ATLANTA – June 22, 2015 – CHEP North America, a leading provider of supply chain solutions, has been named one of the G75 Green Supply Chain Partners by Inbound Logistics Magazine. The G75 Green Supply Chain Partners list recognizes and profiles companies that are demonstrating their commitment to sustainable supply chain, logistics and transportation practices. The selection process considers a company's involvement in three areas: participation in public-private partnerships; corporate sustainability initiatives and collaborative customer-driven projects.
“The companies on our list are seeing positive impacts on both their financial ledger and on corporate social responsibility measures, which is increasingly important in today’s challenging business environment. We applaud all of these leaders for their efforts on behalf of their customers, trading partners and the earth,” said Felicia Stratton, Editor-in-Chief at Inbound Logistics.
This is the seventh consecutive year CHEP has been recognized for its commitment to sustainability by Inbound Logistics.
“Being recognized by Inbound Logistics magazine as one of the G75 Green Supply Chain Partners is a demonstration of the progress we’ve made as a global organization to incorporate sustainability into everything we do. This focus includes our customers, our environment, and our communities,” said Dan Martin, Senior Vice President of Sales at CHEP North America.
“Receiving this acknowledgement for the seventh consecutive year is validation of the efforts all of our employees make around the world, everyday, when collaborating with both retail and manufacturing customers on creating a more efficient and sustainable supply chain.”
In 2014, CHEP was recognized by the publication for its transportation solutions, which eliminate empty backhauls and provide a more sustainable supply chain. As part of its broader supply chain solutions portfolio, including environmental sustainability solutions, fleet optimization, unit load optimization, platform management, and 17 other solutions, CHEP collaborates with customers to meet both their sustainability goals and business objectives across the supply chain.
