SmartWay Air Carrier Partners, Applicants, and Prospects—and all interested in this aspect of the SmartWay Transport Partnership’s program—join us as EPA SmartWay demonstrates its 2017 Air Carrier Tool.

The presentation also includes a brief introduction to EPA’s SmartWay Transport Partnership.  After the presentation, you will have an opportunity to ask questions and hear the answers to others’ questions.

This webinar is for: SmartWay Air Carrier Partners and non-partner air freight carriers, those who hire air freight carriers, and all others interested in seeing how SmartWay assesses energy efficiency and environmental performance for air freight carriers.
