Intermodal Freight’s Vital Challenge to Cut Emission

It is expected that Australia’s freight task in 2020 will be double what it was in 2006 and by 2050 it will be triple its current size. Meeting future demand while increasing economic efficiency and safeguarding the environment of freight movements presents an unprecedented challenge.

The freight sector is crucial to the functioning of our society, with vital responsibilities such as delivering coal to our power plants, carrying raw materials to our factories or bringing food and consumer goods to our homes. But providing such accessibility comes at an environmental price we cannot afford.

“Carbon emissions from transport in Australia total 14 per cent of total national emissions. Over the period 1990 to 2006, while overall transport emissions grew by 27.4 per cent, emissions from freight grew by 40 per cent. Freight transport emissions now contribute around four per cent of our national emissions total and are forecast to more than treble to 13.5 per cent by 2020.”
