Enterprise Third-Party Logistics (3PL) Provider Transportation Insight has received a Green Supply Chain Award from Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine for the third consecutive year for its help in reducing waste within clients’ supply chains.

Transportation Insight utilises its Extended LEAN® methodology to reduce non-value-added activities within a company’s four walls or even throughout the extended supply chain. Clients meet green supply chain and sustainability goals while making financial savings by removing waste.

Transportation Insight President and CEO Chris Baltz said: “We are honoured to be recognised for helping clients to produce green supply chain results through the implementation of transportation mode optimisation strategies that lower mileage and reduce carbon emissions.

“By combining the Extended LEAN methodology with our bundled Enterprise Logistics solution, customers reduce waste, which leads to improved sustainability and lower supply chain costs.”

Transportation Insight received the award as a result of its work with an outdoor power equipment replacement parts provider, which was looking for help with maintaining its high service levels with rapid response.

Using Transportation Insight’s business model and bundled logistics technology solutions, the company automated many manual processes related to transportation, procurement, documentation and tracking and leveraged the 3PL’s shipping recommendations to drive up the average weight per shipment, reducing the company’s overall transportation cost.

The SDCE Green Awards highlight companies that are making sustainability a core part of the businesses and supply chain strategies. About 100 submissions were received through an open nomination process.
