      Therefore, producing goods means transportation over longer distances, and that means more fuel consumption. This much movement demands an extraordinary amount of energy, consuming over a billion barrels of oil. Freight transportation is a large contributor to air pollution. FREIGHT ENERGY USE DISAGGREGATED BY COMMODITY: COMPARISONS AND DISCUSSION. The analysis of energy consumption in freight transportation is almost always approached by disaggregating overall energy consumption by mode, which then provides a basis for understanding trends and underlying factors that influence them and for developing conservation policies.

      For freight transport, trucks consume significantly more energy per tonne-km than rail or ship transport. Figure Energy intensity of passenger and freight transport (8 EU countries) Source: International Energy Studies, Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, as compiled from recognised national sources. Objective Reduce energy use per transport. Public Transportation. Individuals can save more than $9, per year by taking public transportation instead of driving. Moreover, this mode can lead to substantial environmental benefits. If your commute is miles round trip, the switch to public transportation could lower your carbon footprint by 4, pounds annually.

      1. Energy Consumption in Transport and Environmental Pollution: Transport requires energy mainly for vehicle operation and to some extent also for manufacturing of the vehicle. Figure depicts the transport energy system and pollution. The energy consumption in transport sector . A freight transportation case study (Rotterdam to Antwerp and Genova) demonstrates the construction and application of the graphical tool. For this case study, the electric train is the transport mode that offers the lowest energy consumption and minimum by: 4.

Additional Physical Format: Online version: Mudge, Richard R. Energy use in freight transportation. [Washington, D.C.]: The Office, [] (OCoLC) although US road freight vehicles use about three-quarters of freight transport energy, they lift less than half of all freight on a tonnage basis.

This is in part because of the higher energy intensity of road transport, and in part because of the nature of goods typically transported by road. Transportation Energy Data Book. The Transportation Energy Data Book (TEDB) is a compendium of data on transportation with an emphasis on energy.

This section contains an overview of the aggregate transportation sector, combining both passenger and freight segments of this sector. The specific energy intensity indicators for passenger and freight can be obtained from the links, passenger transportation, or freight transportation.

Energy sources are used in several major ways. Gasoline is used in cars, motorcycles, light trucks, and boats. Aviation gasoline is used in many types of airplanes. Distillate fuels are used mainly by trucks, buses, and trains and in boats and ships.

About Energy Freight Systems We do what we know best. We deliver customized solutions to companies that need support with transportation of project cargo from factory to job-site as well as companies that need transportation services for conventional cargo to reach their final customers.

The Future of Energy Demand for Freight Transportation: The Impact of China and India 3 Key Points China and India’s movement of freight have in recent decades produced a significant increase in energy demand. Economic shifts and population growth in these two countries have played a major role in driving this development.

This work also enables reductions in air pollution, road fatalities and congestion, while improving passenger and freight transport access. consumption, and passenger transport energy is much larger than freight energy. The percentages for rail, air and sea include f reight as well as pas senger transport.

As shown in Figureair transportation represents almost half of nonhighway transportation energy use, or about 10 percent of total transportation energy use in the United States. Several studies have examined opportunities for increasing energy efficiency in commercial passenger aircraft (see Kahn Ribeiro et al., ).
