The Smallest Footprint Can Have a Huge Impact

Carbon Footprint
Summary
“The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the EU Commission advise that transportation is one of the largest contributors to the total greenhouse gas emissions.”
Details
Try imagining how many trucks are travelling around the world, carrying the products we consume everyday; our books, our medicine, our furniture.

Now, imagine how many border crossings we have around the world and how many trucks and cars are standing in line and consuming fuel that adds to our greenhouse emissions. Also, imagine how many empty trucks are travelling every day on our roads.

SOLUTION
Details
The MDDEAS will provide new digital tools that will improve the planning and coordination of trade activities between the real economy participants. With these new digital tools we can increase capacity utilization of trucks, trains, ships and railroads throughout the trade pipeline as well as increasing the speed of throughput at ports and border crossings.

Moreover, these digital tools will reduce multimodal freight congestion at high-volume ports and other logistic chokepoints.
Summary
“New digital tools can increase capacity utilization of conveyances, speed throughput at ports and border crossings and reduce multi-modal freight congestion."
BENEFITS
Summary
“Reduction of fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions”
Details
  • The reduction of fuel consumption through increased capacity utilization throughout the logistics pipeline, especially at ports and border crossings.
  • Lower carbon monoxide emissions of fuel consumption by decreased congestion at high-volume ports and other logistics chokepoints.
