Digital platform to identify Port of Rotterdam’s emissions
11 February 2022
The Port of Rotterdam Authority and BigMile are developing a digital platform to identify transport-related emissions in the port, providing insight into emissions at a business location, for example, and which should also provide companies with more details on carbon and other emission levels in their total transport chain. Testing has hitherto involved a pilot project to calculate seagoing and inland vessel movements in Rotterdam – with road and rail transport to be added at a later stage. The goal for the coming six months is to include emissions from supply chains en route to and leaving the port of Rotterdam in order to clarify transport emissions from door to door. In the first project phase, the focus is on the port of Rotterdam area, from 60 kilometres offshore to the Brienenoordbrug.
