A Better Approach for Calculating LTL Carbon Emissions

LTL Emissions

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. Read More…
