Freightgate Logistics Cloud Supports Improved Carbon-Emission Modeling and Supply Chain Execution
(PR Web Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Huntington Beach, California (PRWEB) October 30, 2013
Freightgate, a global provider of Logistics Cloud Solutions, has successfully deployed improved carbon emission modeling in its Logistics Cloud. The Logistics Cloud, known as the Freightgate Universe, contains carbon footprint functionality that will help shippers and carriers capture, analyze and optimize the carbon footprint of their logistics and supply chains.
Earlier this week California, Oregon and Washington signed a Climate Pact with British Columbia to formally align climate and clean energy policies. They agreed to put a price on emissions and adopt fuel standards, bringing their efforts to cut greenhouse-gas pollution. The four jurisdictions together represent the world's fifth largest economy. The Climate Pact will have a substantial impact on local and global supply chains.
Using the Freightgate’s Supply Chain Carbon-Emission Modeling, a company will be able to generate different rate and routing scenarios that compare operational, financial and environmental impact of their supply chain in real-time. The results will help determine which scenario is environmentally sound while at the same time being financially and operationally viable. The carbon footprint tracing feature offers customers transparency on the environmental impact of their logistics movements.
"We want companies to be able look at their logistics from the carbon perspective, so we are providing them with the tools to do in-house analysis on their carbon emissions. Understanding the carbon emission impact of your supply chain decisions and carrier routing alternatives is critical to conducting world trade. Freightgate's technology provides real-time, execution level calculation of carbon emission across modes and routing alternatives, including accounting for these upcoming fees along the entire Logistics Management Lifecycle" states Martin Hubert, Freightgate CEO and President.
Freightgate offers a wide range of green services, supply chain efficiency visualization and simulation tools as well as customer specific optimization projects. Freightgate constantly dialogues with its global partners to deliver the most advanced environmentally responsive solutions to support your sustainability initiatives.
