Stack In Truck Internal Leaderboard


The result of our truckload optimization solutions is that our clients move the same amount of product using a fewer amount of trucks. The environmental benefits are as significant as the financial ones.

It's mostly about me!

Greenhouse gas emissions can be calculated for every move.
Here’s a conversion constant based on 7.0 mpg diesel trucks: 0.0014514944.

So, if you can re-design your logistics plan, load more units per truck and eliminate miles, then multiply your number of miles saved times this constant to get a good estimate of the number of metric tons of CO2 gas reduction.

(Example: 100,000 total miles x 0.0014514944 = 145.15 metric tons of CO2 reduction.)

What about your shipping lanes?
How many metric tons of greenhouse emissions will be eliminated?

Num of Loads per Month = x
Num of Miles per Load = y
Total miles = x*y
Diesel (gallons) = (x*y)/7
Greenhouse Gas Emissions (metric tons) = x*y*.0014514944

We are committed to the EDF’s 5 Principles for Greener Freight

  1. Get the most out of every move. Combine freight and adapt packaging to maximize cube utilization. A fuller move is as greener move.
  2. Choose the most carbon-efficient transport mode. Favor ocean over air and rail over truck.
  3. Collaborate. Root out opportunities for savings through discussions with internal departments and with suppliers, customers, vendors – even competitors.
  4. Redesign your logistics network. Continually optimize your network to maximize cost savings and minimize greenhouse gas emissions.
  5. Demand cleaner equipment and practices. Urge your logistics providers to use cleaner trucks and cargo handling equipment, and employ other pollution-reducing practices at busy transport hubs.
