CHICAGO, IL—June 18, 2019 — Food Logistics, the only publication exclusively dedicated to covering the movement of product through the global food supply chain, has named LoadDelivered to the Top Green Providers list for 2019.
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/or feature solar panels, LED lighting and other energy saving installations and retrofits that produce measurable reductions in GHG emissions, to name a few.
“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."
LoadDelivered has worked to enhance sustainability through its proprietary digital freight matching technology. This technology optimizes routes and capacity utilization for its customers and carriers, thereby reducing deadhead miles and harmful carbon emissions.
“Through digital freight matching (DFM), the LoadDelivered technology identifies loads that are ready for pick-up in the right locations, at the right times,” said Jon Ackerman, EVP of Procurement at LoadDelivered. “This precise alignment of needs allows carriers to effectively reposition their fleets for reload opportunities and eliminate non-productive miles from their operation.”
The LoadDelivered team also works with private fleet carriers to match consistent backhaul capacity with repetitive, high volume freight. The company’s private fleet optimization makes the entire transportation network more efficient by eliminating empty miles, reducing carbon emissions, and providing cost savings for both shippers and carriers.
This marks the second consecutive year LoadDelivered has been recognized as a Top Green Provider by Food Logistics. Additionally, the company has been recognized by Food Logistics as both a Top 3PL & Cold Storage Provider and a Top Software & Technology provider. It has also been named a Top 50 Freight Brokerage Firm by Transport Topics, included on the Crain’s Fast 50 list of fastest-growing companies in Chicago, and named an Inc. 5000 fastest-growing private firm in America.
