Liner companies are struggling to meet their Scope 1 emissions intensity results targets as congestion delays leave their ships sitting at anchor for weeks at a time.

These emissions intensity results are based on the volumes of CO2 produced to transport a container over a specific distance across the ocean.

But rampant supply chain disruptions that leave ships at anchor burning additional fuel for days, sometimes even weeks, before they can dock and discharge their containers are having a detrimental effect on emissions intensity results.
