Alan McKinnon – Professor of Logistics

Role of the Shipper in Decarbonising Maritime Supply Chains

 

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. This new study adopted a wider perspective including the land-based logistics operations that form a part of the end-to-end supply chain. Shippers, as the purchasers and users of transport services can influence the intensity of carbon emissions emitted through the logistics decisions they make. This chapter proposes a framework based upon 8 key parameters that link the economic output of an economy or industry to the CO2 emitted by maritime-related activities. Shippers can influence most, though not all, of these parameters in a way that reduces carbon emissions.   They can do this through their choice of port, hinterland transport mode and shipping line, their loading of containers and their scheduling of international deliveries.
