FedEx Launches Insights for Customer Emissions Tracking
FedEx Corp. will use its own scan data from its global logistics network to give customers access to emissions information.
The shipping company launched a new tool, FedEx® Sustainability Insights, that uses near-real time FedEx network data to estimate CO2e emissions for both individual tracking numbers and FedEx.com accounts.
Customers can also see historical emissions data by account and search by tracking number. The data will be shown in a variety of metrics such as mode of transport, service type, and country or territory for all eligible FedEx Express®, FedEx Ground®, and FedEx Freight® shipments.
Through an application programming interface (API), customers can transfer their historical and predictive emissions data to their own internal systems. This new tool can help customers manage their supply chain, boost operational compliance, and integrate emissions estimates into their shopping cart for their customers.
“We’ve heard from our shippers that they need more data on their shipping footprint as consumers increasingly weigh sustainability as a factor in purchasing decisions,” said Executive Vice President and Chief Customer Officer, Brie Carere, in a statement. “Through innovations like FedEx® Sustainability Insights, FedEx is empowering customers to access the information they need as part of our mutual pursuit of a more sustainable future.”
FedEx Corp. plans to reduce emissions in its worldwide operations and has a goal of global carbon-neutral operations by 2040. The company is focusing on areas such as the electrification of FedEx pickup and delivery vehicles globally; more efficient facilities, fuels, and fleets; and investments in natural carbon capture.
