Tips for making transport more sustainable

Transportation is a very large industry all over the world. For example, packages are sent via trucks, ships and planes and goods are managed and stored in large warehouses. This is all to ensure that consumers get their orders quickly. But this industry also creates a lot of fuel emissions which is not very good for the environment. That’s why more and more organizations are making efforts to make transport more sustainable. Are you curious about how this can be done and what measures need to be taken? Then read on, we will be happy to explain it to you.

Replacing fuel

A good solution for making transport more sustainable is to replace the fuel that is currently used for transport with fuel that is better for the environment. This is now mainly used for ships, but it can also be applied to other forms of transport. In addition, we see a lot of vehicles becoming electric. This way a vehicle runs on energy and therefore no fuel is used. This reduces the emission of gases, so we are all working towards a better environment.


Furthermore, warehousing and distribution can also take into account the packaging of goods. For example, there is still a lot of use of large packaging, which leaves a lot of air in it, and plastic packaging. This can be made more sustainable, by replacing the plastic with cardboard or recyclable material and by making the packaging smaller. This means that the packages are smaller and more products fit in the same cargo. In this way, the space in ships, planes or trucks can be used optimally. The space that was previously taken up by large packages can now be used by additional products and goods that can be transported along.
