CO2 calculation is crucial if your company wants to contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions by 50% by the year 2030. However, at this stage it is unlikely that a calculation of CO2 emissions features prominently on the daily to-do list of planners. With TLNplanner, you can quickly see if your trucks are using the most efficient and environmentally conscious routes.
More and more companies want to know about the extent of the CO2 emissions caused by their transportation. There are also statutory restrictions. France is the first European country to have introduced a legal requirement for CO2 declarations on transport to and from the country, with effect from 2013.
With TLNplanner's emissions calculator, you can already deal with the demand for 'green logistics' during your route calculations. TLNplanner calculates all relevant emissions for the route, depending on the vehicle, weight and incline.
These emissions can be compensated directly from the route planner, through the non-profit organisation Myclimate. You can therefore offer your customers green logistics, secure major competitive advantages and be prepared for future legislation.
With TLNplanner you can draw up detailed emission reports for all your journeys. These reports provide an overview of all the different emissions. At a glance, you can see which vehicles and which journeys make the largest contribution to your CO2 emissions.
TLNplanner offers more options. Would you like to know if a different route with fewer elevation differences may result in less emissions? Are you curious about what results can be achieved if you used a different truck with a different vehicle profile? TLNplanner will quickly give you the answer.
Overview of emissions
While the government and society at large are mainly looking at CO2 emissions, trucks in fact emit many other harmful substances. TLNplanner shows all the different emissions:
- Carbon dioxide (CO2)
- Nitrous Oxide (N2O)
- Methane (CH4)
- Sulphur dioxide (SO2)
- Nitrogen oxides (NO2)
- Ammonia (NH3)
- Carbon monoxide (CO)
