May 24, 2017

SmartWay demonstrated its 2017 Multimodal Carrier Tool for carriers utilizing multiple freight transport modes, with information on how to complete the performance assessment tool submission using 2016 data.  The webinar included a brief introduction to the SmartWay program, a tool demonstration and discussion on using tool outputs to 1) assess environmental performance by gathering fuel consumption and emissions information about their company's rail carriers, truck carriers, barge carriers, air carriers, and logistics companies; 2) calculate baseline energy efficiency and environmental performance (including CO2, NOx, and PM emissions); and 3) benchmark and track annual changes in performance utilizing multiple freight transport modes to calculate and report their company’s emissions and energy efficiency.
