About Us 

What we do

Helping companies to improve their Supply Chain Operations via better Logistics Sustainability.

The Challenges

Currently, transportation contributes roughly 28% of the United States’ total greenhouse gas (GHG) making it the largest source of GHG emissions in the country.

GHG emissions from the transportation sector may double by 2050 due to the rate of adoption of vehicles in developing countries.

Highly urbanized cities and increasing trends in Omni-channel operations increase CO2 emissions.

Online shopping is growing in the United States and represents 9.6% of the total retail trade in 2018.

The increase of logistics intensity due to e-commerce is pushing companies to offer faster and more frequent deliveries, which increases fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

 

The Opportunities

While companies face many challenges in their logistics and supply chain operations, there are plenty of opportunities to reduce not only their environmental impact but also costs. Since many emissions reduction projects revolve around increasing fuel efficiency, sustainability positively impacts the bottom line as well.

Companies can incorporate sustainable logistics through different initiatives, such as:

  • Optimize last-mile operations by selecting proper vehicles according to the characteristics of the routes.
  • Study consumer behavior and the environmental impact of same-day delivery: Analyze the drivers that affect the customer’s willingness to wait for home delivery after providing environmental impact information.
  • Design sustainable and cost-effective transportation modes: Help planners make choices that can be expressed not only in monetary terms but also in environmental benefits associated with the implementation of these modes.
  • Identify what patterns or characteristics within different regions can explain the variability of CO2 emissions among them.
  • Analyze how to improve routing decisions, what is the effect of topography in these decisions, and when solutions that consider topography affect the distance-min route.
  • Analyze the relationship between CO2 emissions in transportation and driver behavioral patterns.
