New Zero Emissions Service From Gebrüder Weiss Allows North American Air and Sea Customers to … | Nation/World

CHICAGO, Jan. 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Gebrüder Weiss, a global freight forwarder with a core business of overland transport, air, and sea freight and logistics, has introduced its new Zero Emissions service to its customers in North America. Customers will now have the opportunity to fully compensate for the CO2 emissions generated during the transport of their cargo. Through its Zero Emissions service, the transport and logistics provider can compute and document the CO2 output for every North American shipment carried worldwide by sea and air.

“It’s exciting to bring the new Zero Emissions service that was rolled out late last year in Europe to our air and sea transport customers in North America. It not only gives them full, detailed transparency on their shipments’ carbon footprint, it also provides a path to move towards climate neutrality,” said Mark McCullough, CEO of Gebrüder Weiss USA.

The emissions calculated using the web-based EcoTransIT database are itemized on the freight invoice together with the offsetting costs. Customers’ compensation payments are channeled into certified climate-protection projects on several different continents. All carefully selected and closely monitored, these projects either significantly reduce CO2 emissions or eliminate them. Users offsetting their freight receive a certificate documenting their support for the relevant project.

Gebrüder Weiss is proud to partner with its clients on the road to climate neutrality. It has set ambitious goals and by 2030, it is seeking to achieve climate neutrality at its logistics facilities by using electricity generated with photovoltaic systems. Moreover, the company already deploys a range of low-emission trucks that are powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG, CNG), electricity, and hydrogen (fuel cells).
