This document provides detailed background information on the data sources, calculation methods, and assumptions used within the new SmartWay Truck Tool, version 2.0.11. The SmartWay Truck Tool utilizes the most up-to-date emission factors, in combination with detailed vehicle activity data, to estimate emissions and associated performance metrics. While the primary purpose of earlier versions of the truck carrier tool (FLEET) was to help fleets estimate the likely fuel and emission reduction benefits of specific advanced technologies (e.g., through the adoption of certified aerodynamic retrofits) relative to a precontrol baseline, the primary purpose of the new tool is to help fleets calculate actual pollutant emissions for specific truck types and applications and track their emissions performance over time. Shippers can, in turn, use the data that truck carriers report using these tools to develop more advanced emissions inventories associated with their freight activity and to track their emissions performance over time.
