Searching for:
  • "Carbon emissions (CO2)"
    Emitted as a byproduct of vehicle engines that burn any form of petroleum, commonly gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel in the transportation industry, CO2 is a greenhouse gas that contributes to heat being trapped in the Earth’s atmosphere. In urban freight, we can see this play out as the number of home deliveries continues to increase. Fuel-consuming last-mile vehicles like box trucks and cargo vans drive around cities, back and forth from warehouses, and spend time cruising when parking spaces are unavailable.
