Damco launches online CO2 calculator

Damco is offering customers a online way to track CO2 emissions for their products that are shipped by ocean and air.

Erling Johns Nielsen, global head of supply chain development, said: “Experience shows that greening your supply chain can reduce logistics cost and emissions from your inbound supply chain by up to 15 per cent. Online visibility of carbon emissions will enable you to take earlier corrective action if operations is not in sync with your carbon reduction and efficiency goals.”

The information is available online at “myDamco,” the browser-based customer interface. A customer can evaluate emissions from a particular shipment, or form an overview of top ten emissions separated by mode of transport, origin and country destination.
