Explore Sustainability

85% of the world’s top 500 companies are not expected to meet their public sustainability goals. 

We’re here to help.

Using existing data to deliver GHG measurement and reduction services, APL Logistics is creating supply chain transportation sustainability solutions now. 

Join us.

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.

When a product moves, we measure the emissions. It’s that simple.

For first mile transportation, APL Logistics calculates the distance traveled multiplied by the amount of product in the vehicle.

Consolidation warehouses are an important step to reducing the amount of emissions in a supply chain. 

Here, APL Logistics calculates the time a product spends in a warehouse and multiplies that by standard electricity emissions factors.

Are your shipping containers full?

Product moves most efficiently when containers are full. APL Logistics uses its Container Utilization tool to analyze then optimize the fill-rate of containers to save cost and emissions.

Using standard emissions factors from the GHG Protocol, APL Logistics measures emissions associated with the number of days product waits at the port.

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

To measure emissions, APL Logistics multiplies the distance product travels by the carrier-specific emissions factor, when available. 

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

Customers often see large reductions in both cost and GHG emissions when using our Mode Optimization capabilities.  And yes – cargo arrives safely and on time.

Experience Sustainability

Measure GHG emissions

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

APL Logistics creates a GHG emissions profile by measuring each move of a product in the supply chain. Adding these individual movements together produces powerful reporting capabilities through our new LSS+ Platform and opportunities to consider and analyze efficiency programs.
