Raising the Bar on Sustainability Reporting

This paper provides a technical guide to calculating the sustainability of Flock Freight’s shared truckload solution.

Flock Freight Re-Evaluated and Improved How We Measure Our Environmental Impact

Heavy-duty trucking is the biggest emitter of greenhouse gases in the United States.

To improve accountability among shipping businesses (and, ultimately, drive down supply chain emissions), technology company Flock Freight is measuring shared truckload (STL) customers’ environmental impact and sharing performance metrics via detailed reports.

This guide describes Flock Freight’s process for tracking and analyzing STL emissions and includes the firm’s:

  • Updated STL calculation
  • The calculation for comparing the emissions of STL and less than truckload (LTL)
  • The calculation for comparing the emissions of STL and truckload (TL)

The Need for Transparency Around Freight Shipping’s Environmental Impact

Transportation accounts for the largest portion (29%) of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the United States and 14% of emissions globally. Within transportation, heavy-duty trucks are the fastest-growing contributor to emissions.

Cutting transportation emissions is a vital step toward fighting climate change. As supply chain activity increases, the shipment of United States goods is projected to grow another 23.5% by 2025 and reach 45% by 2040. With more shipping will come more transportation and an alarming increase in fuel consumption.

Download and keep reading to see how STL reduces emissions by roughly 15-40% compared to LTL and TL.
