Transportation Insight, an Enterprise Logistics Provider and business strategist, has again received a Green Supply Chain Award from Supply & Demand Chain Executive. The honor marks Transportation Insight’s 12th sustainability award for enabling clients to achieve superior supply chain performance through highly efficient transportation and operational strategies that reduce cost and environmental impact.
A U.S. Environmental Protection Agency SmartWay® Excellence Awardee in 2016, Transportation Insight achieves freight supply chain environmental performance and energy efficiency. The Enterprise Logistics Partner delivers logistics and supply chain solutions that help clients cut waste, eliminate expedited shipments, lower energy usage, reduce packaging, optimize transportation loads and modes, gain control over inbound and outbound shipments and improve communication and collaboration with transportation partners, vendors and customers.
Anchored in its proprietary Extended LEAN® methodology of continuous improvement for the supply chain and a consultative co-managed Logistics® approach, Transportation Insight offers a technology platform to help manufacturers, retailers, e-tailers and distributors reduce their carbon footprint with innovative strategies focused on improving the service experience for end customers.
Transportation Insight’s products and processes extend beyond the shipping and receiving docks. With five Pros to Know and Lean-Certified tactical and strategic operators on staff, including 30 green belts, two black belts and a Master Black Belt, the multi-modal logistics firm not only identifies ways to streamline supply chain processes at a global level, but also can help companies optimize the packaging design of each item moving through the value stream network.
The company’s packaging optimization skillset can be especially beneficial to companies with a significant e-commerce distribution component by minimizing the total landed cost and environmental impact of each order they ship. Further, secondary packaging assessments can result in value-added savings.
Transportation Insight has helped facilitate improvement in Enterprise Logistics strategies for clients across a broad range of leading North American industries, including pharmaceuticals.
