Reducing transportation sector greenhouse gas emissions case studies in operational strategies

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

Several case studies pertaining to operational strategies that reduce the greenhouse gas (GHG) emitted by US transportation sector. Lakeside Logistics, non-asset-based, multiservice, third-party logistics (3PL) company began its initiative to reduce GHG emission from its shipper customers and joined EPA' SmartWay Transport Partnership in 2007. The strategies SmartWay partners use include idle reduction technologies such as auxiliary power units and other operational strategies such as tag-team drivers to ensure the reduction of GHG emission. Lakeside provides data to its customers with an Executive Dashboard tool, which capture data generated by existing SmartWay emissions tracking software. Urban planning ensures a total vehicle-derived C02 emission reduction by 7-10% by 2050 such as Atlantic Station community is under development on the site of an abandoned steel mill in Atlanta, which will accommodate more than 12,000 residents and employees.
