NTG Prioritizes Sustainability in the New Year

Nolan Transportation Group (NTG) continues to be committed to helping customers and carriers advance supply chain sustainability by measuring, benchmarking and implementing freight transportation efficiency strategies.

Last month, Supply & Demand Chain Executive (SDCE), a publication focused on sharing information on the entire global supply chain, named NTG a recipient of the SDCE Green Supply Chain Award for 2020. The Green Supply Chain Award recognizes companies making green or sustainability efforts a core part of their supply chain strategy and working to achieve measurable sustainability goals within their own operations and supply chains. The award also recognizes providers of supply chain solutions and services assisting their customers in achieving measurable sustainability goals.

Thinking about sustainability as a whole, the NTG team is dedicated to increasing technology to ensure sustainability in all aspects of our business. In addition to being a SmartWay Partner, which helps the company focus on measuring and improving logistics operations for customers with the main goal of reducing the carbon footprint and emissions, NTG provides multiple solutions to successfully execute green initiatives within the supply chain industry.

These solutions include:

  • Reducing greenhouse gas emissions
  • Optimizing routes and modes to ensure fuel usage is reduced
  • Reducing idling time
  • Load consolidation opportunities
  • Backhaul opportunities

More is to come on the sustainability front from NTG in 2021. The team is working on new company initiatives and is putting this effort at the forefront of conversations.
