CHICAGO, IL—June 21, 2018—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 2018.
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.

“The agricultural sector and food supply chains at large have long recognized the importance of environmental stewardship for long-term sustainability in both business and for future food production globally,” notes Lara L. Sowinski, editorial director. “Food Logistics remains committed to promoting those in our industry who understand their leadership role in sustainability and work to raise the bar with new products, services and strategies each year.”
“The freight sector is one of the biggest culprits of harmful carbon emissions, and we believe adopting sustainable transportation practices can make a significant difference,” says Robert Nathan, LoadDelivered CEO. “We are committed to making sure our business decisions, our partners, and our vendors promote and embody sustainability. From leveraging data to decrease deadhead miles, to optimizing private fleet capacity, we are continually looking for ways to improve our operations for the betterment of the environment.”
In June of 2018, LoadDelivered was acquired by Capstone Logistics, a leading provider of outsourced supply chain solutions to distribution centers in the grocery, foodservice, retail and other industries. The partnership, which will allow LoadDelivered to retain its distinct brand, culture, and independence, will support strategic growth for both companies as they work toward providing a holistic supply chain solution to their customers through the convergence of service, data, and technology. Capstone is currently owned by The Resolute Fund III, L.P., a private equity fund managed by The Jordan Company (TJC). TJC has managed funds with original capital commitments in excess of $11 billion since 1987, with a track record of investing in and contributing to the growth of businesses across the transportation and logistics industries.
In 2018, LoadDelivered was named a Top 50 Freight Brokerage Firm based on net revenue by Transport Topics. Additionally, the company has been recognized by Food Logistics as both a Top 3PL & Cold Storage Provider and a Top Software & Technology provider, 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.
