Link Logistics, a national last-mile logistics real estate company, and Carrier Global Corp., (NYSE: CARR) a global provider of energy services, said they will collaborate to deliver energy management and analytics across Link’s 550 million-square-foot facility network.

The collaboration is designed to enhance energy efficiency for Link’s assets and more than 11,000 customers, the companies said in an announcement earlier this week.

EcoEnergy Insights, a part of Carrier and provider of AI and Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled solutions and services, will help Link scale its revenue-grade utility metering and monitoring hardware. As a result, Link’s customers will be able to more actively manage their energy consumption to reduce costs and minimize their carbon footprints, the companies said.

“Our customers prefer energy-efficient buildings, which aligns with our dedication to minimizing our environmental impact on our path to achieving carbon-neutral operations by 2025,” said Luke J. Petherbridge, Link’s chief executive officer.  

“Link is one of the first industrial real estate players to harness the power of utility data insights at scale to generate impactful results,” said Sam Stockdale, senior vice president, head of sustainability at Link. “By joining forces with Carrier and EcoEnergy Insights, we gain access to industry-leading tools that help us break down barriers to energy data, deliver cost savings to our customers and meet our ambitious climate objectives.”

“We are looking forward to working with Link to deliver their climate and cost savings objectives,” said Ajay Agrawal, senior vice president, global services, healthy buildings and chief strategy officer at Carrier. “This collaboration is fully aligned with Carrier’s ambitious ESG goal to reduce its customers’ carbon footprint by more than 1 gigaton by 2030.”
