The Port de Barcelona Ecocalculator is a tool for calculating the CO2 emissions generated by transporting a container between Europe and the rest of the world through the Port de Barcelona.

This tool is sequential, and follows these steps:

1-Foreland port with which the Port de Barcelona has a maritime connection.
2-Direction of transport: European export or import
3-European location
4-Mode of transport of the overland section between the Port de Barcelona and the European location: road or rail. If rail, select the intermodal terminal near the hinterland location. Transport between the terminal and the location will be by truck.

The result obtained will be a proposed sea and land route between the foreland port, the Port de Barcelona and the European location, with total distances and CO2 emissions for each mode of transport. These results can be compared with an alternative route via another European port. The routes are shown on Google Maps and it is possible to generate a report of the results to export or print.

The tool considers the Port de Barcelona's offer of regular, direct and transhipment maritime services. For other European ports, it proposes real direct services and possible combinations using transhipment, which must be confirmed with the operator.

For rail transport, it offers a theoretical route between the Port de Barcelona - or alternative European port - and the intermodal terminal. It is necessary to confirm with the operators that there is a service running between these terminals.

The full description of the operation, and the calculation model of the Ecocalculator, is included in this Guide. For an in-depth analysis, to evaluate more complex transport chains and explore emission-reduction solutions, contact the Consulting Service:
