Logistics technology company Logward is launching a software for route planning and procurement, in order to calculate expected carbon emissions.
his tool enables shippers to compare estimated emissions for route and transport mode options at the planning stage, while it also enables the measurement of aggregated data for the entire organization retroactively.
In addition, the tool considers route, mode, vehicle and fuel type, and relies on “emission factors,” which are trade lane specific CO2 estimates based on verified carrier reports to the Clean Cargo Working Group.
At the individual shipment level, CO2 Calculation can consider door-to-door, port-to-port, or any combination. Based on the shipment details, the mode of transport and vehicles also configure into the breakout for pre, main, and on carriage segments of the shipment. Finally, the carbon footprint will increase or decrease accordingly with the weight.
Furthermore, operators will be able to see the carbon footprint at the individual level, as well as at an aggregated organizational level.
In the CO2 Dashboard, shippers get an overview of their shipments and corresponding carbon footprint with the ability to drill down based on several filters including time, carrier, forwarder, geography, and more. This permits shippers to take their CO2 considerations and turn them into strategy decisions
