What SmartWay Means for You

The SmartWay program is an initiative by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve fuel efficiency in the transportation sector. The program was launched in 2004 and is a voluntary partnership between the EPA and those in the supply chain.  

SmartWay is available to any organization that moves freight in three different types of SmartWay partnerships—SmartWay shippers, SmartWay Logistics Companies like AV Logistics, and SmartWay Carriers, like our sister company, C&K Trucking. 

SmartWay partners include:

  • Retailers
  • Manufacturers
  • Distributors
  • Private fleets
  • Truck and rail carriers
  • Logistics companies

SmartWay encourages everyone to reduce their carbon footprint and harmful emissions in their respective sector by improving fuel efficiency and embracing sustainable transportation. AV Logistics is proud to say that we have successfully met the environmental standards necessary for certification since 2010.  

SmartWay is Good for Our Customers

If you are a company with a mission to operate sustainably, a SmartWay partner like AV Logistics will authentically contribute to your goals. We can become your transportation partner and share your vision for a cleaner environment. As like-minded companies, together we can work to streamline your drayage operations with the environment in mind.  

SmartWay is Good for AV Logistics 

Besides offering our customers a sustainable option for their transportation needs, the EPA SmartWay program unites all of us at AV Logistics under a common goal. We have always been committed to doing what we can for the environment, but SmartWay’s goals are clear and measurable. By implementing program best practices and benchmarking, we can examine our performance, analyze the results, and continuously improve our drayage service for customers. 

SmartWay has been a “smart way” for AV Logistics to do business for our customers and us. If you seek a transportation partner with a SmartWay certification who is serious about environmental impact and can help you reach your sustainability goals, contact us to discuss your drayage needs.
