Road transport is responsible for 18% of the UK's carbon dioxide emissions. At the forefront of environmental thinking within the road freight industry is Exel Logistics. But even Exel, with a self-imposed fuel efficiency target, expects to see its fuel consumption rise by 5-10% per year. Reductions in the sector's CO2 emissions will depend on changes in the market framework within which it operates.
