Here’s how we offer our carbon neutral shared truckload service: FlockDirect

01

Shared truckload shipments pick up and deliver along efficient routes, reducing greenhouse gas emissions for LTL freight by up to 40%.

02

Because shared truckload shipments only load and unload once, they don’t waste energy on forklifts or other trans-loading equipment.

03

Removing the need for carbon-intensive LTL hubs means there’s more space for planet-friendly amenities, like parks.

04

Shared truckload shipments incur significantly less damage than LTL freight, reducing the environmental risks of remanufacturing and reshipping broken goods.

05

We erase the remaining impact of FlockDirect shipments by supporting Carbonfund.org carbon offset projects. When shippers book FlockDirect at point of sale, we buy carbon credits to offset that shipment’s remaining fuel emissions — at no extra cost to the customer. 

06

In 2021, our goal is to reduce carbon emissions from the trucking industry by 20,000 metric tons of CO2e through FlockDirect.

In 2020, Flock Freight's shared truckloads eliminated fuel emissions equivalent to:

464412
saving almost 500 thousand gallons of fuel
892
taking almost 900 cars off the road for a year
476
powering almost 500 homes for a year
