Penske Logistics Recognized for Sustainability Efforts
Penske Logistics is a recipient of the 2014 Green Supply Chain award from Supply and Demand Chain Executive magazine. It is the second straight year the company has attained this honor.
According to the publication the award highlights: “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/or supply chains, in the areas of sourcing/procurement, fulfillment/logistics, operations, product life cycle management, and other areas of the supply chain.
“The awards also recognize providers of supply chain solutions and services assisting their customers in achieving measurable sustainability goals.”
Penske Logistics was given this award in part due to providing its customers sustainable supply chain solutions incorporating fuel efficiency, route optimization, and improved distribution center management productivity.
