Routescanner adds optimised supply chain routing service

Routescanner, a route planning tool for containerised transport, has launched a new interactive service allowing users to plot optimised routes on a digital dashboard based on a combination of lead times, carbon emissions, reliability, frequencies and the number of transshipments.

The application is aimed at shippers and freight forwarders, who will be able to use the online container shipping platform to explore routes and make direct contact with operators, with Routescanner processing approximately 750,000 schedules and timetables from a network spanning more than 4,500 terminals each day.

The system can also be used to produce carbon emissions reports, with the platform having recently been accredited for compliance with the Global Logistics Emissions Council (GLEC) standard for harmonised calculation and reporting of the CO2 footprint of logistics operations in a multimodal supply chain.

“Thanks to our carefully curated database, we are now well-placed to move forward,” said Chantal Gouka, Managing Director of Routescanner.

“Carbon emissions reporting for containerised transport is not a goal in itself, because supply chain optimisation always involves multiple factors. Our new service enables users to mix the various factors autonomously and interactively to achieve an optimised result that balances the interests of various departments.”
