In 2018, Green Freight Asia looked into how to solve the barriers in adopting green freight technologies. With this, our speakers shared industry best practices, introduced green freight-related policy developments and provided an overview of various government financial supports for companies that want to invest in green technologies to reduce carbon emissions.
However in Asia, trucks used for goods delivery constitute only 9% of the total vehicle population but emit 54% of road transport emissions. Air pollution from transport could then be significantly reduced by addressing freight trucks rather than passenger cars, and one sustainable approach is the use of electric vehicles.
Hence this year’s Green Freight Asia’s forum intends to showcase the e-vehicles implementation in freight transport by selected companies considering the landscape constraints in Asia. Our topics will focus on providing information and insights on:
1. Trends, challenges and probable solutions for electric vehicles
2. Case studies on last-mile deliveries using e-vehicles
3. Financing options for electric vehicles
There will also be an exhibition of green technologies showcasing innovations that could help address pain points in greening the supply chain.
