Over 67% (226) of respondents indicated a variety of reduction activities, with 60% (667) realizing a payback period for increased energy and operational efficiency to be three years or less (see Figure 8). Most respondents report multiple projects in each category which resulted in over 1,000 total projects disclosed. The colors of the bars in the figure portray the percentage of projects reported that fall into each payback category.


“UPS uses more than 95,000 ground vehicles, more than 200 aircraft, and the services of many other transportation companies. Therefore, reducing fuel and energy consumption and implementing low carbon fuels is a business imperative. In 2010, routing technology provided savings of 63.5 million miles or 6.3 million gallons of fuel. The initiative applies to the U.S. Package Delivery Vehicles and reduces Scope 1 emissions (fuel). Idle time reduction saved 103,000 gallons of fuel.” UPS
