Sustainable Refrigerated Road Transport – Investigating the Scale of Carbon Emissions from Direct-Drive Last Mile Refrigerated Vehicles

This paper was authored by, Ted Perry Award winner, Dr Christina Francis. It consists of two parts, Part 1 focuses on evaluating the scale of direct carbon emissions from RRT systems and Part 2, investigates the scale of indirect carbon emissions of RRT vehicles. It also provides a brief overview of the mathematical modelling and experimental methods used to analyse the real-time performance of urban direct-drive refrigerated vehicles. Conclusions are drawn from both parts, which can incorporated, into best practice guidelines for the design and development of sustainable refrigerated road transport systems.
