CargoAi, a digital solutions provider for the cargo and freight sector, is collaborating with Neste to enable freight forwarders and their clients to reduce the carbon emissions of their cargo operations through the purchase of Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF).

The scheme complements CargoAi’s Cargo2Zero sustainability offering launched in October 2022, with customers now able to purchase¬†SAF in the booking flow – either after a booking is confirmed or when the cargo is being tracked.

“We are proud of this landmark partnership with Neste, as sustainability is at the core of all our product developments and customer interactions,” said Matthieu Petot, CEO of CargoAi. “Building on the CO2 Efficiency Score already available in our Cargo2Zero solution, will further encourage forwarders to enter into discussions with their own clients about what is needed for the industry to move forward towards reaching the industry’s net zero targets together. We are also enabling access for smaller freight forwarding companies in 110 countries to purchase SAF in smaller quantities.”

Neste’s MY SAF will be available to all CargoAi customers for any cargo booking while utilising CargoAi’s innovative digital booking platform. During the booking or trackign phase, freight forwarders will automatically be prompted with data of the CO2 emissions that their shipment will emit, calculated based on IATA standards. They will then have the option to purchase varying percentages of SAF to reduce emissions. Neste ensures the purchased SAF volumes are delivered and used by partner aircraft operators. The emissions reductions achieved will be reported back and can be used to credibly report against sustainability targets.

“We designed Cargo2ZERO as a suite of solutions for integrating and accelerating climate action into the air freight procurement process,” explained Magali Beauregard, CCO CargoAi. “Purchasing SAF remained until now a hard-to-navigate, resource-intensive process and often required purchases of large volumes, which made reducing emissions at the transactional level very difficult. With the direct purchase of SAF now embedded in the booking execution and tracking flows, we’re taking the next steps to empower climate action by offering our clients straightforward, user-friendly and verifiable means to ensure reduced emissions.”
