Core Elements of SmartWay – There are three core components of the SmartWay Program.

The SmartWay Transport Partnership

Freight shippers, carriers, logistics companies and other stakeholders partner with EPA to measure, benchmark and improve logistics operations so they can reduce their environmental footprint.
