HICKORY, N.C. AND ATLANTA, GA. – Transportation Insight and Nolan Transportation Group were both named Food Logistics 2021 Top Green Providers. The only publication exclusively dedicated to covering the movement of product through the global cold food supply chain, Food Logistics annually recognizes companies whose products, services or exemplary leadership enhance sustainability within the food and beverage supply chain.
“Sustainability is a core focus across all of our divisions not only in 2021, but for years to come. This year, we launched our Go for Neutral initiative to support sustainability initiatives across our business units, our shippers and our carrier partners to collectively lower our carbon footprint and positively impact the environment. Our impact can be seen by helping our customers utilize the most efficient routes, optimize and aggregate their loads and reduce empty miles or by implementing programs to reduce waste in our 17 offices across the U.S.,” stated Ken Beyer, chief executive officer, Transportation Insight Holding Company. “This award highlights the tangible results our food and beverage customers are achieving, as well as our own initiatives focused on protecting our planet’s natural resources.”
Food Logistics editorial staff evaluates a company’s participation in such programs as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s SmartWay Transport Partnership and other recognized sustainability programs; facilities that are LEED-certified and/or feature solar panels, LED lighting and other energy-saving installations and retrofits; and other means of producing measurable reductions in GHG emissions, to name a few.
“Sustainability is the key to success, and the recipients of this year’s award prove that when sustainability matters to them, they will continue do great things and make a difference in the industry,” says Marina Mayer, editor-in-chief of Food Logistics.
