TRANSPORT: How can logistics help cut costs and carbon? Jonathan Riley, partner, Pinsent Masons (chair) Gordon Telling, policy director, Sustainable Freight Solutions Morag White, director, Environment4logistics Jerome Saint-Marc, development director in logistics, Morrisons
Saving costs and reducing carbon through Green logistics Gordon Telling Policy Director Sustainable Freight Solutions
What is Sustainable Freight Solutions Specialist guidance on: Cyclist Safety Out-of hours deliveries Freight Quality Partnerships Air Quality management
Where does Carbon come from? 1 litre of Diesel produces 2.65 kg Carbon Dioxide Typical fuel consumption 8-10 mpg 1.3kg per mile Euro Standards – focussed on noxious emissions HGVs are largest single emitters Grammes per tonne/km are lowest with HGV
So how can we reduce Carbon? Fewer miles Greener miles Fuels Vehicles Operations
How can we change Operations? Shift delivery times Consolidate deliveries Encourage other modes of public transport
Shifting delivery times Road network is very congested between 07:00 and 09:00 and from 16:00 to 18:00 Most customers want their deliveries Out-of-hours / QDDS Wandsworth trial 25,000l saving 65 tonnes CO2!
Can green logistics cut costs and carbon? Morag White Director E4L
Context CONTEXT Source: McKinnon and Piecyk, 2009 Total amount of freight movement stable at 2007 level Road share of freight tonne-kms reduced from 64% to 50% % of truck kms run empty reduced from 27% to 17% Average weight based load factor up from 59% to 70% 40% improvement in energy efficiency 30% reduction in the carbon content of the energy 80% reduction in CO2 emissions relative to 1990
Challenges spend to accumulate people power industry paradigms
Cultural paradigms CULTURE
Reducing carbon can reduce cost SUMMARY BUT…. Spend to accumulate – you can’t do this properly without spending something A clear strategy is vital and realistic KPI’s important for measuring ROI Board direction is needed but grass roots involvement cannot be ignored as the enabler to successful implementation The biggest rewards will only be achieved by challenging the norm and doing something completely different The businesses that are brave enough to challenge the norm and do so successfully will be those the rest of the industry will be following
Food for thought FINAL THOUGHTS If we do nothing we wont achieve the high targets set. More legislation & red tape? Competitors? The industry is watching the larger players however smaller supply chains and SME’s have more flexibility?
Morrisons Carbon Approach to Logistics Jerome Saint-Marc Development Director

Over the last 5 years we have invested heavily in refreshing our infrastructure, both warehousing and transport and delivering the following: -Reduced road miles by 12.5m from opening Sittingbourne, saving 49,740 tonnes of CO2 over last 4 years -Our new DC in Bridgwater is one of the most energy efficient DC in Europe (Breeam Excellent) and contributed to saving a further 1.3m miles and 1.7m tonnes of CO2 Green Logistics
Green Logistics cont…./ Double Deckers -Introduced 105 double decks with 80% more volume per trip. -By end of 2012 we’ll have saved 15.3 million kilometres, 20,411 tones CO2 in two years. Outstanding results mean we’ve decided to design all new stores over 15,000 square feet to accommodate double deck trailers..
Green Logistics cont…/ We Maintain our own transport fleet in house and are focusing on several programmes: New oil – we’ll save a total of 4,327 tonnes CO2 by end of 2012 New tyres – we’ll save 3,154 tonnes CO2 in three years. New electric fridge points – we’ll save 5,916 tonnes CO2 in two years. New air tabs- saving 1,127 tonnes CO2. InMotion Backhaul delivery service for suppliers. We’ll save 19.9 million kilometres in two years.
Next Steps Continuously drive improvement in reducing our Carbon emission Work with our communities to provide better service to our customers Assess and trial new development in assets, fuels and technology
