The continuing integration of an expanding global economy means moving more goods further and faster, both internationally and locally. Emissions and efficiency standards for aviation, shipping, and heavy-duty vehicles are key to managing growth in the freight sector. Some useful general and statistical sources to complement the information here include the CAI-Asia Green Freight and Logistics site (http://www.greenfreightandlogistics.org/), the U.S. Bureau of Transportation Statistics (http://www.bts.gov/programs/freight_transportation/), and Eurostat (http://epp.eurostat.ec.europa.eu/statistics_explained/index.php/Freight_...).
Estimates heavy fuel oil (HFO) use, HFO carriage, the use and carriage of other fuels, BC emissions, and emissions of other air and climate pollutants in the Arctic for the year 2015, with projections to 2020 and 2025.
A step-by-step resource for conducting a freight assessment when the ultimate goal is to develop a green freight program. This document includes useful guidance and best practices on executing each of the four key elements of a freight assessment and provides examples of the types of analysis that the data collected will enable.
MEPC’s 70th session will consider two topics that may greatly reduce the amount of HFO used in the Arctic: a global marine fuel sulfur cap of 0.5% (currently it is 3.5%), and whether or not HFO use in the Arctic should be formally placed on the MEPC agenda. This paper provides key information needed to evaluate the potential risks HFO has to the Arctic environment.
Summarizes the final rulemaking on new Phase 2 standards to reduce HDV fuel consumption and GHG emissions. Together with Phase 1, the increased efficiency of HD trucks and buses will cut fuel use by over one-third by 2050.
