Modifying Transportation Defaults

The Transportation section of the Sustainability Task Pane lets you identify shipping methods and distances.

Default shipping distances are based on the Use Region selected.

The units are given in kilometers or miles, depending on whether the units for the part's weight are metric.

  1. Click a Transportation mode button and type new values in the field that is enabled.

    You can edit any or all of the following:

    tool_sustainability_train.gif Train
    tool_sustainability_truck.gif Truck
    tool_sustainability_boat.gif Boat
    tool_sustainability_plane.gif Plane

    Changing a value highlights the field in yellow and enables the Reset to Defaults button.

  2. Click Reset to Defaults if you want to return to the default transportation settings for the current Use region.
