EPA’s SmartWay Transport Partnership
The EPA SmartWay Transport is a voluntary partnership with the ground freight industry aimed at reducing freight and fleet sector energy consumption and related greenhouse gas emissions. Their site includes the FLEET Performance Model. FLEET is Freight Logistics Environmental and Energy Tracking Performance Model. It allows a company to quantify the environmental performance of their fleet operations. Users input the number of trucks in the fleet, gallons of fuel consumed, and mileage accumulated into the model and it expresses the company’s environmental performance for CO2, Nox and PM emissions. In addition, the model evaluates the effectiveness of innovative fuel saving and emission reduction strategies that companies have integrated into their fleet operations.
Fleet Buyers Guide

Use the site to figure if your fleet is covered under EPAct, obtain pricing and technical specifications for light- and heavy-duty AFVs, find an alternative fueling station in your area, or research information about state AFV purchasing incentives and laws.
