CO2 Shipment Track & Trace
Frequently Asked Questions
How is the CO2 emission calculated?
CargoAi uses tracking data and real flight data to determine on which aircraft type the shipment flew. We then calculate the appropriate fuel consumption and CO2 emission, based on the IATA Recommended Practice 1678 for CO2 Emissions Measurement Methodology developed by the IATA Air Cargo Carbon Footprint (ACCF) working group, which establishes a methodology to measure the CO2 emissions generated by air cargo at shipment level. This method has also been endorsed by ICAO and is therefore the global standard to measure air cargo carbon footprint at shipment level; also recognized as the reference methodology for air cargo by the Global Logistics Emissions Council (GLEC) in their framework for logistics emissions calculation methodologies.
What is CO2?
Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a non-flammable, colorless and odorless gas. CO2 emissions result from the combustion of heavy fuel oils as well as diesel oils when operating vessels. The amount of CO2 emissions are directly related to the amount of fuel burned. Therefore, marine fuel consumption is the basis for CO2 calculation. Carbon dioxide is the dominant greenhouse gas worldwide impacting climate change.
