The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's SmartWay program has been all over the news lately. What is it? Why is it important? What does it mean for independent tire dealers? Find out in the June 2010 issue of Modern Tire Dealer!
"It's no secret that fuel efficiency has been a top concern among trucking fleets for many years," writes MTD Senior Editor Mike Manges in his feature article, Tiremakers go green with SmartWay.
"However, up until recently, any effort by fleet owners to reduce fuel consumption and, in turn, their rigs' greenhouse gas emissions by running low rolling resistance tires on tractors and trailers was strictly voluntary."
That all changed this past January when regulations designed to reduce truck emissions went into effect in California, which has since thrust the SmartWay program into the national spotlight.
