Uber Freight is now offering a new Emissions Dashboard that it says can give shippers comprehensive insight into their network’s emissions across all modes quantified using the Global Logistics Emissions Council (GLEC) framework.
Uber Freight said the Emissions Dashboard equips its customers with a holistic view of their operations. Accessible in both the Uber Freight TMS and as a standalone tool, shippers can monitor total emissions across the entirety of their logistics network, accounting for all modes of transportation across the globe — road to sea to sky. Customers can also port over freight managed outside of the Uber Freight network to ensure all transportation is accounted for within a single view.
Tracking Carbon Emissions
The dashboard also tracks carbon intensity performance, which represents the amount of carbon emissions released per metric tonne per kilometer traveled. It provides customers with a reflection of their mode distribution, the company said. Each mode of transportation has an emissions factor assigned to it based on the general efficiency of the mode.
By providing increased visibility into this ecosystem, shippers can identify and begin addressing carbon hotspots in their network. Uber Freight can also work directly with them to help strategize a roadmap for decarbonization, with a portfolio of tools including mode electrification, network optimization, intermodal optimization, specialized consulting projects, and more.
Actionable Emissions Insights
The new Emissions Dashboard builds on Uber Freight’s commitment to help decarbonize supply chains. Uber Freight said providing companies with all relevant emissions data in one intuitive tool empowers them with actionable insights that elevate sustainability into key decision-making frameworks.
The dashboard also simplifies the ability to identify and implement more sustainable practices and capacity options to optimize their network, electrify lanes, and transition to more efficient modes of transportation.
