Palm Harbor, FL (PRUnderground) May 11th, 2021
FreightCenter, a leader in third-party transportation management services and technology driven transportation services, has again been named to Food Logistics’ Top Green Providers list for the 4th year.
Food Logistics, the only publication exclusively dedicated to covering the movement of product through the global supply chain, annually recognizes providers whose products, services, or leadership enhances sustainable practices in the food and beverage industry.
Each year, the criteria for earning a spot on the list becomes 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.
SmartWay partners, like FreightCenter, annually report total mileage and freight tonnage to the program. SmartWay then aggregates partner data to measure the efficiency and sustainability of U.S. freight transportation. FreightCenter extends the benefits of its partnership to its customers by ensuring that:
- SmartWay-certified trucking companies provide transportation.
- Carriers use optimized lanes and routes, finding the best drivers by location; and,
- The program reduces carbon and particulate matter emission heavy-duty trucks.
“Our mission is to make green transportation both affordable and widely available. One advantage of working with a third-party provider, like FreightCenter, means we can help empower environmentally conscious shippers and help small businesses achieve their goals on all fronts. We can’t wait to continue evolving in this industry and helping more and more supply chains go greener,” said Ali Choiniere, COO at FreightCenter.
