Value-added Options

Following the explanations of the following options for specific customer segments and needs. Specifications and prices as per individual agreement.

Analytics and Central Data Storage

By purchasing the BI add-on tool "Analytics & Data Storage" for a surcharge of 30% on the licence prices, licensees receive dedicated access via their "mycarboncare" with the functions described below (ready autumn2022). The tool creates longer-term transparency on CO2/CO2e values and enables the management of CO2 /CO2e values caused by a company's logistical activities as well as those of its subsidiaries and/or external (sub-) customers.


Customer segments: all companies

Companies can offset their CO2 emissions by purchasing CO2 certificates from verified projects and thus reduce their corporate footprint. Prices depend on the selected projects and the amount of CO2 to be offset.

More Details and prices on request.



Customer segments: Transport companies

Specific calculations of CO2 values for individual vehicles and for complete FLEETS based on actual consumption values. Based on this, transport companies can use a BASIC or BUSINESS licence to calculate and provide CO2 values on a shipment basis for their customers..

More Details and prices on request.



Customer segments: Transport Management Software providers (TMS)

The TMS software is connected via API to CarbonCare's calculator thus enabling automatic data exchange for the calculation of CO2 values. The calculated values are displayed directly in the partner's software. Users (e.g. forwarders) of this software can access the calculated CO2 values.

More Details and prices on request.



Customer segments: Transport companies

Individual validation of self-determined emission data based on the standardised calculation method EN16258. Comparison with competitor companies based on CarbonCare data is also possible.

More Details and prices on request.


Data Input

To ensure correct calculation of emission values, the following data is required:

  • Internal reference (e.g. dossier number)
  • External sub-reference (e.g. truck plate number)
  • Cooling yes/no (default: no)
  • Terminal handling yes/no (default: no)
  • Weight in kg
  • Date of first transport segment
  • Routing with means of transport per sector
Container typically used in Road, Rail and Sea freight.

Data Output & "Analytics"

Results are available with TTW (CO2, CO2e) and WTW (CO2e) emission values in kg. The information is accessible to customers via "myCarbonCare" on our website. For all license types one CO2 emission certificate is generated per year.

We recommend the use of the add-on module "Analytics" with central data storage and continuous access to the data that has been submitted by the company and which the CarbonCare calculator has provided. The analysis is provided with filters, parameters and evaluation tables, e.g. per

Period (day, week, month, year, cumulative, etc.)
Means of transport (Truck, trip, vessel, routing, ORIG-DEST, etc.)
Customer name (e.g., when forwarders or carriers wish to make the results available to their customers)
