Green Freight

What is Green Freight?

Green freight refers to a collection of technologies and practices that improve the efficiency of the freight transport and provide a means to benchmark and track performance. Green freight programs promote these technologies and practices across the freight sector to help cut costs, track carbon, and benefit the environment.   

Domestic and international freight activity will quadruple by 2050 if trends persist. With estimates that the sector is responsible for 10% or all carbon emissions, and heavy-goods vehicles account for a disproportionate share of oil consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, and air pollution, and so represent an important target for emissions control through the adoption of fuel-efficiency and emissions-control technologies.

But… decarbonising freight is more challenging than other sectors of the economy, and technology alone will not be sufficient to achieve this goal. A systems approach will be needed—one that includes advanced vehicle technologies and measures to make freight collection and delivery more ergonomic and shift freight to the most sustainable modes and optimise supply chain activity.

Numerous green freight programs and related efforts have developed around the world in the past decade. Most of these programs have developed a variety of approaches to promote the adoption of energy-saving and emission reducing strategies. Their focus, the types and numbers of members, and their data collection, performance benchmarking, and reporting methodologies depend on the transport modes they address, the pollutants and performance metrics of interest, and their geographic regions.

Whilst FLS is a fleet free company, there are two distinct ways we deliver a green freight policy.

The carriers we select for routes make a huge contributing to emissions both directing from fuel used and the manufacture of the fuel needed. So to mitigate this impact we:

  • Select the closest carrier to the freight collection point.
  • Can that carrier make another delivery on route to reduce empty miles.
  • Choose the shortest most fuel-efficient route to destination.
  • After delivery, can we fill that vehicle with another close by load to bring them home or close to next collection point. (return load)
  • An empty journey means another vehicle is travelling alongside you with freight you could have been carrying.

Many Hauliers can only provide you with a vehicle that’s available in their yard, using a company like FLS and its huge pool of carriers means we can select the nearest available vehicle for your collection, not only do you get your vehicle on site quicker it has of course produced fewer emissions getting to you.
