Samskip unveils multimodal carbon calculator

Samskip has produced an online CO2 carbon footprint calculator designed to visualize the benefits when using multimodal transport versus road transport.

The app is based on the CE Delft “STREAM International” study, which uses recognise CO2 calculation methods. This study contains an overview of vehicle-specific emissions in several market segments in the international freight transport; measured by tonne per kilometre.

The calculator analyses the environmental impact of multimodal transport (a combination of short sea, rail, inland waterways and road) compared to conventional road transport. In considering every step from pick-up to delivery, including Samskip’s complete European network (from Iceland to the Baltic Sea and Turkey), routing and mode of transport.
