Comparing CO2 emissions

Here’s an example to see the different impact of road transport and combined road-rail transport on the environment :

Route: a 20 tons truck from Roissy Airport (Paris) to Nîmes (730 km)

Carbon assessment :

100% road transport: 660 Kg of CO2.

Combined road-rail:

  • By road: Roissy – Valenton: 35 Km, equivalent to 31 Kg of CO2 emission.
  • By rail: Valentin – Avignon: 700 Km, equivalent to 52 Kg of CO2 emission
  • By road: Avignon – Nîmes: 46 Km, equivalent to 41 Kg of CO2 emission

For a total emission of 124 Kg of CO2 with combined road-rail transport.

Conclusion : This example shows that piggyback, this alternative mode of transport, pollutes 5 times less than road transport.
