deugro has expanded its supply chain management system deugro visiotrack with a new feature to measure the carbon footprint of global transports
.“As part of deugro’s commitment to providing innovative logistics solutions for our clients to support global CO2 reduction, and in line with our social responsibility for a net-zero future, the newest feature of the deugro visiotrack tool is another important step towards achieving environmental sustainability,” said Mario Hess, Global Head of Customer Solutions – deugro visiotrack, deugro.
Based on a transparent and compliant calculation methodology, the overall CO2 impact of a trade lane can be easily displayed through a widget within the dashboard of deugro visiotrack. This enables users to record, report and potentially identify CO2 reduction targets and to optimize routings.
In this way, alternative solutions for carbon reduction can be calculated during the transport planning phase based on the identification of intelligent routes and modes of transportation, the optimal utilization of transportation mode capacities, and the forward-looking design of transport schedules.
Furthermore, the feature enables users to increase the transparency of their shipments to meet the increased demands of markets, governments and consumers regarding environmental impacts.
