Secaucus, NJ: Yusen Logistics (Americas) Inc., a leading third-party logistics provider, has been named to Inbound Logistics’ annual 75 Green Supply Chain Partners (G75) list.
This marks the fourth year Yusen Logistics has been named to the G75 list, which recognizes companies for their commitment to supply chain sustainability.
In recent years, Yusen Logistics has invested in green initiatives throughout its warehouse network. This year, the 3PL was recognized for upgrading its Carson, California campus with energy-efficient lighting and a white roof. Previously installed in the warehouse, the company expanded the LED system to include the office and exterior yard. The white roof keeps the warehouse cool by deflecting up to 80 percent of sunlight, resulting in significant energy savings.
In addition, Yusen Logistics is using lithium-ion battery-powered forklifts in its Carson warehouse, as well as at its Sumner, Washington facility. The lift trucks produce zero byproducts and the company expects to see an average energy savings of about 16 percent per truck.
“Our team takes pride in finding ways to reduce our environmental footprint and improve energy efficiency,” says Greg Futato, Vice President, Contract Logistics Group, Yusen Logistics. “We are truly honored to be recognized by Inbound Logistics again. It’s a testament to our commitment to sustainability.”
Inbound Logistics' 75 Green Supply Chain Partners highlights sustainability leaders in the logistics and transportation sector. The list is compiled based on four criteria – measurable green results, sustainability innovation, continuous improvement, and industry recognition.
