Calculate and report your fleet’s emissions

What are the benefits of emissions calculation and reporting?

Pollution Control Policy. What does this mean for the logistics sector? It means that more restrictive transport policies, especially regarding nitrogen and carbon emissions, are on the horizon. Curbing fuel consumption by optimizing vehicle routing and minimizing mileage is, of course, an integral part of reducing your fleet’s carbon footprint. However, we can expect more and more countries to implement mandatory emissions reporting programmes to systematically measure and monitor emissions. By then, the ability to accurately calculate and report all emissions, specifically CO2 and nitrogen, will become a deciding factor in your company’s success.
