what color is your freight?

I’m always looking for different ways to “go green” with our meetings.  Something I hadn’t considered until reading this article by Hunter Slaton of Meetings & Conventions Magazine is that even the method of delivering shipments to your event has an environmental impact.

Luckily, there are a couple of freight companies offering carbon-offset options.  I’ll certainly be looking into this option for our annual meeting this year – one of the freight companies featured in the article is based right here in my hometown!

Carbon-offsetting isn’t the final answer on making freight carriage eco-friendly, of course, but it’s a good step in the right direction.  As planners begin to push for more options, electric or hybrid trucks may begin to carry our freight to our green meetings.
