Drayage Carriers Program
On Wednesday, June 28, 2011, at the Port of Charleston, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), joined by the Coalition for Responsible Transportation and the Environmental Defense Fund, announced that it is launching a new port drayage truck initiative under the SmartWay Transport Partnership.
The SmartWay port drayage truck initiative is aimed at cleaning up the trucks that deliver freight in and around ports. U.S. ports generate jobs and are critical to our nation’s economy.
However, many of the trucks that service ports are older and emit harmful diesel pollutants. The SmartWay port initiative will provide technical assistance, emission assessment tools and partnership recognition to port truck companies that commit to clean up their trucks.
Additionally, SmartWay will provide special recognition to shippers -- many of which are already SmartWay partners -- for using cleaner trucks, thereby increasing the demand for cleaner trucks at ports. Through this initiative, SmartWay will help ports to continue to contribute to their local economies while protecting air quality, the environment and public health, especially that of the surrounding communities.
