Metro’s ECO portal prepares for July launch

The new MVT Eco module monitors the energy emissions, emission costs and CO2 equivalent emissions, of each consignment we move, by every mode and will be available free from the 1st July, which means that Metro customers can monitor the environmental impact of their supply chains and participate in offset projects that will eradicate their CO2 footprint.

As a non-asset owning 3PL, 99% of our carbon footprint is generated by our customers’ shipments on planes, ships and trucks, that we do not own or operate, but this has not diminished our determination to be carbon neutral and support our customers in achieving the same ambition.

Consumers and corporate B2B customers are more aware of their carbon footprint, and there is increasing demand for goods, services and suppliers with a reduced environmental impact.

Companies who monitor, understand and minimise their carbon emissions have an advantage, creating an opportunity for differentiation based on sustainable practices.

We are creating innovative supply chain solutions that will help our customers to reduce CO2 emissions, set sustainability goals and achieve their environmental targets. 

Originally designed as part of our 4PL platform, the MVT Eco module will be available via our new MVT Portal. Customers can view key eco statistics related to their movements and export this data for further internal analysis.

To ensure our customers can have confidence in the data, our free emissions reports have been verified and conform to EN16258 to calculate and declare energy consumption and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

The MVT ECO data hub consolidates emission data across all routes and transport modes. It is accredited by Smart Freight Centre (SFC) with reporting methodology in conformance with the Global Logistics Emissions Council (GLEC) framework.

We are working with Comply Direct to help source Verified Carbon Standard offsets for customers wanting to offset the emissions associated with their shipments.

Subject to third party verification to one of the leading standards for voluntary offsets, these are a robust and reliable means to offset carbon emissions. In line with the UN sustainable development goals, the projects on offer also include additional community, social, environmental and biodiversity benefits. 

Examples of project types include protecting the Amazon rainforest, providing clean cookstoves to communities currently cooking on open fires, and delivering renewable energy to areas currently not on the grid.

MVT ECO will be officially launched on 1st July and is available to all customers, with simplified adoption and set up, to encourage adoption by our entire client base, with minimal disruption.

  • Track emissions for every shipment by route and modes of transport
  • Dynamic data, simple to interrogate
  • Aligned with the Global Logistics Emissions Council
  • Supply chain auditing to reduce your carbon footprint
  • Advice, guidance and offsetting initiatives to achieve your sustainability goals
