Climate change is real

Climate change is real

The annual air temperature has warmed 1.5 degrees in the past six decades. 2010 to 2019 was the hottest decade in 140 years.

The past decade was punctuated by a series of deadly, dramatic, devastating events— Hurricanes like Sandy, Maria, and Harvey.

Towards the end of 2019, Australia was engulfed by raging forest fires, a period which is now known as Black Summer for the country.

In early 2020, swarms of deadly desert locusts, accelerated by climate change, entered Uganda after ravaging parts of Kenya and causing food shortages.

Carbon dioxide forms carbonic acid when it dissolves in water and has caused a 34% increase in ocean acidity.

Both ocean-trapped heat and melting ice are contributing to record-breaking sea levels across much of the planet.

Supply chains and corporates contribute majorly to carbon emissions and global warming

Transportation is the largest source of carbon emissions in the United States, contributing 28.2 percent of greenhouse gases.

Over 90 percent of the fuel used for transportation is petroleum-based, which includes primarily gasoline and diesel.

The transportation sector — comprising traffic from cars, trucks, planes, trains, and boats— emits 1.9 billion tons of CO2 annually.

More than three-quarters of the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with many industry sectors come from their supply chains.

The e-commerce industry requires fewer paper resources but relies heavily on a transportation system that is highly energy and pollution-intensive.

Online shopping also leads to unmanageable piling up of corrugated cardboard boxes, plastic bags, and other packaging waste in landfills.

Network Design Planning

Focuses on optimizing physical flow of goods from one location to another, accurate placement of supply chain nodes, warehouses, and distribution hubs.

Route Optimization

Plans daily dispatches and delivery routes taking into account real-world constraints, resulting in faster deliveries, lesser miles driven, and fuel cost savings.

Supply Chain Visibility

Mitigates fuel wastage during idle hours or in traffic, and accommodates dynamic orders or returns, resulting in fewer empty miles, often called “deadhead” miles.

Fleet Capacity Utilization

Proposes ideal-sized fleet for delivery/distribution operations as well as the number of vehicles required on the ground to ensure that all vehicles are adequately utilized.
