The SmartWay Truck Tool is being used across North America by transportation companies to calculate, track, and reduce emissions. Along with the environmental and health benefits associated with a SmartWay emissions reduction strategy, the tool also makes business sense: it helps to save money and can attract the business of SmartWay shippers. It also provides partners with the opportunity to benchmark again similar fleets.The tool utilizes the most up-to-date emission factors, in combination with detailed vehicle activity data, to estimate emissions and associated performance metrics.

The Cetaris Greenhouse Gas Emissions module employs guidelines from the SmartWay program to calculate greenhouse gas emissions at the click of a button. Our application uses the asset spec information from your Cetaris fleet maintenance solution in combination with the consumed fuel, distance traveled, highway rural driving cycle, and mile drive cycle to calculate Co2, Ch4, PM2.5, PM10, NoX, and N20. For usability and accuracy the code calculates at the asset level to bring you closer to a Fleet of One mindset.
