NTG Wins 2020 Food Logistics Green Supply Chain Award


Committed to Helping Customers Advance Supply Chain Sustainability

Atlanta, GA – Nolan Transportation Group (NTG), a leading third-party logistics provider with nationwide strategic truckload and less-than-truckload shipping solutions, has won the 2020 Food Logistics Green Supply Chain Award. NTG is committed to helping customers advance their supply chain sustainability by measuring, benchmarking and implementing freight transportation efficiency strategies. When shipping across various modes of transportation, the NTG team ensures shipments are made with the highest quality carriers providing the greatest care capable of exceeding customer requirements and delivery times.

“The food and beverage industry benefits from NTG’s ability to help shippers and carriers collaborate on shipments to find capacity, avoid disruptions and penalties, and optimize loading/unloading times, which saves on fuel and lowers emissions,” said Geoff Kelley, President of Nolan Transportation Group. “We are excited to win this prestigious award and be recognized for helping our customers meet their sustainability goals.”

“Our annual Top Green Providers award recognizes companies whose products, services, or exemplary leadership enhance sustainability within the food and beverage industry. From technology that reduces a fleet’s carbon footprint to software that helps shippers drive energy efficiency, to systems and processes that help reduce the carbon and environmental impact of its customers’ supply chains, these top green providers continue to practice the ultimate in sustainability year over year,” says Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief of Food Logistics.

As a certified SmartWay Partner, NTG helps customers improve logistics operations with a goal of reducing the carbon footprint. Strategies include:

  • Backhaul opportunities to eliminate empty miles with lane matching opportunities
  • Load consolidation to maximize cargo space, decreasing truck congestion on the road
  • Route optimization techniques to reduce carbon emissions and fuel usage
  • Reduce idling time at facilities by scheduling more efficient loading/unloading appointments

NTG also has an exclusive partnership with a drop trailer program that limits wait times and offers drop and hook freight solutions to shippers and carriers. Trailers are also used for storage capabilities with the drop trailer program, optimizing warehouse space. Drop-and-hook freight involves a trailer that is pre-loaded and simply picked up and dropped at another location. This shortens wait times and prevents trucks from idling, reducing carbon emissions.
