New zero-emission service by Gebrüder Weiss to offset the carbon footprint

Chicago – January 13, 2022 – Gebrüder Weiss, a global freight carrier with core businesses in land, air, sea freight and logistics, has introduced a new zero emission service to its North American customers. Customers have the opportunity to fully compensate for the CO2 emissions generated during the transportation of the cargo. Through zero-emission services, transportation and logistics providers can calculate and document CO2 emissions for all North American cargo transported worldwide by sea and air.

“It’s exciting to offer a new zero-emission service in Europe at the end of last year to North American air and sea shipping customers, which only provides complete and detailed transparency on carbon dioxide emissions from cargo. Not the road to climate neutrality. ” Mark McCullough, CEO of Gebrüder Weiss USA, said.

Emissions calculated using the web-based EcoTrans IT database are itemized on the freight invoice along with offset costs. Customer compensation goes to accredited climate protection projects on several different continents. All of these projects are carefully selected and closely monitored to significantly reduce or eliminate CO2 emissions. Users who offset the cargo will receive a certificate documenting support for the relevant project.

Gebrüder Weiss is proud to partner with our clients on their way to climate neutrality. We have set ambitious goals and are trying to achieve climate neutrality in our logistics facilities by 2030 using the electricity generated by our PV systems. In addition, the company has already deployed a series of low-emission trucks powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG, CNG), electricity and hydrogen (fuel cells).
