The 2010 Green Supply Chain Award recognizes companies that 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 Lifecycle Management, and other areas of the supply chain.
“We are honored to be recognized by Supply & Demand Chain Executive for our sustainability initiatives,” said Dan Dershem, President and CEO of LeanLogistics. “Our GreenLanes™ solution reduces empty miles and overall transportation costs, so both carriers and shippers benefit from the reduced carbon footprint of the transportation industry.”
