Emissions Rankings

SmartWay uses fuel, mileage and payload data about carriers to calculate carrier emissions rates for six distinct emissions categories:

  1. Grams/kilometre of carbon dioxide
  2. Grams/kilometre of nitrous oxide
  3. Grams/kilometre of particulate matter (2.5 microns)
  4. Grams/tonne-kilometre of carbon dioxide
  5. Grams/tonne-kilometre of nitrous oxide
  6. Grams/tonne-kilometre of particulate matter (2.5 microns)

Shippers can use SmartWay emissions information to compare carriers for contracting purposes.  At the end of each year, shippers can calculate their own freight carbon footprint using emissions information from the SmartWay carriers they worked with.
