HOUSTON, Nov. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Satellite Logistics Group (SLG), a leading supply-chain solution provider for the beverage industry, has earned the 2014 Green Supply Chain Award from Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine for providing supply chain solutions that help its customers to realize their sustainable supply chain goals.
The annual Green Supply Chain Awards recognize companies that are making sustainability a core part of their supply chain strategy and working to achieve measurable sustainability goals within their own operations or assisting their customers to achieve measurable sustainability goals.
SLG was selected from nearly 200 nominees in recognition of the company's efforts to help brewers maximize their use of stainless steel kegs. Stainless steel kegs have an average life cycle of 30 years and are 100% recyclable, making them a more environmentally favorable packaging option over plastic. To minimize their environmental impact, it is important to control the number of kegs in circulation. The award recognizes companies whose product, service, or exemplary leadership is enhancing sustainability within the food and beverage industry. SLG's innovative Kegspediter® keg management solution leverages proprietary software and the company's network of more than 1,600 distributors, along with supply chain nodes across the country, to return kegs more efficiently. Reducing cycle time allows a brewery to service its distribution market with fewer kegs.
SLG also provides an eco-friendly option for keg management and beverage disposal services. When beverage companies have out-of-date, damaged or recalled product, they need to dispose of it in an environmentally friendly manner that complies with EPA requirements. To address this challenge, SLG created its EcoBev® service, the only turnkey nationwide green solution for beverage disposal.
"We're honored to be recognized for our creative, green supply chain solutions," said Kevin Brady, SLG president and CEO. "At SLG, solution development is guided by our consistent commitment to enable our customers to meet their business goals, including sustainability. As we help our customers to address their supply chain challenges, we continually strive to reduce their environmental footprint as well."
