I see on problem already.... corporation/business buy in.

Also, trains are an issue for me. They're not regulated as strictly, at least here and actually are less efficient and produce more particulate matter than a truck with 2007 emission standards. Trains are only useful for long hauls with 25 or less containers since in cities, speeds are reduced drastically and longer than 25 containers requires more than one locomotive.

Also a study by the European Environmental Bureau in 2004 shows that although trucks emit more carbon dioxide than ships per ton per kilometer, ships produce significantly more particulate matter, sulfur dioxide and nitrous oxide.
