Like all other business sectors, logistics has to contribute its share to the sustainable transformation of our economies, as well as in reducing absolute GHG emissions and enhance resource efficiency to, thus, meet Paris Agreement’s‘ objectives. Current research at the Fraunhofer Institute for Material Flow and Logistics IML in Dortmund (Germany) is designed to contribute to global efforts in reducing the environmental impact of logistics. One focus is laid on logistics sites that play a connecting role within transport chains and refer to all sites that combine different transport legs (within and between modes) or are the starting or end point of transport chains. The presentation outlines current challenges to standardizing emissions calculation of global logistics chains and summarizes the status quo of current transport chain emissions calculation standardization developments at ISO level. Kerstin Dobers introduces Fraunhofer IML’s approach for GHG emissions accounting at logistics hubs at a service-level and initial results on emission intensity values.
