ClearMetal seeks to eradicate a portion of the 3% in global fossil fuel emissions that result from container shipping and even more from the larger logistics arena by reducing the inefficient movement of empty containers that results from inadequate technology. This is the industry's greatest issue next to fuel cost and ClearMetal's SaaS platform, based on Data Science and Machine Learning addresses the heart of the issue.
