The logistics necessary to fuel the global supply chain is an extremely complicated mechanism but it allows for the sending of goods worldwide easier and cheaper than ever before. Global freight transport is also one of the world’s largest sources of greenhouse gas emissions.
The impact of global trade on carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions can no longer be ignored. With sustainability recognized as a key pillar for any business, it’s important that companies understand how they can take steps to be more considerate of the effect that their actions have on the environment.
Greener logistics looks to minimize damage to the environment through transportation and supply chains. Better route planning, for example, can deliver significant efficiency gains for companies through reduced fuel costs, while contributing at the same time to emission reduction. Data related to the CO2 footprint of shipping routes is nowadays just as relevant as the price of transport as it influences the choices of manufacturers and traders.
In this episode we discuss how optimizing supply chains can have a significant impact on reducing CO2 emissions from international trade-related freight transport.
