ATRI LAUNCHES COMPENDIUM OF SUSTAINABLE FREIGHT PRACTICES

Sep 18, 2014 | Reports

Arlington, VA – The American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) today launched a new compendium of sustainable freight practices on its website, www.atri-online.org. The compendium identifies a number of sustainable practices being used by the trucking industry ranging from driver training, idle reduction and speed management to vehicle aerodynamics, tires and engine systems. In addition to identifying sustainable practices, the compendium provides research findings on the costs and benefits associated with these practices.

”Sustainable practices are an emerging focus for trucking companies. ATRI’s compendium is a great resource for gaining insight into what many of these practices are as well as the potential costs and benefits associated with them,” said Chad England, Chief Executive Officer of C.R. England. Mr. England is a member of the ATRI Research Advisory Committee.

Designed as a one-stop shop for information on motor carrier sustainable practices, the compendium also identifies how public sector practices such as congestion mitigation, research and testing, and the use of standards can advance sustainable freight practices. Research findings quantifying the benefits generated from these public sector practices are also provided.
ATRI is the trucking industry’s 501(c)(3) not-for-profit research organization. It is engaged in critical research relating to freight transportation’s essential role in maintaining a safe, secure and efficient transportation system.
