J.D. & Billy Hines Trucking, Inc. is pleased to be part of the SmartWay® Transport Partnership (PDF file, obtain PDF Viewer, if needed), in which freight carriers and shippers commit to benchmark operations, track fuel consumption and improve performance annually.
The SmartWay® Program is a public-private initiative between EPA, large and small trucking companies, rail carriers, logistics companies, commercial manufacturers, retailers, and other federal and state agencies. Its purpose is to improve fuel efficiency and the environmental performance (reduction of both greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution) of the goods movement supply chains.
Launched in 2004, SmartWay® is an EPA program that reduces transportation-related emissions by creating incentives to improve supply chain fuel efficiency.
SmartWay® aims to accelerate the availability, adoption and market penetration of advanced fuel efficient technologies and operational practices in the freight supply chain, while helping companies save fuel, lower costs and reduce adverse environmental impacts. EPA helps SmartWay® Partners move more goods, more miles with lower emissions and less energy.
