H&S Logistic Services chooses BigMile for CO2 insights
Logistics service provider H&S Logistic Services announces that it has chosen BigMile, a supplier of software for calculating and analysing transport-related CO2 emissions, using the GLEC method.
“As a 3-PL and 4-PL organisation, we are the spider in the web. Because we look beyond the chain, we can provide targeted advice for possible carbon footprint reductions,” says Bas Pilon, General Manager of WHS Logistics. H&S Logistic Services, a business unit within the H&S Group, is in charge of physical liquid bulk transport by road, rail or (sea) vessel. The logistics provider also offers services for procurement, planning, execution, invoicing and (data) analysis work for supply chain improvements.
“The aim of our services is to unburden and optimise the logistics process for our clients. For example, we provide the customer with data on cost and delivery time, along with other management information. We also want to offer our customers sustainable and CO2-neutral logistics solutions. We, therefore, invest in new concepts and innovative services,” Bas Pilon explains.
“From 2023, many of our customers have to report on their environmental and social impact and start paying CO2 taxes. Thanks to BigMile, we are prepared for this,” says Bas Pilon. “BigMile also allows for deeper analyses thanks to its interactive dashboard. This allows us to easily visualise the most polluting lanes. With this information, we want to approach our clients and transporters to look for possible CO2 savings together.”
On choosing BigMile, Pilon says: “We work for several multinationals. Therefore, we felt it was important to work with a party that is accredited according to the GLEC method. This is a globally recognised methodology for measuring greenhouse gas emissions from different modes of transport.”
Sven Poot, business development manager at BigMile: ‘BigMile Carbon Analytics is primarily intended for reliable insights into transport-related emissions at strategic and tactical levels. It is a SaaS platform that collects and combines data from the daily practice of shippers and logistics service providers. Thanks to its graphical user interface, companies can monitor their footprint, know where they can improve, see what works and know how to make an immediate impact. These concrete and tangible insights often form the basis for improvements that can reduce the carbon footprint in the chain.’
