Sustainability Leader PITT OHIO Breaks New Ground with EDI Integration for Scope 3 Emissions Data on LTL Invoices

Pittsburgh, PA (April 25, 2024) - PITT OHIO, a leader in regional and national logistics services and sustainability in the transportation industry, announced today a new Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) solution for less-than truckload (LTL) invoices, empowering customers to access their unique Scope 3 emissions data.

PITT OHIO’s EVP and Chief Marketing Officer, Geoff Muessig, said, “PITT OHIO has long been a leader in providing estimates of carbon emissions from LTL shipments through our patented CO2 Track reports. Now, we are taking transparency to the next level by offering customers the ability to receive emissions data directly on their invoices via Electronic Data Interchange (EDI).”

PITT OHIO’s patented carbon emissions calculation apportions an amount of fuel per shipment for the pickup, linehaul, and delivery. “This breakthrough methodology goes beyond other calculations by estimating emissions based on how freight moves through the PITT OHIO network and the portion of the truck the freight used,” Muessig continued. 

Emissions from distribution and transportation of goods fall under Scope 3 Category 9 of the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol. Scope 3 emissions have become a hot topic for business as regulations such as the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) from the European Union and California’s Climate Corporate Data Accountability Act (SB 253). While each of these initiatives have different timeframes and requirements for businesses to follow, together they signal a change where carbon emissions tracking will be essential across the supply chain. Emissions from medium and heavy-duty trucks represent over 20% of transportation emissions. Reducing these emissions will be a necessary part of any company’s Net Zero goals. 

“Sustainability is more than a core competency at PITT OHIO,” said Justine Russo, PITT OHIO’s Director of Sustainability and Business Intelligence. “It is embedded in all aspects of our organization. By talking directly to customers about their Scope 3 emissions needs, we were able to improve upon our current solution. This allows PITT OHIO to provide Scope 3 emissions data to customers in multiple ways that work with their internal systems. The important part of any emissions tracking is to embed it into systems so that organizations can make business decisions that reduce carbon while maintaining the service they expect.”

Customers that are interested in this new EDI solution are encouraged to contact their PITT OHIO Sales Representative to discuss implementation.
