Logistics and transportation sector contributes around 24% of global CO2 emission. The European Environment Agency is expecting global logistics to account for up to 40% of global carbon dioxide emissions by 2050 unless strong and effective actions are taken.

Carbon-free logistics refers to the practice of reducing or eliminating carbon emissions generated by the transportation of goods. There are various initiatives categorized under avoiding carbon emissions, reducing carbon emissions and replacing carbon emission. This is achieved by using low-carbon or carbon-free technologies and practices in the logistics process. These may include use of electric or hybrid vehicles, renewable energy sources, sustainable transportation practices, consolidation of cargo, and electronic document management reducing paper consumption etc.

Logistics actors to reduce carbon emissions

Reducing carbon emissions in logistics requires a collaborative effort from all stakeholders in the supply chain, from suppliers to transportation companies to customers. Other initiatives to reduce carbon emissions from logistics and transportation may include optimizing the utilization of trucks and containers, reducing the number trucks and containers used for shipping and transportation, optimizing delivery routes and consolidating shipments in collaboration with suppliers. The use and doption of new and advanced technologies can help to mitigate environmental impact of transport and logistics activities with reduced carbon emission.

We are committed to a net-zero future

Our digital freight procurement solutions make the freight procurement faster, easier, cost effective and more efficient. These digital solutions help customers to get the rates for moving their shipments as LCL and LTL instead of FCL and FTL for low volume shipments. While we act as a sales channel to the logistics companies generating more business to improve their equipment utilization and reduce number of trucks used, we help shippers and consignees to get more affordable and competitive rates from multiplie suppliers to accelerate their decision making. Through end-to-end electronic doument management, we aim to help reducing the uprooting of millions of trees worldwide every year and thereby reduce CO2 emissions. The goal of carbon-free logistics is to reduce the impact of the logistics industry on the environment and to mitigate the effects of climate change. By reducing emissions from transportation, carbon-free logistics can help to create a more sustainable supply chain, reduce costs, and improve overall efficiency.

To achieve carbon-free logistics, companies need to adopt a comprehensive approach that involves collaboration across the entire supply chain, investment in low-carbon technologies, and continuous improvement in processes and practices. By taking proactive approaches, companies can help to create a more sustainable future and reduce the impact of their operations on the environment.
