Reduce emissions by moving more cargo in fewer containers

Based on 5 tons of cargo, shifting from air to sea freight on a London to New York journey could result in a 37 tonne saving in CO2 emissions.

With AELER, make the transition to sea with peace of mind. You won’t compromise on tracking, visibility, cargo protection, safety or security.

Insights on CO2 savings calculations methodology

How are the CO2 savings calculations done?

The calculations above are based on assumptions, to give a broad estimate of CO2 savings using AELER containers.

Some of our assumptions include:

  • choice of one ship type only
  • average ship fuel emission factor of 3.4
  • no consideration of truck or train transit
  • insulation material assumed to be Polyurethane only

In order to get a full calculation that will represent your real operational situation, with less assumptions, please contact us.

How were those computations validated?

The computations and data used in this calculator have been previously validated by three independent Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and sustainability experts:

Besides, AELER being part of the Smart Freight Center, the CO2 savings calculations are currently being validated against the GLEC-Framework.

Sustainability for flexitank shipping

Using flexitanks for liquid transport is the best way to save CO2 and money.

Our composite walls are up to 65% stronger than the walls of a standard steel container.

They can safely hold 28 tones of liquid payload - 17% more than a standard container.

Benefits Flexitanks

Sustainability for Insulated & Sensitive Cargo

Our container is uniquely constructed, providing passive insulation that is 3 times more effective than a standard container.

Save up to 100kgs of waste per container without compromising the safety of your cargo.

Various sensitive cargo, such as food, pharmaceuticals, textiles, medical devices, and chemical products, all require optimal conditions during transportation.

AELER's passive insulation significantly reduces the reliance on thermal blankets, desiccant packs, and other single-use insulation materials.

When substituting a non-operating reefer, the AELER container allows for the transportation of 11% more payload without compromising cargo conditions.
