EcoTransIT World: easy online calculation of transport chain environment balance
For the first time, "EcoTransIT World" now also calculates freight transport emissions for worldwide routes
EcoTransIT World produces reliable environment balance worldwide
EcoTransIT World reliably calculates energy consumption together with CO2 and pollution emissions on a worldwide scale for any freight transports by train, truck, airplane, ocean ship and inlandwaterway vessels together with intermodal traffic. The user can enter any number of starting points, destinations and interim stops to visualise various transport combinations and compare their emission values. This makes it easier to decide which transport chain is not only the most economical but also the most ecological for his company. Up to now, the internet tool could only be used to calculate routes within Europe. Now for the first time, the latest version of the tool lets the user draw up his environment balance quickly and easily for routes all over the world. Like its predecessor, the EcoTransIT World tool is freely available on the internet and is based on a scientifically verified method and data.
EcoTransIT World offers many possibilities
Customers can check various environmental aspects of their previous transports not only on certain routes but also compare them with alternative routes. At the same time, they also have a basis for deciding whether to change the transport combination, based on real routes. The user can practically set off from any point in the world and the internet tool finds the next road, next siding, next port or airport, depending on what the user has specified. Shipping companies for example can enter their entire shipping timetables, including preand postcarriage segments. Airlines can visualise all their connections, including stopovers.
Knowing and acting according to the ecobalance of the chosen transport chain
According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), the transport sector is responsible for around a quarter of CO2 emissions worldwide, with an upward trend. Technical innovations alone will not be capable of coping with the expected increase. Effective reductions in carbon emissions require optimised production workflows and comodal solutions. This means finding solutions that make deliberate use of the various strengths of the individual means of transport. EcoTransIT World provides information and transparency about the ecobalance of individual means of transport and transport combinations.
