Dynamic Transit has made great strides as a trucking and transportation company by keeping up to date with industry trends and uncovering ways that we can be more efficient and effective. By joining the SmartWay Transport Partnership and ensuring our vehicles are CARB compliant, we have discovered that efficiency and effectiveness also help us to become more environmentally conscious.
We are proud of our commitment to air quality and continue to strive for ways in which we can do more for the environment and minimize our carbon footprint.
Dynamic Transit is a member of the SmartWay Transport Partnership, an innovative collaboration between the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the freight industry designed to increase energy efficiency while significantly reducing greenhouse gases and air pollution. Our association with the Partnership helps us to improve fuel efficiency, increase environmental performance and increases our customers’ supply chain sustainability.
Dynamic Transit will contribute to the Partnership’s goal to reduce 33 to 66 million metric tons of carbon dioxide and up to 200,000 tons of nitrogen oxide by improving the environmental performance of our freight operations. Carbon dioxide is the most common greenhouse gas, and nitrogen oxide is an air pollutant that contributes to smog. By joining SmartWay Transport Partnership, Dynamic Transit demonstrates its strong environmental leadership and corporate responsibility.

In 1998, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) identified particulate emissions from diesel-fueled engines (diesel PM) as toxic air contaminants (TACs). The CARB regulations were developed to help make diesel-fueled engines as clean as possible by establishing state-of-the-art technology requirements or emission standards to reduce diesel PM emissions.
All of the vehicles operated by Dynamic Transit meet the CARB regulations and are maintained or updated to continue their CARB compliance. Our diesel-fueled Transport Refrigeration Units (TRUs) or Reefers meet with CARB in-use performance standards and our tractor trailers follow the Tractor-Trailer Greenhouse Gas Regulation (GHG) so that every Dynamic Transit vehicle is certified and eligible to transport any acceptable material or product to the state of California.
There is a ripple effect of maintaining our CARB compliance in that what is good for helping to keep the air in California clean is also good for keeping the air clean in any other state in which our drivers are traveling. Just another way that Dynamic Transit is able to reduce our carbon footprint and prove our commitment to air quality.
