https://www.epa.gov/smartway Smartway certifications is basically energy-star for trucking companies and the railroads, you fillout an application, and they if it's good you get a certificate in the mail and you can claim your Smartway certified. I've seen companies that love to tell everyone they are certified, in reality, no one really cares.

I agree with what your saying, the only difference is between you and millennials is that you were taught not to put your personal stuff out there for others to see. You rarely heard about teenage pregnancy, or anything like that because if something go out everyone in your area knew about it and it was a scandal, or you only heard about the big stuff on the news. Plus you were probably raised that if you whined about anything then you would be considered a pussy. Where as the kids these days were brought up with facebook, and snapchat, and everything needs to be put out there because everyone else is doing it. There is just alot more noise now then with previous generations.

As someone who owns 25 class 8 trucks, I like the idea, but I'm worried about how this will actually work. I'm all for going electric, as long as it's cost efficient vs what is currently available. You currently still need a driver, it can not be driver-less for a long time. Here is the thing, one of the main points of a drivers job is going inside a warehouse to find out what dock he is supposed to go into, then back into said dock and wait to get loaded/unload, part of that is securing the load, and then closing the back doors. If this thing is truly driver-less then who will do that. I could see this work for something like moving freight between 2 different facilities owned by the same company, what will happen when a small company that might not even have a dock, and have to hand load everything.
