How to reduce the carbon footprint of road freight on supply chains?

Abstract

Rendering the supply chain more carbon-friendly is an innovative idea progressively adopted by industry. Transport accounts for one-fifth of the carbon emissions that are generated on French territory. Among the different transport modes, road transport is the one responsible for the majority of transport emissions. Our research focuses on the CO2 emissions along the supply chain due to road freight transport. Accordingly, we conduct a greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions assessment of a transport company. The main objectives of the study are twofold: identifying the main emission sources and improving green supply chains.
