DHL Global Forwarding, Freight now offers its customers a best-in-class tool to gain transparency on the carbon efficiency within their supply chain. In the future, carbon will become a global currency and DHL makes it easy for companies to integrate it in their balance sheet. The new Carbon Dashboard helps our customer identify their impact in detail, so that together we can find 'greener' solutions wherever possible," says Kathrin Brost, vice president, DHL Global Forwarding, Freight Green Strategy.

 

The Carbon Dashboard ensures a standard calculation approach and treats CO2 as an integrated business parameter, putting it into relation with other supply chain parameters such as volumes shipped, product density and trade lane efficiency. It also enables them to dry run various carbon reduction scenarios using real data and explore the effectiveness of different optimisation levers.
