Last-mile delivery solutions provider DispatchTrack has launched an AI-powered carbon emissions tracking system to help companies meet their supply chain sustainability goals.
Available as a feature in the DispatchTrack routing console, CO2 tracking has been designed to enable companies to better understand their existing carbon output on a per-route, per-stop and per-vehicle basis. This is expected to reduce routes’ CO2 output and gather data to illustrate the impact of their sustainability initiatives.
DispatchTrack’s AI-powered route optimization engine also shows companies green delivery options that leverage the more efficient routes with fewer miles driven and less fuel used. By taking into consideration the whole day’s stops and shortening the total distance that drivers have to travel in order to fulfill their orders, DispatchTrack expects to help last-mile delivery companies reduce fuel consumption across their fleets by at least 10%. The CO2 tracking system can also configure emissions for different vehicles and load types.
DispatchTrack’s CO2 tracking feature can be added to a customer’s existing DispatchTrack portal. Emissions data is included within the routing and reporting screens, enabling users to visualize carbon emissions for each stop. The data dynamically updates as routes are changed, all based on configurable emissions expectations based on different vehicle and load types.
Alex Buckley, general manager of Europe, the Middle East and Africa and Asia-Pacific operations at DispatchTrack, commented, “Consumers are making more and more of an effort to make sustainable choices. What better way for brands to help them do that – and show off their own success at boosting sustainability – than by being able to seamlessly track and report the reduction of CO2 emissions in their deliveries?”
Satish Natarajan, co-founder and CEO of DispatchTrack, said, “When it comes to the last mile, businesses around the world are taking sustainability seriously. There’s mounting pressure to do better and to invest in initiatives that actually reduce CO2. With the industry’s first AI-based CO2 tracking capabilities, we’re helping our customers double down on their net zero commitments and achieve their sustainability goals. By providing CO2 emissions numbers in real time and route optimization powered by AI, DispatchTrack is helping our customers reduce their emissions with confidence and become even more competitive.”
