Flexport.org, the sustainability and impact arm at Flexport, announced a partnership with CHOOOSE, the leading SaaS platform empowering businesses to integrate climate action into customer experience, to accelerate the decarbonisation of air freight.

The joint solution will enable Flexport customers to reduce lifecycle emissions through supporting sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). This is part of Flexport.org’s comprehensive suite of climate impact and technology solutions available through the Flexport Platform, says an official release.

"The Flexport and CHOOOSE platforms are integrated via API to provide Flexport customers with a seamless, in-app experience as they evaluate solutions to act on their carbon footprint when booking freight. Through this book-and-claim chain-of-custody model, Flexport customers will be able to purchase certificates that can be applied as direct reductions against their scope three emissions. Scope three emissions are often the largest source of emissions for an organisation as they’re outside of a company’s direct control, and are driven by activities like supply chain operations and transportation. Any customer with air shipment emissions will be able to support SAF, regardless of the origin or destination, carrier or trade lane, and can do so with the confidence that it directly addresses airfreight emissions at the source, instead of relying on alternative paths, such as forestry management, to reduce their lifecycle carbon emissions."

Neel Jones Shah, EVP, Global Key Accounts and Chief Customer Officer, Flexport says: “Sustainable aviation fuels are integral to decarbonising the freight sector. Flexport’s partnership with CHOOOSE will allow our customers to seamlessly address their airfreight emissions in the Flexport Platform. We are an early supporter of CHOOOSE, and Flexport is proud to announce this collaboration and commitment to reducing transportation emissions across our business.”

Andreas Slettvoll, CEO, CHOOOSE adds: “CHOOOSE is proud to power Flexport and its customers in addressing air freight carbon emissions. We developed the CHOOOSE API to put impactful climate solutions in the hands of our partners and their customers. By offering a seamless emission calculation and purchase experience directly in their platform, Flexport is facilitating the much-needed acceleration of sustainable aviation fuel.”
