In the last few decades, the building evidence that CO2e emissions lead to climate change has pointed to a need to reduce CO2e emissions. This research uses five scenarios in the context of UK import trade to assess total CO2e emissions and costs of import re-routing containers. The overall objective is to assess possible carbon mitigation strategies for UK supply chains by using a combination of alternative ports and revised multimodal strategies. The model adopted includes three elements: port expansion, container handling and freight transport. The alternative scenarios explore different settings modal shift and short sea shipping.
