Sebald Get PDF (1 MB)Author: Anthony V. Sebald. This Transport chapter is dedicated to the memory of Leon Jay (Lee) Schipper. A leading scientist in the field of energy research with emphasis on transport, Lee died on 16 August at the age of He was a friend and colleague of many of the Chapter authors who were looking forward to working with him in his appointed role as Review Editor. EFFICIENT USE AND CONSERVATION OF ENERGY – Vol. II - Energy Efficiency in Freight Transportation - Clark W. Gellings, Kelly E. Parmenter ©Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems(EOLSS) Figure 4. Modal share by weight–distance of domestic freight transported, (Canada). Total weight × distance transported = × metric ton-kilometers.

In , rail accounted for % of global passenger transport activity (in passenger-km) and for % of global freight transport activity (in tonne-km). The difference in magnitude of the share of activity and CO2 emissions can be largely explained by the better energy efficiency (per passenger-km and tonne-km) of the rail sector compared to. Table 1: Grain Transport Cost Indicators - Weekly changes in truck, rail, barge, and ocean freight rates using diesel prices, nearby secondary rail market rates, Illinois barge rates, and ocean freight rates from U.S. Gulf and PNW to Japan as proxies. .xlsx file). Energy intensity index: Freight transportation energy intensity was little changed between and Most of the decline after occurred over the period up to From that point forward, overall energy intensity has remained relatively constant. If rail had to haul this lightweight consumer electronics in heavy rail cars, the energy-intensity might be little if any better than hauling it by truck and would be much worse than for the heavy electric motors, etc. that rail actually hauls.

Energy Efficiency and Use: Ships vs Rail vs Truck vs Air. Posted on by energyskeptic. Distance Traveled for One Ton of Cargo Using 1 kWh of Energy. The transportation of freight relies on a variety of modes, each having its own level of energy performance. Energy Consumption by Transportation Mode in the United States, 2 emissions from freight transport operations. General Approaches to Measuring CO 2 Emissions A distinction can be drawn between two approaches: Input-based measures: these are derived from estimates of the fuel / energy purchased by / supplied to companies in particular sectors. These are essentially ‘top-down’ measures. As discussed earlier,File Size: 73KB.   Trucking's share fell from 50% to 48%, while rail's share slipped to 13 rom 14%, despite introduction of new intermodal rail services between Rotterdam and inland points. Willem Scholten, head of Rotterdam Municipal Port Management, cites round-the-clock availability of in-creasingly efficient barge transport as a key asset in. For fatalities, there are 79 trucking deaths and rail deaths for one barge-related death. The rate of spills of more than 1, gallons are very low for barges, at gallons per-million.
