Moving freight around Australia will soon attract carbon tax.  You can reduce this new cost in 2 ways: Use less fuel Use cleaner fuel While they control fuel use, transporters need their customers' help to manage carbon liability. Moving the discussion past who carries the carbon tax burden, the question now becomes: How can Freight
