SmartWay Global Freight Supply Chain Programs
Global Green Freight Action Plan
EPA supported the development of the Global Green Freight Action Plan as a roadmap and blueprint for countries to develop programs like SmartWay. The Action Plan is intended to help develop new programs, support the alignment and harmonization of existing programs, and incorporate control of greenhouse gases and air pollutants into freight sustainability efforts.
Because different countries and regions have developed variations of freight sustainability programs using their own methods, standards, and metrics, the Smart Freight Centre formed the Global Logistics Emissions Council (GLEC) to help standardize and harmonize programs and practices. GLEC has created a standard methodology framework for green freight programs, the Framework for Logistics Emissions Methodologies, which draws on SmartWay tools and methods.
SmartWay Collaboration and Related Programs
Other countries and business coalitions around the world are working to implement programs like SmartWay to help address the impacts of freight transportation. Many of these organizations modeled their programs on SmartWay’s public-private partnership model and performance benchmarking methods.
