Accellos earns 2012 Green Supply Chain Award from Supply & Demand Chain Executive
Accellos announced the company has been included in the 2012 Green Supply Chain Awards article by Supply & Demand Chain Executive. Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s Green Supply Chain Awards recognize small, mid-size and large enterprises that have leveraged a variety of sustainable approaches—including technology, strategies and solutions—that companies are employing, and spotlights concrete results that many of these leaders witness due to their sustainable efforts. The award was given based on a case study of Accellos customer, Minn-Tex Express of Rice, MN. Minn-Tex is running Accellos’ Prophesy DispatchSeries transportation management software (TMS). The 2012 Green Supply Chain Awards recognize companies making green, or sustainability, a core part of their supply chain strategy, and 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. The awards also recognize providers of supply chain solutions and services assisting their customers in achieving measurable sustainability goals. Submissions were judged based on the clarity and content of the goals and strategy (30 percent), the extent of the steps being taken (30 percent), the impact of the results to date and projected results (30 percent), and the form and presentation of the information submitted (10 percent). Supply & Demand Chain Executive received almost 100 entries for the 2012 Green Supply Chain Award. “We are honored to have been chosen as a recipient of the Green Supply Chain Award”, said Accellos Senior Vice President, William Ashburn. “However, at Accellos, we feel that the real kudos belong to companies like Minn-Tex, who actively choose to implement these solutions for the greater good of the transportation industry and the environment overall. They are the true ground forces in the ‘green movement’”.
