Decarbonising Road Freight Transport with Shell Lubricants

Overview

Shell’s ambition is to be a net-zero emissions energy business by 2050, or sooner, and to partner closely with our customers in key industries as they seek to decarbonise.

One good example is the road freight industry, which plays a key role in the global economy but is also the highest emitting sector, responsible for about 8% of global CO2 emissions*.

Therefore, innovative concepts are needed to help decarbonise road freight transport without compromising the effectiveness of the e-commerce delivery chain.

*IEA Tracking Transport 2019, IEA Energy Technology Perspectives 2017, IEA Future of Trucks 

Objective

The challenge for students is to develop an innovative concept that helps to decarbonise road freight transport without compromising customer expectations of the timely distribution and delivery of products.

The solution could be focused on any area along the product delivery chain – from shipping on the factory floor to the doorstep delivery at customers’ homes or businesses.
