Carbon emissions from the maritime sector

Carbon emissions from container shipping: an analysis of new empirical evidence
Paper

Acciaro, M. and McKinnon, A.C., International Journal of Transport Economics 42, 2, 211-228 (2015)

In the last decade researchers have been looking at ways of reducing the carbon intensity of shipping operations that globally account for approximately 3% of world carbon emissions. As a result of regulation and firms’ efforts to innovate, the maritime sector has introduced new technologies and practices such as slow ... ...

The Possible Influence of the Shipper on Carbon Emissions from Deep-sea Container Supply Chains
Paper

McKinnon, A.C.,

Maritime Economics and Logistics, 16, 1, 1-19 (2014)

The extent to which shippers can influence the level of carbon emissions from the deep-sea container supply chain is examined in this article.

An Assessment of the Contribution of Shippers to the Decarbonisation of Deep-Sea Container Supply Chains
Paper

McKinnon, A.C., Proceedings of the 2nd Annual Conference on Low Carbon Shipping, University of Newcastle upon Tyne (2012)

This paper summarises the results of an interview survey of large shippers which enquired about their possible role in reducing carbon emissions from global supply chains containing a deep-sea container movement. It focuses on four ‘decarbonisation’ parameters that they can influence: channel structure, container fill, backloading of empty containers and logistical adaptation to slow steaming. ...

Role of the Shipper in Decarbonising Maritime Supply Chains
Chapter

Woolford, R and McKinnon, A.C., in Notteboom, T. (ed.), Current Issues in Shipping, Ports and Logistics, VUB Press (2011)

  This book chapter examines carbon emissions from the deep-sea container supply chain. It does this from the standpoint of the shipper (i.e. cargo owner). Carbon emissions from international shipping have been the subject of considerable research in recent years, most of it concentrating on the design and operation of ocean going vessels. ...
