Climate change and the freight transportation industry are very much intertwined. The freight industry generates eight to ten percent of the world’s carbon emissions, making it one of the biggest carbon polluters on Earth. In turn, climate impacts create secondary effects from infrastructure damage all the way down to micro-scale problems like surety bond claims. 

It’s critical that logistics professionals understand this cycle, as well as the steps to breaking it. By seeing the complex and interconnected ways in which freight transportation and climate change interact, we can analyze ways to stop the process before it’s too late.
