Sustainable transport – A case study for sustainable development in transport (English)
Abstract [sv]

Klimatfrågan blir allt viktigare i dagens samhälle. Halten av koldioxid har ökat i atmosfären och är nu det högsta på 800 000 år. Ökningen beror på den mänskliga faktorn samt den ökade förbrukningen av fossila bränslen de senaste 70 åren. Med detta i beaktande har uppdragsgivaren till examensarbetet efterfrågat hur användning av historisk data kan ligga till grund för miljömässiga beslut.   Den här fallstudien avser att beräkna koldioxidutsläpp från lastbilstransporter med hjälp av beräkningsverktyget NTM. Koldioxidutsläpp har beräknats mellan distributionslager i Jönköping till terminal i Sundsvall samt leveranser från terminal ut till kund, the last mile.  Studien bygger på en empirisk fallstudie där kunskapen grundas på verkliga observationer från historisk data som ligger till grund för beräkningarna. Informationsinsamling sker genom mixed-method, vilken kombinerar kvalitativa och kvantitativa studier.   I resultatet beräknas koldioxidutsläpp på direkttransporter och mjölkrundor. Resultatet påvisar att mjölkrundor är mer effektivt jämfört med direkttransporter med avseende på miljön. Vidare har ett samband tagits fram för att ta reda på vad respektive sändnings har för koldioxidbidrag i den avsedda rutten. Detta genereras ett approximativt värde som kan tillämpas av uppdragsgivaren.

Abstract [en]

Climate issues are becoming increasingly important in today's society. The carbon dioxide content has increased in the atmosphere and is now the highest in 800 000 years. The increase is due to the human factor and the escalation of fossil fuel consumption in the last 70 years. With this in mind this bachelor’s thesis has been requested by the employer to use historical data which can be the reason for environmental decision taking in the future.   This case study aims to calculate carbon dioxide emissions from truck transport using the NTMcalc. Carbon dioxide emissions have been calculated from the distribution warehouse in Jönköping to the terminal in Sundsvall and deliveries from the terminal to the customer, in other words the last mile. The study is based on an empirical case study where knowledge is based on real observations from historical data as the foundation for the calculations. For research of information the method mixed-methods have been applied. This method combines qualitative and quantitative studies.   In the result, emissions are calculated on direct transport and milk runs. The result demonstrates that milk runs are more efficient compared to direct transport regarding to the environment. Furthermore, a correlation has been developed to find out the contribution for each transmission in the intended route. This is generated by an approximate value that can be applied by the employer in the future.
