4 Elements, Inc. is proud to be one of the first 3PL's to qualify for the SmartWay Transport Partnership. We believe our ethical commitment to our environment can be facilitated on behalf of our customers and carriers by our membership in SmartWay, thus helping us all to be more responsible in combating global warming.

SmartWay Transport is a voluntary partnership between various freight industry sectors and EPA that establishes incentives for fuel efficiency improvements and greenhouse gas emissions reductions. By 2012, this initiative aims to reduce between 33 - 66 million metric tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and up to 200,000 tons of nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions per year. At the same time, the initiative will result in fuel savings of up to 150 million barrels of oil annually.

There are three primary components of the program: creating partnerships, reducing all unnecessary engine idling, and increasing the efficiency and use of rail and intermodal operations.
