Did the rankings incorrectly reward airlines for carrying belly freight when putting that cargo on a dedicated freighter would have saved more fuel overall? The numbers show that, since increasing payload to aircraft’s structural maximum increases the fuel efficiency of each flight, belly freight is indeed one weird trick for improving airline efficiency.

Is there an e-Autobahn in our future?

How will the heavy duty vehicle sector achieve decarbonization in the long term? Perhaps a new technology being developed by Siemens will be part of the answer.
