The Centre for Sustainable Road Freight is a collaborative venture between industry, Cambridge University, Heriot Watt University and organizations in the freight and logistics sectors. Sustainable Road Freight summarizes the first five years of their vital research, taking a cross-disciplinary approach to reducing the carbon imprint in logistics. It is an important reference guide for students, researchers and practitioners. The research presented in Sustainable Road Freight proves that the best way to achieve very deep reductions in CO2 emissions from the road freight sector is to combine highly-focused vehicle engineering with improvements to freight distribution systems. Key freight operators have set the agenda and spearheaded the adoption of the results by the road freight industry. These include John Lewis, Tesco, DHL, Wincanton along with vehicle industry partners including Volvo, Goodyear, Firestone and others. With an emphasis on technology management and how this will change logistics, this essential text with online supporting resources include input frameworks, case study vignettes and PowerPoints for lecturers.
