GoodShipping, the renowned carbon insetting leader, is delighted to unveil its latest venture into the realm of decarbonization services for road transportation. This move follows their groundbreaking success in pioneering carbon insetting for marine transport since 2017, showcasing their commitment to enhancing emission reduction solutions for both customers and the environment. It’s a vital step, considering that truck freight currently contributes to a staggering 16% of global transport emissions, and projections suggest this could surge to 25% by 2030 if immediate action is not taken.

Recognizing the pressing need to address this challenge, GoodShipping has expanded its solutions to encompass the road transportation sector, with the aim of reducing scope 3 emissions from transport.

Decarbonizing Supply Chains

In line with their highly successful approach in marine transportation, GoodShipping is orchestrating a seamless transition from fossil fuels to sustainable biofuels for road transport. This approach aligns with the concept that all carbon emissions contribute to the same atmosphere. Thus, any carrier utilizing biofuel signifies a reduction in fossil fuel emissions in the atmosphere. GoodShipping collaborates closely with an independent third-party verification partner to rigorously review procedures and calculation methods, ensuring the accurate allocation of carbon reductions to clients.

Through GoodShipping’s insetting services, cargo owners can now make their supply chains more environmentally friendly, even if they don’t own the means of transport used for shipping their goods. In return, cargo owners receive CO2e credits, bringing them closer to their sustainability objectives while showcasing their commitment to mitigating scope 3 emissions and promoting the adoption of biofuels.

A Successful Pilot Implementation

As part of their unwavering commitment to continuous improvement, GoodShipping initiated a pilot program to test and optimize their road insetting service. During this pilot, the road insetting service was trialed by a variety of international clients, including JAS Worldwide, Raben, Scan Global Logistics, and Hellmann Worldwide Logistics. Following successful evaluations, GoodShipping is now offering its road insetting services to all businesses seeking sustainable land-based freight transportation solutions.

Andrea Goeman, SVP Sustainability at JAS, expressed their enthusiasm for the expanded collaboration: “We are thrilled to collaborate with GoodShipping not only on sustainable marine biofuel but also on biofuel for road transport. This expansion of their insetting solutions aligns with our commitment to environmental sustainability and allows us to further create value for our customers.”

Jens Wollesen, COO of Hellmann Worldwide Logistics, emphasized their strategic focus on sustainability and the reduction of CO2 emissions, highlighting how the partnership with GoodShipping enables their customers to reduce Scope 3 emissions from land transport as part of their global seafreight supply chains.

Martin Andersen, Global Head of Sustainability & ESG at Scan Global Logistics, underlined the industry’s collective responsibility for environmental action and praised the collaboration with GoodShipping for extending their commitment to environmental sustainability.

Robbert Wehrmeijer, Managing Director of FincoEnergies Carbon Management, responsible for the GoodShipping brand, stressed the significance of expanding insetting solutions to road transportation to combat climate change effectively.

For companies eager to reduce emissions from road transportation, taking the first step toward sustainable freight transportation is encouraged by reaching out to GoodShipping. This expansion marks a significant milestone in the ongoing battle against climate change and represents a promising future for environmentally conscious road transportation.
