Our customers can now calculate the carbon footprint of their cargo using an emissions calculator. Our site offers a link to an EC accredited emissions calculator, which will help you estimate your share of emissions when you use our short-sea intermodal container shipping services.
This information can be helpful in a number of ways - for example in environmental reporting and identification of “carbon hotspots” in the supply chain.
Reducing the emissions caused by the transport of cargo is central to the European Commission’s “Motorways of the Sea” initiative, set out in the Transport White Paper of September 2001. Sea freight is being promoted as a “real competitive alternative to land transport” under the Commission's Marco Polo Programme. This focuses on shifting as much freight as makes economic sense from road to short-sea shipping, rail and inland waterways.
These proposals aim to reduce congestion, enhance intermodal transport and improve
the environmental performance of the transport system.
