Low Carbon Emissions Transportation

A Make Over for the Carbon Footprint Caused by the Transportation Process

Not only manufacturing, but also transportation processes themselves produce a significant carbon footprint. Regarding transportation process, the capacity of marine transportation is larger than air transportation and carbon dioxide emissions per unit of marine transportation is also lower than air transportation. For protecting the environment, BenQ plans to reduce air transportation and choose marine transportation to reduce carbon dioxide emissions during the transportation.

Many shipping firms have reduced sailing speed for economical benefit and environmental protection. According to related research, when the speed of a ship drops from 24 knots to 18 knots, it would reduce fuel wastage and carbon dioxide emissions by 60%.

BenQ not only verifies conformance of transportation service to our requirements but also demands logistics service providers (LSP) to provide ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certification in LSP selection procedure. If vendors can provide ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certification and conform to our requirement for freight cost and service, they are likely to become qualified LSPs
