Title
Road cargo transport baselines 2018 US
Content
These baselines are based on data available in NTM<em>Calc 4.0, </em>literature reviews and expert interviews<em>. </em>The settings aim to reflect on general road transport. In general we recommend use of real data if available at sufficient quality. NTM default data are conservatively assessed and should if used thereby not enable low emission calculations. Furthermore they should promote transport suppliers to present their real data in relation to NTM default data, hence being used in the transport service procurement process. <img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-2607" src="https://www.transportmeasures.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/US-Trucks-2018.png" alt="" width="1335" height="590" /> <h2>Road transport settings 2018</h2> These data is based on similar setting as for EU adjusted for other fuel quality, different emission standards, specific road conditions, cargo loads, speed and topography. <h2><strong>Clarifications and abbreviations</strong></h2> <strong>* Traffic data</strong> Performance in relation to vehicle operation expressed as emissions or energy use per vehicle * km. Useful if transport service is carried out by a dedicated truck. <strong>** Transport data</strong> Performance in relation to vehicle operation expressed as emissions or energy use per ton * km. Useful if transport operation is carried out as a shared truck service. Default load factor [%-weight] includes empty positioning of truck. <strong>Type of vehicle</strong> Describes type and their gross weight <strong>Load factor weight</strong> Refers to actual pay weight <strong>Detafult data</strong> Based on general settings within NTMCalc 4.0. <strong>Energy</strong> Use of energy, including fuel production/ distribution and the combustion (wtw). <strong>CO2e</strong> Emissions of carbon dioxide equivalents including fuel production, distribution and the combustion (wtw). <strong>Road type</strong> Describing the type of road and corresponding traffic situation for the trucks. <strong>Engine emission standard</strong> Describing the emission standard of the vehicle used for these default values. <strong>Fuels quality</strong> Describing the diesel quality and ratio of biomass blend (5%) <strong>Road gradient</strong> Describe road topography as this has an influence on fuel consumption <strong>Sources</strong> NTMCalc 4.0; <a href="https://www.transportmeasures.org/">www.transportmeasures.org</a> Handbook for emission factors <a href="http://www.hbefa.net/">www.hbefa.net</a> REAL-WORLD, FUEL CONSUMPTION OF HEAVY-DUTY VEHICLES IN THE UNITED STATES, CHINA, AND THE EUROPEAN UNION, <a href="http://www.theicct.org/">www.theicct.org</a> <h3></h3>
