Freightgate Committed to Climate Action in the Supply Chain

Freightgate has announced a new sustainability bundle covering the End2End process from procurement to execution and includes an enhanced CO Modeling Wizard and recyclable IoT Trackers.

This bundle being offered by Freightgate comes at an ideal time as climate change is poised to receive a much bigger spotlight in 2021 as President-elect Joe Biden‘s incoming administration puts a renewed focus on tackling various environmental and energy issues. With online orders booming and growing exponentially due to the pandemic – last mile and related CO emission attributable to transportation, is likely to have increased since 02/2020.  

Biden has made combating climate change one of his top priorities when he entered office and has set a goal to make the U.S. carbon neutral by 2050 while pushing different ways to reduce emissions. In our recent post, we covered top priorities for the new administration.

According to the International Transport Forum, “roughly 7 percent of global CO2 emissions stem from the transportation of goods, fueled by a growing economy and international trade. Transportation and technology companies around the world are innovating products and services to help mitigate the growth of damage we endure to our planet.”

Freightgate is leading the charge in helping provide key solutions within the supply chain for all shippers to improve their supply chain costs and reduce the impact of the supply chain has on climate change. Here’s how Freightgate is revolutionizing the carbon footprint in supply chain:

Smart Procurement Options

Today there are smart procurement practices allowing companies to consider carbon emissions of their transportation choices.  Assigning values e.g. driven by the cost of carbon offsets; first by transporting their cargo on the most optimized route, another logical step for companies to set targets and report logistics emissions across their global supply chain. 

“Traditional traffic planning, ensuring that road volumes are kept down – many of these things are still sensible, but with increased production capacity for biofuels, we then can look at their use for air and sea transportation,” says Jonas Eliasson – Professor of Transport Systems at Linköping University

Using a product like Freightgate’s rateCloud, a company is able to measure and track emissions from their global supply chain, plus provide insight on smart procurement practices to minimize the emissions and provide the most optimal route for shipments to reduce supply chain costs as well as reduce impact on the environment.

Strategic RFP Process

As Carbon Emissions and sustainability are regaining momentum for global supply chain networks – collecting relevant information during an upcoming RFP is a great starting point. Being able to collect and model based on CO2 impact has become important both on the buying and selling side. Freightgate offers native support for execution level CO modelling as part of the Logistics Cloud platform, positioning our customers with strategic advantages for the future. 

As the freight industry evolves, innovative companies all around the world come up with creative ways to improve the impact on the environment.  Re-engineering the way we transport goods internationally and domestically to advance health, safety and our future.

Recyclable IoT Trackers 

Committed to Sustainability and a better future for all together with our Sister company Tive, Freightgate offers some of the most advanced IoT trackers in the market a natural vertically extension, perfectly augmenting the PO and Shipment VIsibility and Event Management with IoT trackers. But to preserve precious resources we offer a comprehensive recycling program. Especially with the 5G and 2G Solo single-use trackers weighing less than 100g, our customers can now add the best IoT tracking without it weighing on the environmental conscience or noticeably on their shipment.   

Sustainability seems complex, yet it’s simply taking today’s actions and incrementally improving processes to ensure plenty of resources for the future. Many logistics sustainability measures may require significant investment; however, with Freightgate they provide easy to integrate supply chain options to help with a companies sustainable footprint with our built in carbon footprint modeling, rerouting optimization, nearshoring risk mitigation. Together both private and government sectors can do their best at focusing on how we can provide a greener future.
