In the logistics sector, technologies play an important role: within the logistics and transportation sector, the implementation of the latest technological tools streamlines operations, reduces risk, and also contributes to the care of the environment.
Companies in the logistics sector – considered one of the most polluting – are committed to processes and technological improvements that reduce pollution.
Bridging the gap between the carbon footprint emitted by transport and compensation: the great challenge of the logistics sector
MapLink has spent 22 years developing technology for companies across all industries to grow their businesses through location data intelligence. Furthermore, with its latest and innovative developments, CO2 fireCompanies can calculate the carbon footprint of their vehicles so that they can offset it, find solutions and thus reduce the impact on the environment.
Using this API (acronym for Application Programming Interface), companies will be able to:
- amount of CO2 emitted on the route
- Know the amount of CO2 emitted on a given route and plan sustainability actions to reduce this impact.
- fuel consumption
By entering the type and price of fuel used, the CO2 API provides data on consumption and the total amount spent in general indicators of the route.
Additionally, the service has three different integration options:
Use it freely: Indicated for customers who consume other routing services and only want to receive CO2 emissions calculations. In this case, in addition to the type of fuel and the average consumption of the vehicle, it will be necessary to indicate the distance covered on the route (in meters).
Trip API + Emission API: Suitable for customers using the Travel API. The distance traveled in the route result is used to calculate.
Recommended for customers using the Toll – Directions API (GMP) for the Maps API + Emission API, where the distance traveled in the route planning result is used to calculate. In this case, the API will return a count of tolls and CO2 emissions.
