LoadDelivered Receives EcoVadis Silver Rating for Corporate Social Responsibility

CHICAGO, IL — November 14, 2019 — LoadDelivered, the freight management division of Capstone Logistics, has been awarded an EcoVadis silver rating for corporate social responsibility (CSR).

LoadDelivered scored in the top 30 percent of companies evaluated in the EcoVadis assessment, which considers a range of CSR issues grouped into four themes: Environment, Labor Practices & Human Rights, Fair Business Practices, and Sustainable Procurement. The EcoVadis methodology was built on international CSR standards, including the Global Reporting Initiative, the United Nations Global Compact, and the ISO 26000, covering 190 spend categories and 150 countries.

“Our clients are under immense pressure from their stakeholders to be transparent about their sustainability and CSR practices,” explains EVP of Client Management at LoadDelivered, Ross Vigil. “As consumers increasingly seek to align themselves with socially responsible brands, we’re proud to be a service provider helping our partners improve transparency, reduce risk and protect their brands.”

As part of its CSR efforts, 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. The LoadDelivered team also works with private fleet carriers to match consistent backhaul capacity with repetitive, high volume freight, which further reduces the carbon emissions associated with empty miles and provides cost savings for both shippers and carriers.
