Emission Tariffs

The key value proposition of Unifaun TMS is to give shippers insight and control over their transports. The priority of Unifaun´s customers has always been to reduce cost, improve operational efficiency and minimize inventory. These are still the main reasons for investing in a TMS, but there is now one more as important reason: reducing transport emissions!

Why Emission Tariffs?

Use a consistent and reliable methodology for emission calculation.

Calculate emissions in real time on consignment level.

Enable decision making and detailed analysis based on your emissions.

Together for a greener future

Emission Tariffs is an innovative way to calculate emissions, using the proven format from traditional transport cost tariffs. The concept is developed in close partnership with the Network for Transport Measures (NTM), who calculate the tariffs and vouch for the methodology, and Ovako, who will be the first TMS customer to take Emission Tariffs into use. Ovako will start out focusing on greenhouse gas emissions (GHG), from well to wheel.

Read about how Ovako wants to become the most sustainable steel producer in the world and how the work on reducing transport emissions is an important step in that direction.

We have been working with Unifaun over the past three years and implemented their Transport Management System across our production units in Sweden and Finland. Unifaun TMS made it possible to go from reactive to becoming proactive in our transport management, reducing cost and improving the service quality. We are now very excited to start taking emission fully into account in our decision making, actively steering our volumes to the best transport option from a sustainability perspective. This is aligned with Ovako’s strategic position as one of the most sustainable steel producers in the world.

Ted Lundström, Head of Logistics at Ovako

This is a strategic shift for Unifaun TMS. We have historically been focused on the traditional cost driven business case for TMS investments, but we now want to take a new approach and make transport emission reduction the main priority. Several billions worth of freight is managed through our TMS every year and we believe we can make a real difference by making our TMS the Green TMS.                     

Johan Hellman, Product Manager

The purpose of NTM is to establish common methods across the transport industry to measure emissions in a consistent and credible way. Thanks to our cooperation with Unifaun and the way they will integrate emissions as a decision factor in their TMS, our partners will be able to not only measure but also actively reduce their transport emissions.

3 steps to get started

Step one: calculating emission factors 

Calculate emission factors using a reliable and scientific methodology. NTM is an NGO that has over 20 years experience in exactly this. 

Step two: implementing emission calculation 

Implement emission calculation in the operational transport management process so that emission data is available fast and on a detailed level. 

Step three: using emissions in operation decisions 

Start taking emissions into account in operational decisions. Giving priority to the carriers and delivery options that are the most sustainable.

Use your TMS to reduce emissions, not only costs!

More and more companies are realizing that transport related emissions are a large part of their total environmental footprint. At Unifaun we want to help our customers do something about this.

We are working on an addition to our TMS that will enable users not only to measure emissions but to also actively work to reduce them.


During the webinar Unifaun will show you:

  • An innovative way to calculate emissions from transportation in a fast and reliable way.
  • How to use these calculations to meet reporting needs and track progress over time. 
  • How to actively steer daily transport decisions based on emission parameters.
