Elemica Wins Food Logistics Green Supply Chain Award 2019
5th Consecutive Win as Clients Undergo Digital Transformations that Lead to Sustainable Practices and Savings
Wayne, PA– June 18, 2019 – Elemica, the leading Digital Supply Network for process manufacturing industries, has been named to the Food Logistics 2019 Top Green Supply Chain Providers for the 5th consecutive year.
Elemica helps food and beverage ingredient customers improve and achieve their measurable sustainability goals through the automation of manual processes reducing their usage of paper, which saves trees and other resources.
“The Elemica Digital Supply Network solution helps businesses improve their carbon footprint by optimizing shipments and loads, which saves mileage and fuel,” said David Cahn, Global Marketing Manager at Elemica. “Manual approaches are costly, time-consuming, and fraught with errors. Automating business processes for buying, selling, and moving products improve efficiencies and reliability, including meeting sustainability goals.”
“Our Top Green Providers demonstrate leadership in sustainability throughout the global food supply chain, from better management of natural resources to technology applications and operational improvements that reduce food waste from the farm to the retailer to the end consumer,” notes Lara L. Sowinski, editorial director. “Environmental stewardship is a defining feature for these companies, as is their determination to continually raise the sustainability bar year after year.”
Elemica helps 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. Ensuring that orders are correct, shipped on time and shipped to the right location in the right quantities, produces successful first-time deliveries that lower costs and energy consumption.
With Elemica’s Road Solution, companies can book slots/appointments for arrivals or departures, ensuring the right team & equipment are at the dock to facilitate loading and unloading. This also eliminates wasteful idling of trucks while waiting to be filled or unloaded, thus lowering energy usage and carbon emissions.
Food Logistics’ annual Top Green Providers recognizes companies whose products, services, or exemplary leadership is enhancing sustainability within the food and beverage industry. Each year, the criteria for earning a spot on the list become more stringent for applicants. For example, the editorial staff evaluates a company’s participation in such programs as the EPA’s SmartWay and other recognized sustainability programs; facilities that are LEED-certified, and feature solar panels, LED lighting and other energy-saving installations and retrofits that produce measurable reductions in GHG emissions, to name a few.
Elemica is the leading Digital Supply Network for the process manufacturing industries. Elemica accelerates digital transformation by connecting, automating, anticipating, and then transforming inter-business supply chain processes for the products they buy, sell, move, and comply. Launched in 2000, customers process over $500B in commerce annually on the network. For more information, visit www.elemica.com.
