Explore Sustainability

From carbon neutrality goals to Science Based Targets, sustainable corporate action is on the rise. With increasingly transparent value chains and greener investor expectations, we have seen an explosion of public-facing sustainable goals and initiatives. The world’s leading companies have begun to prioritize sustainability across their entire operations. Most recently, this environmental scrutiny has turned to supply chains and reducing Scope 3 transportation-related greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.  Investors, stakeholders, employees, and consumers alike are pushing for more transparency and subsequently, more extensive emissions reporting. 

APL Logistics is here to help. As your logistics provider, we can use your existing shipping and transportation data to deliver Scope 3, Category 9 GHG emission measurement services. From there, we can tap into our collection of emission management techniques to help you reach your emission reduction goals.

At APL Logistics, we bring supply chains to life. Join us in creating sustainable solutions today.

APL Logistics delivers detailed emissions calculations that comply with the GHG Protocol and the Global Logistics Emissions Council framework. Every step of the transportation supply chain is covered from factory to final destination. 

By combining GHG data management services with decades of boots-on-the-ground operational expertise, APL Logistics quickly moves from measuring emissions to implementing reduction strategies. 

We have decades of supply chain transportation experience.  Let us work with you to deliver sustainability solutions that are good for business and the planet.

Carrier-specific GHG measurements are available for ocean freight and 30 of the top airlines.

Did you know many shipments that are scheduled for air travel can actually move by ocean freight?

Shifting from air to ocean can slash customer’s GHG emissions and supply chain costs. Check out APL Logistics’ OceanGuaranteed service to learn more about this capability.

Mitigate GHG emissions

As the saying goes, measuring is essential to managing a supply chain.

APL Logistics has the ability to measure and illustrate your GHG emissions when provided with adequate transportation supply chain data. Plainly speaking, we can calculate the transportation emissions from a single t-shirt’s journey through your supply chain. Scope 3 emissions are the most difficult for companies to both measure and report. APL Logistics is here to ease this process and provide you with the necessary GHG emission statistics. Through the powerful reporting capabilities of our new LSS+ Platform, we can provide you with a detailed supply chain emissions portfolio and start to explore emission reduction programs.
