CocoonCarbon is at the heart of our digital ecosystem, absolutely everything we do at CocoonFMS® is about making sure that we protect the environment.
We also realise that the logistics industry unfortunately is a big contributor to emissions that are harmful to the planet. That’s why all our servers are carbon offset and use electricity from wind farms and green eco-friendly sources.
We have also looked at how we can help logistics companies and their clients manage and report on their impact to the environment by developing CocoonCarbon.
We have done an extensive research to find out how to measure and report on carbon emissions. We have gone to the lengths of actually speaking to pilots for 747 freight aircraft to find out how exactly the burn of fuel happens.
As we don’t operate our own vessels, planes or trucks we can’t work out the exact route each shipment takes, also there could be massive differences in weather conditions, speed of vessels, and other factors that can distort or affect a calculation.
Over the last 2 years, we have been enhancing our CocoonCarbon product which we now have very accurate locations of ports, airports, and postcodes. We have every postcode in Europe and USA for trucks and every Airport and port there is in the world down to almost the very center of the port.
As we’re using live data from the logistics companies Transport/Freight Management operation system we can calculate the distance the shipment has traveled as “The Crow” fly’s i.e straight lines and then we can work out the estimated C02 per shipment.
The tool is integrated into the core of our CocoonTMP product it means your clients can run reports or schedule daily, weekly, monthly reports to see what their C02 emissions are by Mode of transport, Port of Loading, and by Carrier. We also neatly display on the dashboard by mode your total C02 Emissions year to date.
Our CocoonCarbon product will shortly be able to be integrated into any website and use our advanced tool.
