EPA Smartway High Performer

July 31, 2019

Boyle Transportation is pleased to announce that we have been named a SmartWay High Performer for carbon emissions by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). EPA’s SmartWay program helps shippers and carriers with supply chain sustainability by measuring and benchmarking freight carriers using a comprehensive data collection tool for fuel and emissions.

Andrew Boyle, co-President, remarked, "We've made significant investments in low emission vehicles and idle reduction technologies. More importantly, our people have embraced practices that reduce emissions and fuel consumption. We remain committed to running an environmentally sustainable operation." Over the last 15 years, EPA SmartWay partners have saved over 248.8 million barrels of oil, lowered fuel costs by $33.4 billion and reduced emissions of harmful air pollutants by 119 million tons. Boyle Transportation has been a SmartWay participant since 2008.

From the EPA Smartway website:

Fewer than 10 percent of all SmartWay carriers operate fleets efficient enough to make the SmartWay High Performer list for carbon emissions.

Carbon is a leading indicator of fuel use, meaning that SmartWay High Performers for carbon also consume less fuel for every mile they travel and for every ton of freight they move. For example, for every trip they make, high performing SmartWay truckload carriers for carbon move heavier loads, packing their trailers more efficiently – and still consume thousands of gallons of less fuel annually, as compared to their SmartWay peers.
