Freight and Logistics

Within freight and logistics, we are exploring several key subtopics that contribute to sustainable transport practices. Eco-driving techniques play a crucial role in reducing fuel consumption and emissions by promoting efficient driving and optimising route planning. Fleet renewal initiatives focus on replacing older, high-emission vehicles with newer, cleaner models to minimise the carbon footprint of the logistics sector. Shifting freight from road to rail or water offers significant environmental benefits by reducing congestion and emissions. In addition, smart logistics solutions use advanced technologies such as data analytics to optimise supply chain operations, minimise empty miles and improve overall efficiency.
