“Going Green” is no longer just a catchy slogan for a pie-in-the-sky ideal of taking environmentally safe actions, for many businesses, and specifically supply chains, it offers a chance to meet strategic initiatives. While “green” was originally meant to signify Earth friendly decisions, the platforms and implementations that promote a sustainable supply chain have revealed another type of green, the type that looks good on your bottom line. Managing sustainability has become a major priority for CEO’s across all industries. Aligning sustainable efforts with organizational goals is increasing cost savings and efficiencies, all while helping the environment.
A recent article from Inbound Logistics details how and why companies are moving toward sustainability in every facet of the supply chain. Barrett Distribution Centers has a facility in Montebello, CA that handles high volume retail, e-commerce, omni-channel logistics, and value-added warehousing services.
