Written by Heather Clancy, Contributor

Our local UPS driver visits our street a shocking number of times every week, mainly because I am not the only home-based free agent on my block. So it's good to hear that the company is taking new steps to reduce its carbon emissions in the air, too, by using better flow control software pretty much anywhere it can. Its aim is to cut carbon emissions for its airborne fleet by another 20 percent through the year 2020. Read this Fast Company post to find out more details. Chances are you don't have the same transportation network to manage as UPS does, but you DO have choices about which transporation companies to use for your own products and this should be one sort of thing that factors in that decision.
