TECHNOLOGY & BEHAVIOUR

FUTURE TRACTION

Using diesel-powered locomotives to move freight by rail generates up to 76% lower carbon emissions than road transport. Switching to electric traction boosts the benefits even further, cutting carbon emissions by up to 95% compared with road haulage and further reducing air pollution.

Freightliner is researching, engaging and collaborating on what the future locomotive traction could be as part of our pathway to net zero.
