PECO Pallet, Inc. was recently named a Green 75 Supply Chain Partner by Inbound Logistics magazine. The company will be profiled in the special “Lean and Green” June issue as one of the top 75 companies in supply chain sustainability. As a North American leader in pallet pooling, PECO Pallet provides a more sustainable shipping platform for grocery and consumer goods manufacturers throughout the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. PECO’s sturdy wood block pallets are built from responsibly forested timber and are constantly reused, repaired, and recycled. Shippers who utilize PECO’s pooled pallets can eliminate the waste, inefficiency, and safety problems associated with single-use stringer pallets.
Adrian Potgieter, PECO Pallet’s Senior Vice President of Sales, said, “Sustainability is nothing new at PECO Pallet – our entire company was founded on the basic principle of reusing pallets to reduce waste. We sincerely appreciate the recognition from Inbound Logistics and hope that other companies who want to ‘go green’ will think about switching to ‘red’ as a way of reducing their own carbon footprint.”
This is PECO Pallet’s second year winning the recognition as a G75 Supply Chain Partner. Inbound Logistics’ methodology for selecting 75 Green Supply Chain Partners (G75) considers a company’s involvement in three areas: participation in public-private partnerships, corporate sustainability initiatives, and collaborative customer-driven projects. The editors base their choices on measurable green results, sustainability innovation, continuous improvement, and industry recognition. As Editor Felecia Stratton explained, “The 2013 [G75] honorees are truly ‘walking the walk’ when it comes to commitment to supply chain sustainability.”
