Hyster Company was recently selected by Inbound Logistics as one of 75 Green Supply Chain Partners leading the way in sustainability and logistics. The company was featured in the group as part of a recent issue.
“The market has been working to continually reduce emissions, not only to meet regulatory demands, but also in response to market needs. We strive to have our trucks meet and exceed application expectations, including environmental impact,” said Jonathan Dawley, President of Hyster Company Distribution. “Likewise, we are also building products that run on alternative fuels, making our trucks tough and intelligent at the same time. That’s a great combination for our customers and the environment.”
Inbound Logistics chooses these 75 supply chain partners after considering the company’s participation in public-private partnerships, corporate sustainability initiatives and collaborative customer-driven projects. Editors from this publication pick each partner
