Why is carbon reporting so important to the trucking industry?

The trucking industry faces unique downstream pressure from their customers who are pressured by their stakeholders as well as imminent governmental regulation. Why? Because carriers like you represent the single largest source of carbon emissions in virtually all supply chains.

Keep your best customers – and find new ones

Preparing your company for emissions reporting not only helps you keep your top customers from finding other carriers, but makes you more attractive to new shippers looking for carbon responsible carriers.

Here's what's driving the need for carriers to report

Supply Chain Impact

Trucking is a the biggest part of supply chains and is responsible for the transport of 72.6% of all U.S. freight (ATA), making trucking carriers the highest target for emission reductions, especially HDVs (Heavy-Duty Vehicles).

Customer Reporting Pressure

Companies wishing to report their entire carbon footprint must account for their largest source of emissions: Scope 3 categories 4 and 9, upstream and downstream transportation and distribution. In other words, carriers like you that ship their products.

Market and Regulatory Pressures

As market and regulatory pressures increase, it is forcing carriers to be conversant in a completely new and unfamiliar business to them. They are under pressure to report on things they potentially do not understand.

Too Complex to do Yourself

Without software automation, the process can be manual, and the calculations highly complex, in addition to adhering to a wide range of scopes in state federal, and international compliance standards.
