Ekol reduces the mileage on road with its intermodal solution created by combining railroad, land and maritime transportation and minimizes the carbon dioxide, hydrocarbon, particle and nitrogen emission. With this environmentalist approach, Ekol Logistics aims to leave a better world for the next generations.
The Intermodal Transportation solution offered by Ekol Logistics is developed to provide an environment-friendly alternative. The utilization of this mode of transportation directs the majority of cargoes to maritime and railway transportation from the usual heavy lifter, road transportation. The fuel consumed and CO2 emitted for each trip on sea and railway transportation are compared against the figures to occur had road transportation been used, and the savings achieved are reported.
The calculations to determine savings are based on the emission figures of trucks compliant with Euro 5 standards. Within this framework, the average fuel consumption figure for Ekol's vehicles are 0.32 liters of diesel and 1.1 kg of CO2 emission per kilometer covered with a full trailer.
The counter on the home page provides the reflection of instant amount in current year calculated in proportion to the previous years. Calculation method was confirmed under ISO 14064-1.
= Consumption in Road Freight (CO2;Diesel) - Consumption in Intermodal (CO2;Diesel)
= (No of Trip Int. x Trip Distance x Avg Consumption per km (CO2;Diesel)) - (No of Trip Int. x (CO2;Diesel) For Each Trip)
