Since Partners began voluntarily submitting data to EPA via the second generation SmartWay performance-based quantification and reporting tools, SmartWay has expanded the number of Partner categories. Beginning with truck carriers alone in the 2009 reporting year, six categories of SmartWay Partners are now addressed in 2014: shipper, logistics company, truck carrier, multimodal carrier, rail carrier, and the newest, barge carrier (inland marine). Next year, SmartWay anticipates adding a category for air carriers as well.

SmartWay Shipper Partners reported that from 2011 through 2013, the percentage of SmartWay carriers they use has increased by nearly six percent.

The percentages of SmartWay carriers for each Shipper Partner were averaged together to create the overall percentages by year shown in the chart.)

SmartWay carrier performance rankings are available on the SmartWay database at www.epa.gov/smartway/forpartners/performance.htm.
