June 22, 2021

HICKORY, N.C. AND ATLANTA, GA. (June 22, 2021) – Transportation Insight and Nolan Transportation Group were both named Food Logistics 2021 Top Green Providers. The only publication exclusively dedicated to covering the movement of product through the global cold food supply chain, Food Logistics annually recognizes companies whose products, services or exemplary leadership enhance sustainability within the food and beverage supply chain.

“Sustainability is a core focus across all of our divisions not only in 2021 but for years to come. This year, we launched our Go for Neutral initiative to support sustainability measures across our business units, our shippers and our carrier partners so we all can collectively lower our carbon footprint and positively affect the environment. Our impact is apparent in how we help our customers utilize the most efficient routes, optimize and aggregate their loads and reduce empty miles. At the same time, our internal programs are reducing waste in our 17 offices across the U.S.,” stated Ken Beyer, chief executive officer of Transportation Insight Holding Company. “This award highlights the tangible results our food and beverage customers are achieving, as well as our own initiatives focused on protecting our planet’s natural resources.”

Food Logistics editorial staff evaluates a company’s participation in such programs as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s SmartWay Transport Partnership and other recognized sustainability programs; facilities that are LEED-certified and/or feature solar panels, LED lighting and other energy-saving installations and retrofits; and other means of producing measurable reductions in GHG emissions, to name a few.

“Sustainability is the key to success, and the recipients of this year’s award prove that when sustainability matters to them, they will continue to do great things and make a difference in the industry,” says Marina Mayer, editor-in-chief of Food Logistics.

Both Transportation Insight and Nolan Transportation Group utilize a hybrid-digital approach, leveraging the benefits of logistics technology complemented by human expertise to automate activities and transition from paper to digital processes, so that businesses of all shapes and sizes can implement more sustainable, environmentally friendly operations. Being SmartWay Transport Partners, Transportation Insight and Nolan Transportation Group work with shippers and carriers to design and implement best practices that can be adopted among like-minded business partners to achieve win-win outcomes. These benefit efforts to improve equipment utilization, minimize packaging and, ultimately, reduce vehicle miles, energy usage and air emissions.

Transportation Insight and Nolan Transportation Group are featured among 2021 Top Green Providers in the June edition of Food Logistics.
