MANCHESTER, NH--(Marketwire - Nov 26, 2012) - Cadec Global, which provides enterprise-class fleet management solutions, announced today that it has won a 2012 Green Supply Chain Award from Supply & Demand Chain Executive (SDCE) Magazine for helping trucking fleets run more efficiently.
The 2012 Green Supply Chain Awards recognize companies making green or sustainability a core part of their supply chain strategy, and working to achieve measurable sustainability goals within their own operations and/or supply chains. The awards also recognize providers of supply chain solutions and services assisting their customers in achieving measurable sustainability goals. More than 100 entries were received; the winners are featured in the November/December 2012 issue of Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine and at www.SDCExec.com.
Cadec provides trucking fleet management solutions that help organizations improve efficiency, including reducing fuel consumption, carbon emissions and paper use. Cadec combines an on-board computer with advanced software that helps track and reduce fuel-wasting behaviors such as speeding, sudden decelerations, excessive idling, and out-of-route driving (e.g. unauthorized stops), which in turn helps reduce carbon emissions. In addition, Cadec eliminates the need for paper in trucks by automatically tracking drivers' hours of service (no need for paper logs), enabling drivers to accept delivery signatures electronically and enabling drivers to send electronic receipts and invoices.
Examples of the impact Cadec has made on its customers' sustainability efforts include:
- A major Southwest grocery distributor was able to eliminate the use of paper entirely in its delivery processes -- with 300 trucks and 15 distribution centers across three states, that's a lot of paper saved.
- Cadec also helped that grocery distributor enforce an idling limit on trucks, which reduced total idling hours across the fleet by 90 percent.
- A well-known bottled water company cut its fleet's idling time by 41 percent -- the equivalent of taking 12 cars off the road in terms of carbon emissions.
- Cadec helped a well-known dairy company increase MPGs in its private fleet by a half-mile per gallon, saving $500,000 in fuel in the first year alone.
"Fleet management can have a tremendous impact on fleet efficiency, particularly in the areas of fuel economy, carbon emissions and paper use," said Pete Allen, Chief Executive Officer at Cadec. "Customers tell us that sustainability is among their most pressing business concerns. We're proud to be among the vendors recognized for our work in greening the industry."
