Maersk boosts GHG emissions visibility for e-commerce

Maersk boosts GHG emissions visibility for e-commerce

A.P. Moller – Maersk (Maersk) and Berlin-based start-up Cozero have joined forces to develop analytics tools aimed at improving e-commerce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions visibility.

E-commerce deliveries typically have a larger GHG footprint due to their higher supply chain complexity compared to domestic parcels.

Christian Grosse, Maersk E-Delivery Chief Product Officer in Europe said: “Our customers in the international e-commerce industry by design have large gaps in their GHG footprint visibility due to the high number of parties involved in the first, middle and last mile delivery process.”

Grosse added that with Cozero’s technology, Maersk aims to provide its customers with detailed information on the emissions of their international parcels during every stage of their journey.

Maersk has a goal to be a net-zero business by 2040, with ambitious targets for 2030 in all its business segments, including ocean, air and landside logistics.

Starting February 2023, selected Maersk E-Delivery customers in Europe will be able to register for the new tool to trace and analyse the emissions of their international parcels.

The tool will process detailed information on every parcel, including weight, routing, and vehicle used to transport it, using globally recognised standards of the GHG Protocol.

Maersk said accurate emissions data and insights will be presented in a simple and intuitive way, making it easier to identify the main emissions contributors and take necessary actions to reduce them.

Maersk has already tested Cozero’s platform with some customers, and the pilot offering will now be rolled out to more E-commerce clients.

The project is an integral part of Maersk’s strategy of providing end-to-end visibility to its customers and will eventually be integrated into Maersk’s existing Emissions Dashboard.

The Emissions Dashboard is accredited by the Smart Freight Centre (SFC) and has an industry-leading calculation methodology in line with the Global Logistics Emissions Council (GLEC) framework.

Maersk will discontinue shipping lines Hamburg Süd and Sealand as well as newer acquired brands in favour of a singular, unified brand.
