A fundamental fact of freight transport and storage is that it requires energy. Energy is required to move freight, to cool perishable goods, to transmit information, to control storage environments, to deliver freight and to do just about any type of value added service related to the freight being moved. As economies grow they need to move more freight and this fact, coupled with the growth rate of the economy, leads to increasing energy demands from the transport and logistics sector. This fundamental physical fact is the primary reason why all projections for energy consumption in the transport sector indicate that energy demand from this sector will increase into the foreseeable future
