranes, generators).
    • Use of intermodal operations.
slide27

Benefits for Partners Meeting Partnership Goals

  • The SmartWay Logo:
    • Carriers and shippers who meet predetermined criteria for emissions reductions are awarded the SmartWay Transport Partnership logo.
    • Logo may be used on corporate materials and advertising to indicate the company’s use of cleaner transportation.
slide29

SmartWay PSA Campaign

  • Raise awareness of the Partnership among the carrier and shipper communities, and the public.
  • Initial efforts aimed at carriers and shippers.
  • Campaign launched in Dec. 2004
  • Placements in more than 20 publications/outlets:
    • Forbes
    • Business Week
    • Fleet Owner
    • Transport Topics
    • Overdrive
    • Numerous logistics and shipper publications
slide31

SmartWay Transport National Idle-Free Transportation Corridors

  • 52 Projects in 17 States
  • Over 1,000 new electrified parking spaces to be created at truck stops as a result of $1 Million Awarded in Grants to 9 States and Non-Profits
  • FY 2005 Congressional earmark of $5 million to promote deployment of idle reduction technologies.
  • Developing model state idling regulation.

SmartWay – One Year Later

  • 133 Partners – 107 Carriers, 20 Shippers, 6 Shipper/Carriers
    • 9 of Transport Topics Top 20 For-Hire Carriers
    • Well over 250,000 tractors traveling over 14 billion miles per year consuming more than 2 billion gallons of fuel per year
  • Shippers incorporating SmartWay membership into hiring decisions
    • IKEA North America moving to 100% shipping with SmartWay Carriers
  • Developing plans to allow the SmartWay logo to be put on low-emission, high fuel-efficiency trucks
  • Attempting to develop guidance for States to quantify and use emission reductions from long-haul trucks.
slide34

SmartWay – Highlights for 2005

  • Issue Idling Control Grants and Develop Model State Idling Regulation
  • Continue development of Technology Verification Program
  • Develop and launch new Partner categories, possibly to include:
    • Rail
    • Affiliates (State Trucking Associations, NGOs, etc.)
    • Truck Parking Locations (Truck Stops, Travel Centers, Rest Stops, etc.)
    • Logistics Companies
    • Ports
slide35

2005 SmartWay Idling Control Grant Program

  • The $5 million idling control grant program.
    • Program will include three components:
      • Small Trucking Company Grant Program (Mobile Technology)
      • Truck OEM/Fleet/Technology Vendor Grant Program (Mobile Technology)
      • Ports, Borders, Terminals and Truck Stop Grant Program (Stationary Technology)
  • Release of Request for Applications (RFA) planned for April 20.
slide36

Model State Idling Regulation Development

  • State Idling Regulations
    • Industry voiced concerns about state/local idling regulations
      • Inconsistent from state-to-state
      • List of states with laws is growing
      • Inhumane, impractical
      • Minimal input from trucking industry
      • Spotty enforcement
      • Possible ticketing use of APUs
      • Lack of outreach/education
slide37

Model State Idling Regulation Development

  • State Idling Regulations: EPA’s Response
    • Develop Model State Idling Regulation for states to adopt (or re-legislate) if they wish.
      • Bring together states, trucking associations, and trucking companies for discussions
      • Attempt to reach consensus on specifics of a model regulation: time limit, exemptions, etc.
      • 5 Focus group meetings in May – July 2005
      • Issue model by late-Summer 2005
