Canadian Pacific Kansas City yesterday launched an updated carbon emissions calculator to cover its combined rail network in Canada, the United States and Mexico.
The web-based tool is designed for customers to estimate the potential greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions they may achieve using CPKC's rail services compared to long-haul trucking alternatives, company officials said in a press release.
Expanding on the individual former Canadian Pacific and Kansas City Southern carbon emissions calculators, the updated version of the tool incorporates customer-specific shipping details to calculate routes across CPKC's rail network and commodity-specific GHG emissions.
The calculator also provides information on highway safety and other public benefits of shipping with CPKC's freight-rail services, company officials said.
Using the calculator will help CPKC customers make informed decisions on their freight transportation options, said President and CEO Keith Creel.
The tool is available on the CPKC website.
