Yellow is a charter partner in the Environmental Protection Agency’s SmartWay voluntary emissions program.
We were present at the first industry planning meeting that led to the SmartWay program and we have been a member since 2004. To qualify each year, our fleet completes an extensive emissions model that takes into account numerous factors such as mileage, payload and intermodal use.
Our objectives are to continue to quantify our transport emissions and work to achieve year-over-year reductions in our CO2 grams per ton mile metric.
We collectively employ a number of emission reduction practices that can be categorized into three areas: Equipment, Network/Technology and People.
