Which are the most climate effective measures?
The freight sector plays an important role dealing with climate change and in reaching the Paris Agreement goals. But which measures are in fact the most efficient in the freight transport business?
A new study, funded by the Coalition for Reimagined Mobility shows that two measures in particular have the most significant individual impact on CO2 emissions: implementing smart steaming by optimising port call operations in the maritime sector and using digital technology to improve truck utilisation in the road haulage sector through higher asset sharing. Each has the capacity to limit CO2 emission growth to 40% between 2019 and 2050, the study said. (ben)
