U.P.S. Guzzles, Just Greener

UPS_POST U.P.S. Guzzles, Just Greener

While we prefer bike messengers—or even carrier pigeons—to couriers that rely on cars and trucks, U.P.S. looks like the lesser of car-powered, package-delivering evils. (Something to keep in mind when shipping gifts during this consumer-driven, holiday season.) A recent article by the New York Times Magazine applauds U.P.S. for taking steps to make the business more eco-friendly, namely by changing delivery routes and eliminating extraneous turns.

The international courier now uses high-tech software to reduce mileage and left-hand turns, which has cut distance traveled by about 28.5 million miles. The changes in delivery routes have saved three million gallons of gas and reduced CO2 emissions by 31,000 metric tons.
 
According to the New York Times:

…When you operate a gigantic fleet of vehicles, tiny improvements in the efficiency of each one will translate to huge savings overall — is what led U.P.S. to limit further the number of left-hand turns its drivers make.

 
Changes made by U.P.S. lead me to wonder when the U.S. Postal Service, FedEx, and other delivery services will catch on. (Think about it: How many times have you witnessed your local mail carrier idle the engine while s/he runs to a mail box, then drives two feet to the next one? And there are millions of them on the roads, six out of seven days a week!) It also raises questions about our reliance on cars, trucks, and fuel in an entirely different arena—that of cargo transport, the origin of the goods we use, and where those products came from. Are we still guilty participants in car-loving culture if we get our greens from faraway farms, buy clothing that’s been flown in from China, but bike to work?

if anyone is interested i suggest reading the CTPP full document here:
http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/ctpp/jtw/

there might be some kind of discrepancy, b/c the CTPP from 2000, does not list portland as having 3.5% bike commuters. That number could be higher than expected if you’re only talking about portland as a city rather than a metro-area…of course it is also possible that portland gained a large # of bikers from 2000-2005…

at any rate, i recommend the ctpp to anyone interested in the state/history of US transport (even if it only goes from 1960-2000)
