This endpoint returns CO2e emissions (i.e CO2e equivalent emissions) for a voyage from a given inland port to another using the inland waterways. The ports can be given either as locodes or as coordinates.
You must provide either fromLocode or fromCoordinates and either toLocode or toCoordinates.
The weight of the transported goods can be given.
The number of containers, the size and the type of the containers can be precised. The allowed size and type combinations are : 20 ft / STANDARD ; 40ft / STANDARD ; 40ft / HIGH_CUBE and 45ft / HIGH_CUBE.
In such case, if no weight is passed, an estimated weight of the goods will be calculated based on the number of TEU.
If no weight nor number of containers are specified, the API returns the amount of CO2e for 1 metric ton of goods.
If known, the type of inland vessel can be given. By default, a motor vessel is used to compute CO2e (MOTOR_VESSEL).
The response contains WTT (well-to-tank) and TTW (tank-to-wheels) CO2e emissions in g for the amount of goods carried.
The response contains a parameters field which contains all the parameters that were passed in the query and the default values if some parameters were not passed.
The response contains a properties field which contains the useful information that was used for the calculation, for example the distance of the route calculated. The property dataType precise if the data used to calculate the CO2 emissions is default data (representarive of average operating practices) or modeled data (taking into account vehicle information).
The emissions are calculated using the GLEC framework.
