-- FreightBazaar and Clean Air Asia have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). FreightBazaar and Clean Air Asia share a common goal to increase transparency in supply-chains and reduce carbon emissions resulting from logistics operations. Both of them recognize the potential for synergies in their shared goal of reducing empty miles from the freight truck and improving air quality. Thousands of trucks run empty every day looking for loads for their return trips. This is a costly, inefficient, as well as a huge source of air pollution. FreightBazaar and Clean Air Asia will jointly help truckers in finding return loads by providing a real time platform to exchange information of available goods and trucks. FreightBazaar will also promote various green initiatives taken by Clean Air Asia. "Trucks, which represents around 5% of national vehicle populations are responsible for almost 60% of transport emissions," says Parthaa Bosu, Director for Clean Air Asia India. "The freight industry has to innovate to remain competitive and develop solutions to improve efficiency for a more sustainable future."
"Every liter of fuel saved not only reduces harmful emissions but also brings cost savings for truck owners and truck users. FreightBazaar removes such bottlenecks through convenient, reliable and transparent online platform for the trucking industry" says Bhaven Shah, Co-Founder & COO, FreightBazaar.com. "We are very happy that FreightBazaar is seen as a part of the sustainability solution to improve efficiency and reduce carbon footprint." "We are proud to be part of Green Freight India initiative to reduce Carbon Footprints", says Ganesh Rewanwar, Co-Founder & CEO, FreightBazaar.com. "This complements with our vision of building sustainable supply chain. It underscores FreightBazaar's credentials as well as adds additional responsibility to build better tomorrow.
