Supply & Demand Chain Executive, the only magazine in the supply chain industry covering the entire global supply chain, has selected Trinity Logistics as a recipient of the SDCE Green Supply Chain Award for 2020.
The Green Supply Chain Award recognizes companies making green or sustainability a core part of their supply chain strategy and are working to achieve measurable sustainability goals within their own operations and supply chains. The award also recognizes providers of supply chain solutions and services assisting their customers in achieving measurable sustainability goals.
“This year’s 13th-annual award recognizes small, mid-size and large enterprises that leveraged green practices and solutions to further drive sustainable improvements in their supply chain,” says Marina Mayer, editor-in-chief of Supply & Demand Chain Executive and Food Logistics.
“From software solutions to transportation management systems to several other initiatives designed to reduce carbon footprint and improve the re-use of materials, sustainability continues to rank as a key component to a stronger, safer and more efficient supply chain.”
Some of the initiatives that landed Trinity’s award are our SmartWay partnership program, Responsible Care Partnership, and offering intermodal as a mode for freight transportation.
Since 2008, Trinity has proudly participated in the Environmental Protection Agency’s SmartWay program, a federal initiative to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution that is created by freight transportation.
Since 2009, Trinity has been a part of the Responsible Care Partnership with a commitment to not only ensure the safe arrangement of chemical shipments, but improve company performance through community awareness, security, distribution, employee health and safety, pollution prevention, and process and product safety.
At Trinity, we have an entire Team dedicated to arranging intermodal or rail shipments. We often encourage our customers this alternative and more eco-friendly mode of freight transportation whenever possible.
Trinity Logistics is honored to receive the Green Supply Chain Award for 2020, making it another reason we are proud to be a part of Team Trinity. We realize the transportation industry holds a heavy responsibility in our planet’s health and look forward to continuing our commitment to our sustainability initiatives while keeping our company’s carbon footprint low.
It can be challenging for shippers of any size to choose how to transport their products. Which is better? Private fleets or outsourced logistics?
If you’re thinking about expanding your supply chain into shipping to and from Mexico, you’re not alone. Business between the US and Mexico is booming.
With costs rising recently, it’s easy to see why the challenge for many companies has been to reduce their transportation costs.
