Nationwide Plastic Pallet Leader Announces Honor for Two Team Members
ORLANDO, FL – iGPS Logistics, the nation’s leading provider of plastic pooling solutions featuring its lightweight, 100% recyclable shipping pallets, has announced that Cynthia Martinez-Patin, Director of Human Resources, and Yvonne Fu, Systems Manager, have both been named to Supply and Demand Chain Executive’s list of Top Women in the Supply Chain. This is the second consecutive year in which two iGPS employees have received this annual award, which is given to deserving women whose accomplishments set a positive example for women throughout the global supply chain network.
As the company’s HR leader and a member of the Executive Leadership Team, Cynthia Martinez-Patin has contributed to the organization’s doubling in size over the past two years. Along with the other members of the Leadership Team, she was named a SDCE “Team Pros to Know” award winner in 2021, in recognition of her and the organization’s efforts to retain and engage staff, maintain health and safety, and keep essential services moving during the pandemic. Yvonne Fu originally joined the iGPS in 2010, serving as an analyst, and then worked in the healthcare technology industry before rejoining the company in 2016. Fu and her team manage the organization’s IT infrastructure, including networking and cybersecurity. Fu is also, with her husband, the co-founder of the Jasky Foundation, a nonprofit that provides help for community residents in need.
“On behalf of the entire team here at iGPS, I am proud to congratulate Cynthia and Yvonne along with their fellow deserving honorees,” said Jeff Pepperworth, president and CEO of iGPS Logistics. “It is our privilege to work alongside so many role models for the next generation of women in the supply chain industry.”
About iGPS Logistics:
iGPS Logistics is North America’s only pooler of 48” x 40” CBA-spec plastic shipping pallets. iGPS pallets generate measurable savings in transport expense, reduced product damage, and other operational efficiencies. iGPS’ platform is a major advance in supply chain hygiene — a platform that can easily be cleaned. It will not absorb fluids that can lead to contamination and never requires treatment with toxic pesticides or fungicides.
Measuring at 48” x 40”, iGPS’ platform enables larger load patterns and is ideally suited for automated environments. And it puts an end to broken boards and protruding nails that can damage equipment, endanger workers, jam production lines and litter workplaces. An independent life cycle analysis has documented that iGPS’ solution is better for the environment than both one-way and multiuse wood pallets. iGPS has been named a “Top Green Provider” by Food Logistics, a “Top Green Supply Chain Partner” by Inbound Logistics, and is also a recipient of the Supply and Demand Chain Executive SDCE 100 Award.
