Evaluating Transport Logistics Ecologically

Reduce emissions with LOCOM

Calculate emissions using software tools (Logistics Designer, XCargo) combined with transport simulation.

Starting Point

  • Shipping data for the period under review
  • Transport and routing information

Objectives

  • Identify and calculate greenhouse gas emissions caused by transports involving all carrier types (road, rail, air, sea, inland navigation)
  • Pinpoint reduction potentials

Method

Calculate emissions using software tools (Logistics Designer, XCargo) combined with transport simulation. The degree of detail provided by your input information will determine the calculation logic applied.
