Ocean Network Express (ONE) and PARIS Optimal Transport Planning Solution (PARIS), the wholly owned subsidiary of Hutchison Port Holdings, will jointly pursue reducing carbon emissions embedded within their transport operations, both entities have announced.

As part of ONE’s commitment to reduce their environmental impact, it has already begun the process to achieve ISO 14001 Environmental Management System (EMS) certification for Europe and Africa region’s landside operations, expected to be completed by the end of 2021.

ONE’s main objectives for the EMS certification include: increasing the modal split of container haulage by barge and rail, increasing the total number of reloaded containers and establishing a greenhouse gas (GHG) emission baseline for ONE’s landside/inland operations.

Key to this goal is the collaboration with PARIS, enabling ONE to clearly track inland carbon emissions in the supply chain and lower emissions.

PARIS will enable ONE to clearly track inland carbon emissions in the supply chain and lower emissions. It will assist ONE by planning and optimising collection and delivery bookings in real-time using available truck, rail, and barge/feeder transport options.

The highly configurable software utilises advanced algorithms in parallel to processing to provide optimised transport planning and features to effectively manage transport exceptions, reduce empty mileage and improve service performance.

On a £20m transport spent (US$28m), PARIS has claimed that it can typically save between 5% and 8% of a transport budget including in excess of 1,000,000 km of reduced empty distance travelled by truck. Reduced empty mileage results in a significant carbon footprint reduction.

The collaboration between PARIS and ONE is focussed on enhancing the carbon tracking aspect of the PARIS software to create ONE’s first landside GHG emission baseline. The project commenced in early 2021 and from 2022, ONE will begin to collect emissions data from all landside container movements within the Europe and Africa region using the PARIS emissions algorithm.
