Transportation Insight Entrenches Position as Top Green Supply Chain Solutions Provider
Transportation Insight, a globally recognized Enterprise Logistics Provider and business strategist, has again received a Green Supply Chain Award from Supply & Demand Chain Executive. The honor marks Transportation Insight’s 12th sustainability award for enabling clients to achieve superior supply chain performance through highly efficient transportation and operational strategies that reduce cost and environmental impact.

A U.S. Environmental Protection Agency SmartWay® Excellence Awardee in 2016, Transportation Insight is recognized as an industry leader in freight supply chain environmental performance and energy efficiency. The Enterprise Logistics Partner architects logistics and supply chain solutions that help clients cut waste, eliminate expedited shipments, lower energy usage, reduce packaging, optimize transportation loads and modes, gain control over inbound and outbound shipments and improve communication and collaboration with transportation partners, vendors and customers.

Anchored in its proprietary Extended LEAN® methodology of continuous improvement for the supply chain and a consultative Co-managed Logistics® approach, Transportation Insight offers a robust technology platform to help manufacturers, retailers, e-tailers and distributors reduce their carbon footprint with innovative strategies focused on improving the service experience for end customers.

“Transportation Insight facilitates supply chain improvements that allow our client companies to become significantly better. Applying a continuous improvement mindset and deep multi-modal domain experience in a technology-rich platform, we’re able to customize high-impact network designs that realize efficiencies and protect profit. A byproduct of these efforts is a reduction of fuel usage, air emissions, vehicle miles and energy consumption across the global supply chain,” says Transportation Insight President and CEO Chris Baltz. “As we’re trusted by our clients to increase their long-term sustainability, we’re honored to be recognized for green best practices that also help our clients dominate their market.”

Transportation Insight’s creative solutions and proven processes extend beyond the shipping and receiving docks. With five Pros to Know and Lean-Certified tactical and strategic operators on staff, including 30 green belts, two black belts and a Master Black Belt, the multi-modal logistics expert not only identifies ways to streamline supply chain processes at a global level, but also can help companies optimize the packaging design of each item moving through the value stream network. Transportation Insight’s packaging optimization skillset can be especially beneficial to companies with a significant e-commerce distribution component by minimizing the total landed cost and environmental impact of each order they ship. Further, secondary packaging assessments can result in value-added savings.

Transportation Insight has helped facilitate significant improvement in Enterprise Logistics strategies for clients across a broad range of leading North American industries:
• One of North America’s largest food manufacturers leverages Transportation Insight's Integrated Analytics program to constantly measure network throughput and adjust production and inventory levels to minimize unnecessary transportation of raw materials and finished goods. The resulting network design saved the company millions of dollars and significantly reduced its environmental impact.
• One client saved millions of dollars through improved inbound LTL strategies, which also resulted in reduced fuel mileage, carbon emissions and fuel costs.
• A worldwide distributor providing time-sensitive supplies to large retailers reduced ongoing operational expenses and its small parcel and LTL transportation spend using detailed data analysis that resulted in DC footprint redesign, improved shipment consolidation and better alignment of customer order cycles and shipping patterns to the carrier network.
• A national retailer achieved millions of dollars in annual shipping program savings through improved inventory distribution strategies, rigorous parcel and freight billing audits, optimal carrier selection and deeper understanding of service failures and operational performance gaps that impacted customer service.

“When we design supply chain solutions for our clients, we have a number of tools that will help companies realize improvement across multiple areas of their business,” says Vice President of Solutions Engineering Sophie Dabbs. “Whether the goal is limiting costs, securing carrier capacity, reducing time-in-transit, understanding service failure root causes, automating manual processes or delivering reporting that helps companies monitor key performance indicators, Transportation Insight remains laser-focused on removing non-value-added activity throughout a client’s operations.”

The 2017 SDCE Green Supply Chain Award recognizes companies that are making sustainability a core part of their supply chain strategy and working to achieve measurable sustainability goals within their own operations and supply chains. The awards also recognize providers of supply chain solutions and services assisting their customers in achieving measurable sustainability goals. This year's 10th-annual awards recognize small, mid-size and large enterprises that leveraged green practices and solutions to further drive sustainable improvements in their supply chain.

“Honorees for this year’s award demonstrate that corporate social responsibility is a business imperative that transcends the company and extends throughout the supply chain, involving suppliers and customers,” says Supply & Demand Chain Executive Editor John R. Yuva. “The number of entries only increase year over year, demonstrating how critical sustainability initiatives are within companies. We congratulate this year’s honorees for their commitment to sustainability and recognize their tremendous achievements. Our honorees serve as role models for supply chains globally to expand their CSR reach and impact.”
