If your business is to import goods then you can input data about your inbound shipment. This will contain information about the inbound transportation and Entity Systems will add the carbon impact to the overall LCA report for each item.
If advance information about the shipment is known, then the origin destination distance is calculated from the information in the Vendor Data. If not, this information must be specified to calculate the inbound transportation impact. This screen must be filled out by the logistics operator who receives the shipment.
Filling out this data will result in the following data being generated per item, specific to the shipment:
|Emissions||Amount||Emissions per item|
|Air Traffic Intercontinental||0.5826 per kg||1491 kgkm||0.8686 kg|
|Truck+Trailer 24 tons net||0.09055 per tkm||6 kgkm||0.00054 kg|
