TIRPORT Contributes to the Prevention of Global Warming by Reducing 55 Thousand Tons of Carbon Emissions Annually

More than 850 thousand trucks are on the roads in Turkey, where 90% of the transportation is done by highways. According to the data of Turkey’s leading digital platform TIRPORT for the first half of 2020, an average of 450 thousand trucks are transported daily in Turkey. A truck averages 282 km per day. making way. A trucker who can transport between 7 and 9 per month spends at least 20 days on the road.

Thanks to its enhanced intelligence-supported technologies, TIRPORT can reduce the situation of trucks on the road to search for loads by up to 35%.

Innovative technologies developed by TIRPORT say “stop” to CO2 emission, which is the main cause of global warming, contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions from trucks on the roads by up to 35%, and fight against global warming.

Reducing The Use Of Technology And CO2 Emission, Protecting The Future

A truck that travels 282 km a day travels at least 8,420 km per month and 101 thousand km per year. 1/3 of this road is going empty to search for cargo. A truck that consumes up to 0.3 L/km of fuel per kilometer travels 282 km per day, burning 282*0.3L= 84.6 L diesel fuel. Since 1 L of diesel fuel emits 2.77kg of CO2, an average truck releases 2.77*84.6L= 234.34 kg of CO2 per day to the nature. In Turkey, where 450,000 trucks and trucks are on the road, the daily CO2 amount released by trucks to the nature is 234.34 kg*450.000 Trucks= 105.453.000 kg CO2 per day.

CO2 emissions are a great threat to the world and humanity. With the smart matching and optimization technologies developed by TIRPORT for the logistics sector, 55 thousand tons of CO2 is prevented from being released into the nature annually by preventing the trucks from going empty on the road at the level of 35%, this rate is increasing day by day and our future is protected. Every month, thousands of new truckers are included in the number of active member truckers of TIRPORT, which reaches 45 thousand.

Truckers Find Return Load, CO2 Emissions Decrease

Underlining that 35% of the trucks on the roads are empty, TTT Global Group Chairman of the Board Dr. Akin Arslan said:

“Thousands of drivers who cannot find a load in the region they go to, have to travel from city to city in search of a load to find a return load, and if they cannot find an urgent load, they have to return empty-handed. Considering that 95% of the 850 thousand trucks on the roads belong to individuals, the economic consequences of this are extremely fragile. While this situation has a negative impact on the truckers’ budget, on the other hand, considering that every empty truck will emit unnecessary CO2, it becomes clear that we need to take additional measures for the future of our world. With the location-based technologies it has developed, TIRPORT allows drivers to see the closest loads to their location and to find a new load from the area where they left the load. Thus, idle movement rates are kept at the lowest level. All companies in the world and all of us should produce and work with the awareness of protecting nature and the belief of leaving a more livable world to future generations.

TIRPORT Protects Nature, Green And The Economy

The amount of CO2 that is prevented from being released by TIRPORT ; TIRPORT contributes to leaving a better world to future generations with its positive impact on many points from preventing air pollution to protecting human health and strengthening the country’s economy. Looking at the examples;

1- Since an adult tree absorbs 114 kg of CO2 emissions annually, TIRPORT creates an effect equivalent to the carbon reduction of a forest consisting of 485,176 trees. This corresponds to twice the number of trees planted in Istanbul in the past 20 years.

2- As you know, the carbon footprint of 1 kg of plastic equals 6 kg of CO2, and 83.3 plastic bottles are produced with 1 kg of plastic. With the amount of CO2 prevented by TIRPORT, 9,208,645 kg of plastic waste can be recycled, which corresponds to 767,356,388 plastic bottles. In short, thanks to TIRPORT, the equivalent CO2 emission resulting from the production of 9,208,645 kg of plastic is prevented and this corresponds to the production of 767,356,388 plastic bottles. It can be considered as a big step towards saving our world from plastic pollution.

3- Considering that a passenger vehicle emits an average of 5,200 kg of CO2 per year, the amount of CO2 and harmful gas emissions prevented by TIRPORT is equivalent to the pollution that 10,625 vehicles will create in traffic. Considering that around 50 thousand people lose their lives due to air pollution every year in Turkey, the importance of this issue can be better understood.
