ORLANDO, FL – iGPS Logistics, the nation’s leading provider of innovative supply chain solutions featuring its lightweight, recyclable shipping pallets, has again been named the recipient Inbound Logistics “G75 Green Supply Chain Partners” list. The award is limited to 75 supply chain industry leaders focused on environmental sustainability.
This industry recognition is based on the exceptional features and benefits of the iGPS plastic pallet, as well as the company’s environmentally friendly pallet pooling ecosystem. The iGPS pallet is 100% recyclable and about 35 percent lighter than comparable wood-block pallets, making it less costly to ship with fewer greenhouse emissions.
An independent lifecycle assessment has confirmed that the iGPS pallet is more durable and has a lower impact on the environment than wood. These benefits, along with the efficiencies of the iGPS pallet pooling model — which keeps millions of truck miles off the nation’s roadways every year —make iGPS a greener and more sustainable option.
“Over the past several years, we have been grateful to be recognized by Inbound Logistics for iGPS’s leadership role in supply chain sustainability,” said Jeff Pepperworth, President and CEO of iGPS. “Once again, the industry is acknowledging the importance of creating a cleaner and greener supply chain — to the benefit of businesses, customers, and the planet.”
