FourKites just announced several new enhancements to its Sustainability Hub, providing customers a greater ability to track, analyze, and report on the environmental impact of their supply chain logistics operations. Its Sustainability Hub offers granular emissions tracking, industry benchmarks, analytics, and scenario modeling designed to meet sustainability goals.
According to the U.S. EPA, organizations’ supply chains often account for more than 90% of their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Air emissions from freight will exceed growth in emissions from all other transportation activities — including passenger transportation — by 2025.
FourKites’ enhanced capabilities include:
- More granular and accurate Scope 3 emissions calculations. FourKites now incorporates load weight into its emissions calculations for a more accurate estimate of Scope 3 emissions across all modes. This is valuable for less-than-truckload and air shipments, where a shipper’s freight accounts for only a fraction of a vehicle’s total load.
- SmartWay-ready data aggregation. Shippers and carriers will receive comprehensive, export-ready data for their annual reporting of efficiency and air quality performance to the EPA’s SmartWay program. FourKites’ new capabilities relieve customers of significant time and effort in preparing submissions.
- SmartWay carrier sustainability rankings will be integrated into FourKites’ carrier onboarding tools, providing shippers and carriers the critical performance data they need to build a stronger, higher-performing roster of partners.
