FedEx offering customers emissions tracking tool

FedEx says that its new Sustainability Insights tool harnesses scan data from its global logistics network to give customers enhanced access to emissions information.

Created by FedEx Dataworks, the cloud-based engine uses ‘near-real time’ FedEx network data to estimate CO2e emissions for both individual tracking numbers and FedEx.com accounts.

Users can view historical emissions data by account as well as search by tracking number with their free FedEx.com login.

Data is displayed 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.

FedEx said that the capabilities presented by the Sustainability Insights tool will serve as the foundation for a new suite of tools for e-commerce customers. Through an application programming interface (API), customers can transfer their historical and predictive emissions data to their own internal systems.

The company added that machine learning powers the predictive API capabilities, which 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. “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.”

Through FedEx Sustainability Insights, users can view historical emissions data by account as well as search by tracking number with their free FedEx.com login.
