U.S. Environmental Protection Agency^	1 ** **
The 2019 SmartWay Excellence Awards program for shippers, logistics companies and freight carriers
is a recognition program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) SmartWay Transport
Partnership. SmartWay is a voluntary, market-driven partnership that aims to reduce emissions and
fosters the development of a cleaner and more efficient freight supply chain.
Through the SmartWay Excellence Award program, EPA recognizes leading shippers, logistics
companies and freight carriers that are optimizing the environmental performance and efficiency of
their freight operations, while serving as role models for other businesses to follow. This year we are
recognizing 72 companies (thirteen shippers, four logistics companies, five multi-modal and fifty truck
carriers) with a 2019 SmartWay Excellence Award. This represents about the top one to two percent
of all SmartWay Partners.
The 2019 SmartWay Award recognition is based on partners demonstrating superior performance
using SmartWay's second generation environmental assessment system for transportation supply
chains. This enhanced system includes a full suite of performance-based SmartWay Tools and
benchmarking software that enable each SmartWay Partner to complete a thorough assessment of its
goods movement and freight activity. Partners also receive a set of comprehensive and detailed reports
on their company's environmental performance and operational efficiency.
EPA identified the top 2019 SmartWay Excellence Award recipients from among all shippers, logistics
and carrier businesses that participate in SmartWay, are partners in good standing and that provided
prior-year performance data to EPA using SmartWay Tools.
Candidates in SmartWay's shipper and logistics management categories were evaluated based on their
impact, size and commitment to using high-performing SmartWay freight carriers. In 2019, eligible
shippers and logistics companies were partners in good standing and used real world data to complete
their SmartWay shipper and logistics management tools. The selected candidates achieved a superior
level of environmental performance and the highest level of efficiency within SmartWay by
demonstrating that they ship more goods per mile, more efficiently, using higher-performing
SmartWay carrier partners.
Candidates in SmartWay's freight carrier category were evaluated based on their efficiency and
environmental performance in moving products and merchandise. In 2019, eligible carriers included
large and medium-to-small companies that are partners in good standing within key business sectors,
including: truckload, less-than-truckload, refrigerated, package, specialized, expedited, tanker, flatbed,
mixed, dray, heavy haul, auto-carrier, moving, and multimodal freight operations. Within these
respective fleet characterizations and based on their size, these carriers achieved a superior level of
environmental performance and the highest level of efficiency within SmartWay by demonstrating
that they carry more goods per ton-mile, using less fuel and emitting fewer greenhouse gas and air
pollutant emissions.

SmartWay Carrier Company Awards
The 2019 SmartWay Excellence Award for carriers' honor Partners that are moving goods efficiently,
with the lowest levels of CO2, PM and NOx emissions reported among all other SmartWay Partners.
SmartWay Award winners within the carrier category can include companies that operate one or more
of following 15 fleet types: truckload, less-than-truckload, refrigerated, package, specialized, expedited,
tanker, flatbed, mixed, dray, heavy-haul, auto-carrier, moving, barge and multimodal. SmartWay
carrier Award winners were selected using environmental and efficiency benchmarks that included
CO2, PM and NOx emissions measured in grams per ton-mile. These benchmarks were unique to each
of the fifteen fleet types characterized by SmartWay.
Fleet size and impactwere other factors considered. SmartWay's 2019 carrier Award winners represent
large, medium and small fleets, as defined by the number of miles traveled. Carriers with miles traveled
greater than or equal to one percent (five percent for multimodal) of the total number of miles traveled
by all SmartWay Partners falling within the same fleet type are large carriers. Carriers with miles trav-
eled that are less than one percent (five percent for multimodal) of the total miles traveled by all
SmartWay partners falling in the same fleet type are medium and small carriers.
Within the carrier category, EPA proudly recognizes five multimodal carriers and 50 truck carriers as
recipients of the 2019 SmartWay Excellence Award. These high-performing carriers are being
recognized for their achievement in finding ways to move more goods, more ton-miles, using less fuel
and emitting fewer emissions. They are SmartWay's top performing carrier partners and include large,
medium and small carriers that serve as role models for other businesses to follow. This year, two
truck carriers (Swift Transportation Co., and Werner Enterprises) had recognition in multiple fleet
categories; Swift in refrigerated and truckload dry van, and Werner in drayage, flatbed and truckload
dry van. Different divisions of CRST are also being recognized: CRST Dedicated Services, Inc. and
CRST Expedited, Inc. One Partner, Meijer, is recognized both as a shipper and as a carrier (Meijer
Logistics).
Carrier Award winners
EPA selected these 50 SmartWay truck carrier and five multimodal Award winners because they are
the top environmental performers in their individual categories. EPA identified large and
medium/small carriers with the best freight efficiency ratings in 15 fleet categories based on the
selection criteria available here: SmartWay 2019 Award Criteria (PDF) (2 pp, 624K, EPA-420-F-19-

SmartWay Shipper and Logistics Company Awards
The 2019 SmartWay Excellence Award for shippers and logistics management companies honor
Partners that are helping build a market for clean and efficient freight transportation by shipping
virtually all of their products and merchandise (98 % of miles or ton-miles for shippers and 80% of
miles or ton-miles for logistics partners) with high-performing SmartWay carriers. SmartWay shipper
and logistics Award winners also were selected based on achieving superior environmental and
efficiency benchmarks among all other SmartWay Partners. These performance benchmarks for
shippers and logistics Partners were derived through an assessment of their carriers' carbon dioxide
(CO2), particulate matter (PM), and nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions measured in grams per mile.
Within the shipper and logistics management categories, EPA proudly recognizes 13 of its shippers
and four of its logistics Partners as recipients of a 2019 SmartWay Excellence Award. These shipper
and logistics Award winners are congratulated for their achievements in choosing to work with high-
performing SmartWay freight carriers and finding ways to move more goods, more ton-miles using
less fuel and emitting fewer emissions. They are SmartWay's top performing shipper and logistics
partners and include large, medium and small firms that move a broad range of products and
merchandise.
