Shipping News Feature

WORLDWIDE – Swiss headquartered freight forwarding and logistics provider Kuehne + Nagel claims its newly introduced Global Seafreight Carbon Calculator (GSCC) will offer customer precise data regarding the carbon footprint for LCL and full load container movements on any door to door shipment.

The GSCC allows calculations of SOx and NOx as well as CO2 and the underlying methodology of the programme is based on the Clean Cargo Working Group standards for CO2emissions, whereby individual trade lane based CO2 footprint per gram/TEU/km can be obtained.

Built upon the European Standard EN 16258, the GSCC is a planning support tool that helps customers to calculate and model complex supply chains and offers real time CO2 emission details together with an overview of CO2 emissions for sea and intermodal transport and, on request, K+N can also provide customer specific CO2 emission reports with its advanced Global Transport Carbon Calculator.

This tool is designed to monitor carbon emission from transportation activities and the reports include actual ocean carrier emission data provided by individual carriers. The data is fully integrated into the K+N Login platform and allows scalable reports per trade lane, region, country, mode of transport and carrier.
