AFN Named to Food Logistics’ Top Green Providers List for Seventh Consecutive Year
AFN is proud to announce that we have been named to the Food Logistics’ Top Green Providers list for the seventh consecutive year. This honor was presented in recognition of a unique, holistic supply chain solution created for our client, a third generation family-owned and operated fresh and frozen products company.
Prior to AFN’s solution, our client was experiencing a variety of challenges with their incumbent carrier base, including missed pick-ups and deliveries, lack of visibility to shipments in transit, and loads being refused by the consignee due to temperature control issues. These inefficiencies presented an opportunity for a more cost-effective and sustainable solution.
Our solution proposed shipment consolidation to create efficiencies and reduce costs, and the implementation of standardized temperature gauges to maintain the integrity of the client’s cold chain. Once the solution was implemented and had run over an eight month period, our client saw a significant reduction in total miles travelled and number of trucks on the road, a smaller CO2 footprint, and a decreased amount of loads refused at the consignee.
Mileage savings and CO2 emission reductions were measured by comparing the number of miles driven and trucks utilized prior to the implementation of AFN’s consolidation program versus after the solution had run for the eight month period. Ultimately, AFN helped the client to realize CO2 emission savings of 51.15 tons and reduced mileage by 41.69% (24,318 miles).AFN named to @FoodLogistics Top Green Providers list for seventh year running! #sustainability Click To Tweet
