After last Friday’s class, I started researching transport management systems and it was a surprise to discover that both logistics operations and transport are responsible for 25% of Co2 emissions in Spain.
That is why I have decided to write about this and some keys to make Spanish logistics a more sustainable activity:
Lean & Green: companies adhering to this code must commit themselves to reducing their emissions of greenhouse gases, at least 20% within a maximum period of 5 years
Alternative propulsion systems: use propulsion systems alternative to diesel such as liquefied natural gas or directly hybrid or electric vehicles for more sustainable logistics
Software applications to obtain data on routes, charges and carbon footprint: knowing how much the company pollutes, through what transport, how often and its impact is the first step to reduce these contaminations
Intermodality: combining two or more means of transport can be more sustainable, especially if it does not require a quick shipment.
Green logistics: try to put value to the efficiency from the ecological point of view to balance this principle with the economic one.
Solar light: take advantage of natural resources such as sunlight for daytime taking into account that logistics centers work day and night, reducing electricity consumption and artificial light
