AFN Recognized for Applying Green Practices to Logistics
NILES, IL (PRWEB) November 14, 2012
AFN, an award-winning logistics and supply chain company, has been recognized for its sustainability practices by Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine. The publication awarded AFN a prestigious 2012 Green Supply Chain Award.
The 2012 Green Supply Chain Awards recognize companies who make sustainability a core part of their supply chain strategy, and are working to achieve measurable sustainability goals within their own operations and/or for their clients in the areas of Sourcing/Procurement, Fulfillment/Logistics, Operations, Product Lifecycle Management, and other areas of the supply chain. Over 100 submissions were received this past year.
AFN was awarded the honor based on the “green practices” it adheres to when serving clients in the retail and manufacturing industries. “In our business, customers pay us to drive out inefficiency. Inefficient practices not only cost money, but are also some of the worst environmental offenders,” said Michael Nervick, CEO of AFN. “Our unique insights come from working with hundreds of manufacturers, shippers and carriers to implement green practices that are good for the environment, good for the bottom line and won’t sacrifice on-time delivery or customer satisfaction.”
