Interim  Process for  New
Logistics  Companies  Joining
Smart Way
EPA has released the beta version of its new Logistics Tool. Following testing and comment by SmartWay
Logistics Partners, EPA expects to release a final Smart Way Logistics Tool this winter.

Meanwhile, any Logistics wishing to join SmartWay as a new Partner can do so by reviewing and signing
the Logistics Partnership Agreement on page 2 of this document, completing the company information
on page 3 and sending the Agreement to SmartWay via email or fax:

                     Fax: 734-214-4906

SmartWay will then review and approve the Agreement, thereby making the applicant a SmartWay
Logistics Partner. Soon thereafter, the new Partner's company name will be posted in the Partner roster
on the SmartWay website. New Partners will be expected to quickly familiarize themselves with the beta
version of its new Logistics Tool.

After the final SmartWay Logistics Tool is available this winter, o//_SmartWay Logistics Partners (new and
old) must complete and submit the final Logistics Tool with 2010 data.

Once you become a SmartWay Logistics Partner, EPA invites you to participate in our beta testing
period and become more familiar with the new Logistics Tool. We encourage you to explore all of our
Logistics resources and provide your feedback to EPA as we finalize this and other components of our
new suite of SmartWay partner tools.
