ORLANDO, FL — June 17, 2020 — iGPS Logistics, the nation’s leading provider of innovative supply chain solutions featuring its lightweight, 100% recyclable shipping pallets, is the proud recipient of two new awards. iGPS has been named a Food Logistics “Top Green Provider” for 2020, in recognition of the company’s environmental sustainability successes. iGPS has also received Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s “SDCE 100” award, which shines the spotlight on the industry’s top supply chain successes. Both of these honors were announced in the publications’ June issues.
These accolades come at the midway point of a year during which iGPS has enjoyed record business growth. The company’s market-leading plastic pallets are used by major manufacturers and retailers in industries that include food and beverage, paper goods, and pharmaceuticals.
Food Logistics’ annual Top Green Providers list recognizes companies whose solutions and leadership are enhancing sustainability within the food and beverage industry. The iGPS plastic pallet, which is 100 percent recyclable, is a real-world example of true “cradle-to-cradle” sustainability. In addition, because iGPS pallets are 35 percent lighter than wood block alternatives, considerably less fuel is used and fewer emissions are produced during their transport. iGPS won in two categories — “Pallets, Packaging, & Containers” and “Reclamation & Recycling Program.”
The SDCE 100 award highlights specific projects and innovations that deliver value to enterprises across a wide range of supply chain functions. iGPS was honored for its partnership with a major beverage client that annually ships millions of pallets to retailers nationwide. The client’s use of iGPS pooled plastic pallets has made significant positive contributions to the company’s safety, efficiency, and sustainability goals.
“We’re grateful to the judges and editors at Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive for their recognition, and to the valued clients who make these efforts possible,” said iGPS Logistics President and CEO Jeff Pepperworth. “We look forward to continuing to deliver solutions that lead the way in supply chain sustainability and innovation.”
