This is the fourth issue of TransportEnergy BestPractice's six-monthly newsletter, Freight future.
It is published for the freight industry and sponsored by the Department for Transport.


It gives you up-to-date information and advice, based on current industry best practice, to help you reduce fuel consumption, improve operational efficiency and so increase profits.
Topics included in this issue are:
How Focus (DIY) Ltd have increased their efficiency and saved money through the use of moving deck double-deck trailers
How Jaguar achieved cost savings through supply chain streamlining
Details of possible in-service savings through the use of energy efficient tyres
The Road Haulage Modernisation Fund projects are also showcased in this issue. With only six months left for the Fund in England, see pages three and four to find out how you can benefit from the wealth of help available.
Whatever the size, or nature, of your haulage operation we hope you'll find something of interest and value in this issue.
