The Canadian SmartWay Excellence Award recipients are members of the SmartWay Transport Partnership, a market-driven initiative that empowers businesses to move goods in the cleanest, most energy-efficient way possible.
SmartWay is a voluntary, free program that provides freight carriers with tools to track and measure their emissions to help them improve their fuel efficiency and reduce their emissions. They represent a diverse group of freight carriers – including companies with small and large fleets, companies from different provinces and companies that won awards in different fleet categories.
The annual SmartWay Excellence Awards honours carriers, shippers and logistics partners for superior performance. To be eligible for an award, companies in most categories are also required to provide qualitative data demonstrating how they have gone above and beyond the requirements of the program.
The SmartWay program is delivered jointly by Natural Resources Canada and the U.S. EPA; the awards are given exclusively by the US EPA to SmartWay Partners in both countries.
Recognition of carriers as SmartWay Excellence awardees took place at the American Trucking Association’s (ATA) Annual Management Conference and Exhibition in Las Vegas, Nevada, where five Canadian carriers were honoured:
