There are various reasons like the ship’s journey can be affected by extreme weather, or a time spent by the ship at ports, this can add up to increased emissions. Also, if the port times are not certain, then the outcome is speeding of ships, it eventually results in higher fuel consumption and higher carbon emissions.
