—This study aims to investigate the estimation of greenhouse gas emissions and simply analyzing the value of carbon credits of the government’s project, Rail Transfer Terminal Center at Inland Container Depot (ICD) Lat Krabang, Bangkok and Laem Chabang Port, Chonburi. The results reveal that the reduction of greenhouse gases (GHG) is at high rate and increases every year. As you can see, the emission of carbon dioxide equivalent reduces averagely 201,256.60 tCO2e per year. Additionally, government can gain from carbon credit approximately 90.84 million baht per year.
