Long haul air freight (>3700km) - Belly freight - EN16258
GLEC2019GlobalWeightOverDistance

Well-to-Wheel (WTW) emission intensity of freight using EN16258 methodology. The EN16258 standard requires that 95km is added to the Great Circle Distance (GCD) to account for maneuvering at each end of a flight. Belly freight is a cargo carried on passenger planes. Retrieved from the Global Logistics Emissions Council Framework for Logistics Emissions Accounting and Reporting. (2019). NOTE: The source does not clarify if the kgCO2e value is calculated using either IPCC Fourth Assessment Report (AR4) or IPCC Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) methodologies.
