Transportation is the backbone of the world economy. In times past, it has gone mostly unnoticed by the general public. However, during this unprecedented time in the fight against COVID-19, transportation; air cargo, rail, interstate trucking, intrastate trucking, and final mile delivery have been on the front lines and in our hearts and minds. These fleets, selfless drivers and transportation workers have taken great risks to move essential goods/products/services to where they are needed.
Environmentally, the world transportation industry is a large consumer of fossil fuel. What we plan to exhibit during this EarthX virtual panel discussion is, the lengths and expense many of the transportation companies are going in order to minimize carbon footprints. This includes managing tire pressure for maximum fuel economy and tire longevity resulting in fewer replacements, exploring the use of electric vehicles, managing drive times, weight capacity, and balance.
