Multimodal Ocean-freight Shipment (Road, Rail & Ocean)

CarbonCare is a very powerful calculator of CO2 and other gases responsible for the Greenhouse Effect in Earth's atmosphere. It is specifically designed for the emissions generated by the commercial transport of goods (Logistics). It precisely calculates emissions by cargo movement in all continents. The calculator interface is designed to include multiple segments with different mode of transport combined: Road, Rail, Air, Sea and even Inland Waterways. Optionally, the emissions generated during the handling process (Loading, Unloading, Storage, etc.) and the extra CO2 generated by cooling the goods (Cold Chain), can be added to the calculation. 

In this page we show an example of CO2 emissions measure for an Seafreight shipment from Switzerland to Canada, including the Road and Rail transport movements at origin and destination. Next to the calculation of the harmful emissions, an option is available to offset the harmful emissions through projects of the myclimate foundation.
