GHG Emissions in Finished Vehicle Logistics – Road to Net Zero
As OEMs pursue ambitious GHG emissions reduction targets, suppliers, automotive manufacturers and logistics service providers must work together to balance lower emissions with other relevant KPIs such as delivery times and costs. Finished vehicle logistics will play an essential role in achieving these goals and measures to tackle emissions. In Europe and the USA, the logistics transport sector is responsible for more than a quarter of greenhouse gas emissions. Most of the emissions come from road traffic (71%). Only the energy and heat generation sector produces more significant amounts of emissions.
CO2 Reductions in the Finished Vehicle Logistics Industry
In the EU and the US, the logistics transport sector is responsible for more than a quarter of total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Only in the area of energy and heat generation do larger quantities of emissions arise. Using the example of the EU, the following graphic shows how GHG emissions are distributed among the various modes of logistics and transport.
