Will it be necessary to slow down the movement of freight in a low carbon world?

New journal paper discussing case for decelerating freight transport - free download till 31 Aug 2016

Slowing down the movement of freight would involve reversing one of the most enduring trends in human history and be regarded as heresy by many logistics managers. But the deceleration of transport can significantly reduce energy consumption and related CO2 emissions. So it should at least be considered as a decarbonisation option. It could also be done in ways that would not adversely affect customer service, inventory levels or sales. All this is discussed in a new journal paper I’ve just published in Transport Reviews.
