Next year, companies in Europe with sales of more than €40 million or 250 employees will have to disclose their carbon footprint annually. This also includes the extent to which their own goods were transported internationally. For this reason, it is important for these companies as well as for the contracted logistics company to be able to document exact values of CO2 emissions. However, these values vary enormously depending on the cargo aircraft. For example, a Boeing 737-400 with 1t of cargo produces a good 10t of CO2, whereas a Boeing 777 produces only 4t on a distance from Frankfurt to San Francisco.

So the choice of aircraft plays a key role in calculating CO2 values for air cargo. And since many airlines are now successively modernizing their fleets, companies now have the opportunity to have their freight shipped with optimized CO2 emissions.
