Metro Shipping launches new ECO tool

Tracking and offsetting carbon emissions within the supply chain
Metro’s new MVT ECO module has been launched with selected customers. It monitors the energy emissions, emission costs and CO2 equivalent emissions, of every consignment moved, by every mode, so that shippers can monitor and have the option to offset their CO2 emissions.
 
As a non-asset owning 3PL, 99% of Metro’s carbon footprint is generated by their customers’ shipments on planes, ships and trucks. However, that does not diminish their determination to be carbon neutral and support their customers’ in achieving the same ambition.
 
By working with customers, suppliers and carrier partners, Metro are measuring, reporting and offsetting emissions, to build greener supply chains that drive down CO2 and waste.

The MVT ECO module is a cloud-based, software-as-a-solution, that is available, free-of-charge, to all shippers on their MVT dashboard, where they can view key eco statistics related to their movements, to see which areas will benefit most from emissions offsetting and where efforts can have the most impact.
 
The free emissions reports have been verified and conform to EN16258 for the calculation and declaration of energy consumption and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
 
The MVT ECO data hub consolidates emission data across all routes and transport modes and is accredited by Smart Freight Centre (SFC) with reporting methodology that is in conformance with the Global Logistics Emissions Council (GLEC) framework.
 
Metro are working with Comply Direct to help to source Verified Carbon Standard offsets and support a number of verified carbon offset projects including renewable energy and natural resource conservation, for customers wanting to offset the emissions associated with their shipments
