Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning
The biggest energy expenditure for a Warehouse is often from the need to heat or cool a warehouse, depending on the external weather and internal operation.
This also presents the biggest opportunity for Transport and Logistics operators to reduce their energy expenses and emissions. Whether by better insulating the building, or installing a central a/c unit with a flexible control system there are a number of opportunities that can help contribute to reducing your greenhouse gas emissions.
