Kuehne + Nagel introduces Global Seafreight Carbon Calculator

Kuehne + Nagel is continuously enhancing its CO2 emission calculating capabilities and is the first to offer its customers exact data instead of estimations. The Global Seafreight Carbon Calculator (GSCC) allows calculations of CO2, SOx and NOx emissions for container and LCL movements from door-to-door and is available on Kuehne + Nagel’s webpage.

Built upon the European Standard EN 16258, the GSCC is a planning support tool that helps customers to calculate and model complex supply chains. The underlying methodology of the programme is based on the Clean Cargo Working Group standards for CO2 emissions, whereby individual trade lane based CO2 footprint per gram/TEU/km can be obtained. Additionally the GSCC features detailed information about SOx.

The GSCC provides:

- Real time CO2 emissions

- Calculation model for strategic carbon footprint simulation

- High level overview of CO2 emissions for sea and
   intermodal transport

Carrier Based CO2 Emissions Report
On request, Kuehne + Nagel can also provide customer specific CO2 emission reports with its advanced Global Transport Carbon Calculator. This tool is designed to monitor carbon emission from transportation activities and the reports include actual ocean carrier emission data provided by individual carriers. The data is fully integrated into the KN Login platform and allows scalable reports per trade lane, region, country, mode of transport and carrier.
