SALT LAKE CITY, June 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- C.R. England – Global Transportation was recognized as one of Food Logistics' 2012 Top Green Providers. Food Logistics is the only publication dedicated exclusively to the food and beverage supply chain.
"We are honored to receive this recognition," said Allen Nielsen, Director of Fuel, C.R. England. "We have continually worked to find and implement sustainable transportation solutions. During the past year, we saw great improvement in fuel consumption as a result of our various driver programs as well as implemented five liquid natural gas tractors into our fleet."
The Top Green Providers list was created to recognize companies in the food and beverage sector that have embraced sustainability practices as central to their operations. In turn, they play a key role in their customers' own sustainability efforts while simultaneously helping to advance awareness throughout the supply chain community.
"The response to our Top Green Providers list this year was overwhelming. Despite a difficult business climate, the companies on this year's list have proven that making a commitment to sustainability in their operations not only delivers a measurable return on investment, but gives them a competitive advantage in the marketplace and in the eyes of their customers," explained Lara L. Sowinski, editor-in-chief at Food Logistics. "Sustainability in the supply chain continues to evolve as more companies recognize the necessity for environmental conservation, while new technologies are making it easier to adopt and quantify sustainable practices."
