ORLANDO, FL – iGPS Logistics, the nation’s leading provider of innovative supply chain solutions featuring its lightweight, 100% recyclable shipping pallets, has once again been named the recipient of the “Top Green Provider” award from Food Logistics. The company has also earned a repeat mention on the Inbound Logistics “G75 Green Supply Chain Partners” list, which is limited to 75 logistics industry leaders focused on environmental sustainability.
iGPS previously earned these industry honors in 2020, and also earned the 2020 Green Supply Chain Award from Supply and Demand Chain Executive. These publications recognize transformative companies that make environmental sustainability a core component of their logistics and supply chain products and services.
This continued industry recognition is based on the merits of the state-of-the-art iGPS plastic pallet, as well as the company’s nationwide pallet pooling solution. The iGPS plastic pallet is 100% recyclable and about 35 percent lighter than wood, making it less costly to ship with fewer greenhouse emissions. The company has repurposed more than 80 tons of post-consumer plastic into pallets — plastic that may otherwise end up in landfills or the waterways.
The iGPS pallet’s strength and durability, combined with the closed-loop efficiencies of the iGPS pallet pooling model, also make iGPS a greener and more environmentally friendly option for the supply chain. In fact, numerous independent studies have verified that iGPS customers benefit from an overall decreased carbon footprint. Committed to doing its own part for the environment, the company has sponsored the planting of 100,000 trees over the next three years in partnership with the National Forest Foundation.
“We are pleased and grateful to be honored once again by Food Logistics and Inbound Logistics for our role in pioneering green logistics solutions,” said Jeff Pepperworth, President and CEO of iGPS. “As organizations and consumers place increased focus on the value of environmental sustainability, more companies within the global supply chain have recognized the immense value of the iGPS plastic pallet pooling model.”
