Understanding CO2 per shipment through carbon footprinting is becoming more common in the sector. The Top Sector Logistics helps the sector to reduce emissions and increase logistics efficiency. A demo of the following topics is given based on practical cases:

  1. Are my emissions per shipment good compared to similar fellow companies? Check it with the Transport Performance Database.
  2. What causes high CO2 per shipment? Detailed insight into utilization of scarce time and capacity makes the causes clear.
