Cadec Global Receives "Lean and Green" Award From Business NH Magazine

Cadec Recognized for Its Outstanding Efforts in Helping Trucking Fleets Reduce Fuel Consumption and Emissions and Improve Mileage

MANCHESTER, NH--(Marketwire - December 8, 2009) - Cadec Global, a leading provider of advanced fleet management solutions, announced today that is has won a "Lean and Green" Award from Business NH Magazine. The awards recognize businesses whose environmental practices are a model for both sustainability and growth.

Cadec was the overall winner in the Green Products/Services category, which honors a product or service aimed at helping people and businesses reduce their impact on the environment. Cadec's advanced fleet management solutions help companies with trucking fleets reduce fuel consumption and emissions and improve mileage. Examples include:

--  Northwest Food Products Transportation (a wholly owned subsidiary of
    Land O'Lakes), which saved $500,000 in fuel costs in its first year using
    Cadec; and
--  Poland Spring, which used Cadec technology to reduce idle time in its
    Northeast fleet by 45 percent -- the emissions-reduction equivalent of
    5,200 fewer hours of driving.
    

"We were impressed by the effect Cadec is making on its customers' carbon footprint across the country," said Matthew J. Mowry, Editor of Business NH Magazine. "Cadec's solutions are a great example of how companies can reduce waste and environmental impact."

Michael Baney, CEO of Cadec, said, "Sustainability and Going Green are two huge areas of concern for our customers, and hence for Cadec. We're so pleased to have won this award, which shows that environmental concern can benefit not just our planet but also a company's bottom line."
