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 and the characteristics of the containers can be precised. We recommend to use the parameter containerSizeTypeCode to precise the size and type of the containers. The supported values and their meanings are : 20GP or 22G1 (20ft, General purpose (Standard)), 40GP or 42G1 (40ft, General purpose (Standard)), and 40HC or 45G1 (40ft High cube, General Purpose).

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.
