Hudson's Green Focus
Transportation accounts for a massive percentage of the greenhouse gasses which are emitted into Earth’s atmosphere every year. Trains, ships, and trucks all rely mostly on fossil fuels to transport goods both intra and internationally. Few companies are in a position to create a comprehensive plan to reduce emissions across all methods of transportation. Hudson is one of those companies.
As a leading global supply chain manager, Hudson utilizes all methods of transportation to accommodate its clients’ needs. This puts Hudson in a unique position to assess how the movement of goods can be economized with an eye towards reducing emissions as well as costs. By having a diverse portfolio of transportation assets, Hudson can not only look at which route is most efficient, but at which method of transportation reaps the biggest environmental and financial dividends. Once the method is identified, Hudson has rapid access to whichever instrumentality is best for the customer and the Earth.
Whichever method is chosen, the customer can rest assured that Hudson is operating it efficiently and with environmental sensitivity. Hudson employs the newest ships and keeps them maintained to the highest standards. These vessels are up to 30% more efficient than their predecessors, and their capabilities are maximized by careful upkeep and operation. Rail is the most efficient way to move large quantities by land, and Hudson makes extensive use of rail assets to minimize costs and emissions. Routes are chosen with an eye towards speed and economy, and Hudson uses only first class operators to ensure no corners are cut. 70% of all freight is moved by trucks, and Hudson customizes routes, equipment and personnel to economize transport and reduce waste. Hudson utilizes members of EPA’s Smartway or international equivalents to ensure maximum efficiency.
Hudson knows and understands that being green does not mean increasing costs. By employing a comprehensive approach to managing its environmental footprint, Hudson reduces the burden transportation places on the environment while at the same time reducing costs for our customers. The utilization of state of the art technologies and methods is a hallmark of Hudson’s operations, and produces a win-win scenario for our clients and our planet.
