Companies that made the list were awarded for leadership in sustainable transportation practices.
Palm Harbor, FL (PRUnderground) June 18th, 2018
FreightCenter, a leader in third-party transportation management services, has once again been named to Food Logistics’ Top Green Providers list.
Food Logistics, the only publication exclusively dedicated to covering the movement of product through the global supply chain, annually recognizes providers who products, services, or leadership enhances sustainable practices in the food and beverage industry. Each year, the criteria for earning a spot on the list become more stringent for applicants. For example, the editorial staff evaluates a company’s participation in such programs as the EPA’s SmartWay and other recognized sustainability programs.
SmartWay partners, like FreightCenter, annually report total mileage and freight tonnage to the program. SmartWay then aggregates partner data to measure the efficiency and sustainability of U.S. freight transportation. FreightCenter extends the benefits of its partnership to its customers by ensuring that:
- FreightCenter excludes dirty transportation providers from its offerings;
- SmartWay-certified trucking companies provide transportation;
- carriers use optimized lanes and routes, finding the best drivers by location; and,
- the program reduces carbon and particulate matter emission heavy-duty trucks.
“The agricultural sector and food supply chains at large have long recognized the importance of environmental stewardship for long-term sustainability in both business and for future food production globally,” notes Lara L. Sowinski, editorial director. “Food Logistics remains committed to promoting those in our industry who understand their leadership role in sustainability and work to raise the bar with new products, services and strategies each year.”
“We promise to do what’s right by our customers, our carriers, and our partners. We are noticing a rising demand for sustainable, eco-friendly transportation solutions. Making green transportation both affordable and widely available is one advantage of working with a third-party provider, like FreightCenter,” said Matthew J. Brosious, CEO at FreightCenter.
