Smart Freight: Applications of Information and Communications Technologies to Freight System Efficiency

This paper focuses on the energy savings potential of information and communications technology (ICT) as applied to freight transportation. It identifies savings that can be realized by reducing miles traveled, improving the efficiency of freight networks, and maximizing freight vehicle operations. Case studies are included of companies using ICT to reduce emissions and conserve fuel. Barriers to implementation are reviewed, recommendations made, and the role of public policy is examined.
