Ensuring transparency across the supply chain of key logistics milestones from initial order to final delivery point
Modal shift implementation
From truck to barge - calculations from working with one of our customers show that every container going over water instead of land, saves up to 64,71kg CO2 emissions - approx 50% reduction compared to road transport.
Moving goods by rail instead of the road to further reduce emissions
Optimizing daily transport routes analyzing the impact of adapted delivery frequency on the required number of trucks and driven kilometers.
Integration of trailer operations to deliver containers and short sea.
Implementing best practices in transportation to reduce carbon footprint:
Increasing the use of origin consolidation.
Utilizing new/amended routing to reduce the number of miles traveled.
Horizontal collaboration - a way to massive improvements in utilizing transport assets
Driving horizontal collaboration, we work with our customers, in how they can benefit from supply network matchmaking, providing transport overlap analysis, planning shipping scenarios to reduce emissions.
In terms of environmental benefit, this translates into double-digit (20-40%) carbon footprint reductions per freight movement.
By using our collaboration software tools, supported by interactive CO² dashboards, we can typically reduce 15% to 20%, on average, in kilometers driven and further increase route utilization.
Our inhouse developed carbon footprint calculation tool adopts the GLEC framework for emission calculation.
