ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY ACTIONS – FREIGHT TRANSPORT

LET'S ACT TOGETHER

The little that can be done, the very little that can be done, must be done.

Théodore Monod

Choose a haulier who can optimise loading rates, limit empty runs and train drivers in environmentally friendly driving techniques.

Better filling of transport units reduces both costs and the associated greenhouse gases. The same applies to empty runs made by the transport units. Training drivers in environmentally friendly road driving also helps limit GHG emissions by improving consumption.

Limit your "tonne-kilometres".

Maximising the loading of flows and optimising journeys reduces the mileage travelled and optimises the loading rate of transport vehicles. A decrease in tonne.kilometres (tkm) leads to a reduction in the associated GHG emissions.

Promote transport methods using alternative energies

The use of “cleaner” methods of transport, either by changing means of transport or by using alternative energies (for road and river transport) contributes to reducing GHG emissions.

Encourage the use of carriers who commit to a CSR approach

Choosing carriers committed to a CSR approach ensures that the carrier has undertaken environmentally favourable actions and included those behaviours in its activities.
