This information was very interesting to me. I met the owner of this trucking company and we began talking about sustainable driving. He said his company has implemented the program with all of his trucks! He lauched “SmartWay, an EPA program that reduces transportation-related emissions by creating incentives to improve supply chain fuel efficiency” with every driver that works for him. NOt only will this help with the reduction of emissions, the company is also reducing gas costs using the Technology program, which is a “testing, verification, and designation program to help freight companies identify equipment, technologies and strategies that save fuel and lower emissions.” All is trucks are set to 60mph, which I thought was a great idea. They save fuel and are also providing a safe drive for their drivers. passangers and others driving on the road! Now if all trucking companies could adapt the same policies!!!!
