Become a SmartWay Affiliate

SmartWay Partners are organizations that ship, carry or manage freight transportation across domestic and global supply chains.

However, if your enterprise does not control freight shipments, you can still advance supply chain sustainability by becoming a SmartWay Affiliate.

The types of organizations that can become SmartWay Affiliates include:

  • Industry trade and professional associations
  • Environmental organizations
  • Nongovernmental organizations
  • Academic institutions
  • Municipal, county, state, and federal government agencies
  • Truck/trailer dealers and leasing companies

SmartWay Affiliates commit to spreading the word about SmartWay within the freight transport industry. Here are a few ways SmartWay Affiliates help grow the SmartWay program:

  • Associations and environmental organizations educate members about the SmartWay program and supply chain sustainability.
  • Truck and trailer leading companies and dealers promote and lease/sell EPA-designated SmartWay Tractors or Trailers and SmartWay-verified technologies.
