Sustainable transportation insight and eco-friendly initiatives

When you combine increasing concerns about environmental preservation with the challenges companies face attempting to conserve costs, green transportation and sustainable mobility become relevant topics. Because trucks alone account for 57 percent of global freight emissions, transportation and logistics service providers are tasked with minimizing their ecological impact — while also maintaining economical business practices. We created a whitepaper to shed light on the subject and offer examples of green transportation ideas in action.

Through efforts that include recycling programs and energy-efficient equipment upgrades, we’re able to limit emissions and reduce costs long term.
