In accordance with the Grenelle agreements, logistics companies from 2013 must document your transport CO2 emissions. Munich/Greifenberg, 22 October 2012 promotes not only the new legislation from France a debate of the company with regard to the sustainability. Green Logistics’ is a theme of the specialist media and many conferences for years. Also rising fuel costs are a driver, for a more sustainable use of resources and a reduction of transport-related CO2 emissions help to optimize the falling profits in the field of logistics. So there is no way the capture of CO2 emissions in logistics? Yes, but the effort for a shipping’s CO2 emissions to determine and expel validated not to have. Even if some free CO2 Calculator are already available on the market, it isn’t quite that simple then. The determination of CO2 emissions can contribute to a more sustainable value creation, if not only, default values, but the individual values and consumption of the respective fleet be taken into account.
Only then, a freight forwarder can detect where vulnerabilities exist and solve them. The NADIA AG offers a software-as-a-service application, the browser track and intermodal transport details can be entered with FridLog. For a correct data acquisition, the specific used truck classes and their specific usages are defined in the system. In addition to the freight traffic on the road, intermodal transportation via train, ship or plane can be mapped. In addition, FridLog uses the emission database of NADIA, who emerged from more than 10 years and numerous logistics projects. Two specific values per shipment are the result of the calculation of the CO2 emissions: energy consumption as well as CO2 equivalent of emissions, as required by the standard tank-to-wheel (TWT) and well-to-wheel (WTW). These values are represented in a graphic with the quality seal of the NADIA and description of the methods used for a validated calculation according to DIN 16258 standard. The certificate can customers as PDF be passed digitally or as an expression.
Optional also a connection to the accounting system of the company can be done with FridLog, so that the CO2 emissions of transport directly in the invoice is presented. Logistics companies following the debate ways in a green logistics for a long time. Only, so far, scientifically-based tools, were missing pragmatically and nevertheless properly to capture CO2 emissions,”reported Dr.-ing. Thomas Fleissner, Board strategy of the NADIA AG. The expulsion of a transport’s CO2 emissions will be standard in a few years. We recommend our customers today as a competitive advantage to take advantage of this.” Learn more about the CO2 management in the logistics, costs and implementation proposals of solution FridLog interested parties at, by phone at + 49 8192 99733 20 or via email at contact: NADIA AG Institute for energy, ecology and economy Kreitstr. 5 86926 Greifenberg phone + 49.8192.99733-20 DFGEnergy dfgeblog.WordPress.com
