Insight into where savings can be made

“We have been calculating and allocating the CO₂ emissions of our transport for a number of years. As BigMile now gives us access to detailed CO2 emissions data, we know which parts of the chain still have scope for optimisation. The benefit of BigMile is that the dashboard showing the results of your measurements gives you greater control. You know exactly where there is room for improvement in terms of your CO₂ emissions. We can even analyse the last 400 kilometres inland from an African port – part of an extremely long supply chain. These analyses clearly reveal where there is potential for further reductions.”
