Freight in Brazil: An Assessment and Outlook for Improving Environmental Performance


Publication Year: 2021

Author(s): Araujo Carmen Silvia C

Abstract:

This report is a non-exhaustive, exploratory survey of the truck market in Brazil. We considered the particularities of the road freight transportation system in an effort to evaluate possible obstacles and opportunities for the application of a green freight system similar to the EPA’s SmartWay and other initiatives related to energy efficiency and the reduction of emissions from transport. The authors examined the operational characteristics of freight transportation, recent truck sales and the profile of the truck fleet, and the perceptions of transporters. Given the relevance of road freight transportation in Brazil and the impacts on the economy due to the increase in the price of diesel, there are clear opportunities to advance the theme of green freight.
