Elemica Wins Food Logistics Green Supply Chain Award 2018
4th Consecutive Win for Helping Process Manufacturers Undergo Digital Transformation that Leads to Sustainable Practices and Savings
Food Logistics’ annual Top Green Providers recognizes companies whose products, services, or exemplary leadership is enhancing sustainability within the food and beverage industry. Elemica was selected for helping food and beverage ingredient companies improve and achieve their measurable sustainability goals by digitizing supply chain processes for the products they buy, sell, and move to reduce their usage of valuable resources.
“Elemica is instrumental in helping companies substantially lower their energy usage and improve their carbon footprint by optimizing shipments and loads through their Digital Supply Network solution,” said David Cahn, Global Marketing Manager at Elemica. “This is an honor for Elemica, helping 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.”
“The agricultural sector and food supply chains at large have long recognized the importance of environmental stewardship for long-term sustainability in both business and for future food production globally,” notes Lara L. Sowinski, editorial director. “Food Logistics remains committed to promoting those in our industry who understand their leadership role in sustainability and work to raise the bar with new products, services and strategies each year.”
Food Logistics’ annual Top Green Providers recognizes companies whose products, services, or exemplary leadership is enhancing sustainability within the food and beverage industry.
