ORLANDO, Fla., Dec. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — iGPS Logistics, the nation’s leading provider of innovative supply chain solutions featuring its lightweight, 100% recyclable shipping pallets, is the recipient of two new industry awards. The company has won the Food Logistics FL100+ Award for excellence in technological innovation, and the Supply and Demand Chain Executive (SDCE) 2020 Green Supply Chain Award, which recognizes companies that make environmental sustainability a part of their supply chain strategy.
These awards come at the end of a challenging year, marked by rapid shifts in consumer behaviors and demand due to the global pandemic. iGPS and its clients have worked tirelessly — and successfully — to adapt and evolve in response to industry changes.
The FL100+ Award honors leading technology providers that contribute to an efficient and reliable global food and beverage supply chain. iGPS was recognized for its state-of-the-art pallet pooling solutions, which help streamline and automate its customers’ supply chains while affording them unparalleled visibility into their nationwide operations.
SDCE’s annual Green Supply Chain Awards recognize companies that make sustainability and “green” efforts a central component of their supply chain strategy. The innovative iGPS pallet is 100% recyclable, and its lighter weight contributes to reduced greenhouse emissions during shipping. It is also easier to clean and sanitize than traditional wood-block pallets. Numerous independent studies have verified that iGPS customers benefit from an overall decreased carbon footprint.
“We are thrilled and grateful to be honored by Food Logistics and Supply and Demand Chain Executive,” said iGPS Logistics President and CEO Jeff Pepperworth. “More and more companies are recognizing the considerable value of the iGPS plastic pallet pooling model. I greatly appreciate the efforts of our team members, our partners, and our valued customers as we navigate these uncertain times and look forward to emerging even stronger in 2021.”
