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_...).
