Freightera is designed to link B2B shippers to the most efficient, well-run carrier or transportation company for each route or service area.
About 80% of the time, the same carrier that offers the lowest price will also be most fuel-efficient and use the best available emissions reduction technology. This means cleaner air, less risk of climate change, better service and lower cost, all from the same carrier.
Our Green Freight Marketplace allows shippers to see which carriers are either participating in emission reduction programs like the US EPA/Environment Canada SmartWay Partnership, or using lower emission rail for long haul. Shippers can book the lowest price option, or click "Low Emission" to see only the SmartWay and rail carriers, sorted by price.
Freightera is preferentially bringing in new carriers that offer the highest service quality, the best price and lowest emissions for each lane and region, so shippers can continue to reduce emissions as they pay less and improve the bottom line in their operations.
We are actively working with governments and industry at multiple levels (State/Province, National and International) on new market-based approaches to emission reduction, greening and shortening complex and inefficient supply chains.
In 2016, Freightera wrote the thought leadership statement on the green future of freight for the G7 Summit in Japan, and also presented a summary of how industry can lead the transition to low emission freight transport globally at the UN Climate Change Conference (COP22) in Marrakech, Morocco.
Freightera is also promoting the latest low and zero emission technologies, and investment sources, that speed the transition to cleaner air, more efficient shipping, and sustainability. Please contact us to share technology or systems with our extended freight shipping community.
