 A New Model for Estimating Carbon Emissions for LTL

Truckload emission calculations have been used for some time to offer a rough estimate for less than truckload (LTL) emissions. Researchers at MIT’s Center for Transportation & Logistics (MIT CTL) collaborated with C.H. Robinson; TMC, a division of C.H. Robinson; and a national LTL carrier to investigate how accurate those estimations were and to develop more accurate models for estimating LTL carbon emissions.

As part of the research, an easy to use formula was derived from the new models which can immediately be implemented.

 



 

Truckload Capacity in 2014: What’s Causing the Capacity Crunch and What Can Shippers Do About It?

Freight transportation capacity has been subjected to enormous pressure from a number of sources this year, including new and more stringent regulations, extreme weather, increased operating costs, and a chronic shortage of experienced drivers.

 

This white paper will show shippers how they can prepare for future volatility in the transportation market by using supply and demand, as well as rate trend data for North American lanes to better forecast potential capacity crunches and the impact on rates.

 


Be an Attractive LTL Shipper

Certain shipping and freight characteristics can make it challenging for less than truckload (LTL) carriers to serve companies and maintain profitability. Shippers can add process efficiencies and make their LTL freight easier to handle to become more attractive customers. This white paper covers:

•Tips to make LTL freight more attractive
•Practices that help make LTL carriers more efficient
•Common accessorials—and what to do about them
Attractive LTL shippers are more likely to achieve greater rate stability, potentially reduce costs, and become preferred customers when capacity is tight
