Transport’s Carbon & Energy Future

#CleanTransport : Use less fuel, move more freight

Measure the net benefits of electric freight vehicles

An EY study shows electric cars aren't a drain on tax revenue after all. Not only do EV owners pay more tax than petrol/diesel cars, there's a 6X greater net benefit to the economy from reduced external costs of greenhouse gases, local air pollution and noise pollution. As electric freight vans and trucks come into play, these net benefits will amplify across society. But how can transporters and freight shippers measure and address the harm and costs they cause? A unique solution is now available in Australia and New Zealand. The @TK'Blue Agency calculates the societal, environmental, and economic costs

Transport sector is a Carbon Laggard

Pre-coronavirus estimates had freight transport volumes tripling by 2050 with an associated business-as-usual doubling in greenhouse gas emissions from an industry that remains 99% dependent on oil for energy. ClimateWorks estimates that if all sectors commit to achieving a Paris 2 degrees warming pathway, by 2030 most sectors can reduce emissions by about half to two-thirds, except Transport which will remain at current levels. To reach Net Zero by 2050, Transport relies on proven technology for electrifying light vehicles reaching price parity with internal combustion engine cars by 2025 and emerging solutions for heavy transport across road, rail, marine and

Targeting transport emissions in your supply chain

So, you’re a large Retailer, Manufacturer or Resources company that moves a lot of freight and has publicly committed to reduce emissions in your value chain. Now what? Targets are a critical first step that precedes the real challenge: to measure, control and improve the impact of your transport activities on the environment and human health. It’s a daunting task to measure the environmental impacts of your global multimodal transport activities, with all shapes and sizes of trucks, vans, trains, planes, ships and warehouses, sometimes dedicated to your products and often shared with others. It’s long been a topic in

TK’BLUE AGENCY Expands in Australia, New Zealand & Singapore

The International Non-Financial Transport Rating Agency TK'Blue, announces the creation of a new Agency in Australia, also covering New Zealand and Singapore. The objective is to offer shippers, carriers and freight forwarders in the Southern zone its solutions for improving and enhancing the economic and environmental performance of their logistics choices. Thanks to the online tools, available 24/7, they will be able, along with more than 10,000 users in Europe and beyond, to have powerful and dynamic analyses enabling them to collaborate transparently to reduce the societal cost of the impacts of transport on the planet and its citizens.

Trucks Rev up Australia’s Emissions

Transport red-lines as Australia’s carbon budget is spent years early Australia’s Transport emissions for Q4/FY2018 were again the highest on record. By 2030, will grow +29% on 2005 levels under current and proposed policies Global freight transport volumes will triple by 2050 Tyranny of distance For the third consecutive year, Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions are at record highs, driven largely by transport emissions and the continuing rapid rise in diesel used by trucks. Heavy-duty vehicles produce most of every city’s smog and toxic air pollution and road freight is the fastest growing greenhouse gas emitter on the planet. Growing populations
