  • Ico statictext Transport 5: Transport hazardous materials safely
  • Ico statictext TRANSPORT 1: MANAGE LIFECYCLE PERFORMANCE OF DELIVERY FLEET
  • Ico checkbox Whether operated in-house or by third parties, the way that a delivery fleet is managed contributes significantly to the cost and environmental impacts of transporting goods.
  • Ico checkbox Consider the following best practices to manage the lifecycle performance of your delivery fleet.
  • Ico checkbox Specify fuel-efficient fleet technologies and design improvements when sourcing new fleet vehicles, such as increased aerodynamics, vehicle weight reductions, improved engine and transmission designs, improved rolling efficiency of tires and more efficient accessories.
  • Ico checkbox Perform regular preventive fleet maintenance and inspections, including items like tire pressure, which should be checked frequently.
  • Ico checkbox Provide driver training on fuel-efficient driving techniques (e.
  • Ico checkbox Reduce unnecessary idling of delivery vehicles.
  • Ico checkbox Implement policies to restrict maximum vehicle speed or program engines not to exceed certain speeds.
  • Ico checkbox Install on-board or dashboard fuel monitoring devices and train drivers on their use.
  • Ico checkbox Implement driver incentive programs to reward or recognize fuel efficiency gains or fuel-efficient driving techniques.
  • Ico statictext TRANSPORT 2: SHIFT TO MODES OR EQUIPMENT THAT USE LESS FOSSIL FUEL
  • Ico checkbox Ninety-five percent of transport worldwide is fuelled by oil.
  • Ico checkbox Shift loads to more fuel-efficient modes.
  • Ico checkbox Use freight vehicles fuelled by alternative energy, such as those listed in the following table, to reduce costs, fuel consumption and emissions of freight transport by road.
  • Ico statictext TRANSPORT 3: OPTIMIZE TRANSPORTATION LOADS AND ROUTES
  • Ico checkbox The biggest factor affecting the sustainable management of freight transport is load factor—the percentage of the capacity of a truck, rail car, or air or marine container that is used.
  • Ico checkbox Increasing load factors as well as decreasing distances travelled will result in improved asset utilization, lower costs per unit shipped, reduced fuel consumption, lower emissions and reduced community impacts from noise and traffic congestion.
  • Ico checkbox Consider the following best practices to optimize the efficiency of inbound and outbound freight transport loads and routes.
  • Ico checkbox Avoid unnecessary product packaging and use standardized and modularized packaging, pallets, or containers to optimize transport load factors.
  • Ico checkbox Use load planning software to optimize loading of railcars, trucks, or air or marine containers in terms of weight, dimension, safety and legal variables.
  • Ico checkbox Maximize bi-directional load factors through the use of common carriers (versus typically under-utilized private fleets), backhauls, co-shipping, double-stacked containers and Internet-based loadmatching services.
  • Ico checkbox Use route planning software to reduce total transport distances.
