Kuehne + Nagel Global Seafreight Carbon Calculator

The GSCC allows a quick calculation of the CO2 emission for container and LCL movements from door to door. Kuehne + Nagel can also provide customer specific emission reports. With few exceptions, these reports include actual emission data reported by individual carriers based on the CCWG methodology.

GSCC Methodology

Kuehne + Nagel as member of the "Clean Cargo Working Group" based the calculation methodology for this tool on the CCWG methodology http://www.bsr.org/en/collaboration/groups/clean-cargo-working-group .
For port to port FCL transportation, the GSCC calculates the CO2 emission per Trade Lane/TEU/Grams based on the aggregate data reported by CCWG carrier participants in 2012 (http://www.bsr.org/reports/BSR_CCWG_TradeLaneEmissionsFactorsReport.pdf ).

For port to port LCL transportation, CO2 emissions factors in Grams/M3/Km are used based on the CCWG's fleet-wide performance average (variable dependending on used trade lane) reported in 2012 divided by a load factor of 22.5 M3 per TEU.

For pre-and on carriage all emissions for CO2 are calculated according to the EcoTransIT World method (http://www.ecotransit.org/basis.en.html ).
