Elemica Named Top Green Provider by Food Logistics Magazine

Clients Meet Sustainability Goals by Automating Paper-Driven Processes

WAYNE, PA--(Marketwired - Jun 25, 2015) - Elemica, the leading Supply Chain Operating Network provider for the process industries, announces being chosen for the Food Logistics' 2015 Top Green Providers Award, which offers logistics professionals a guide to the providers, manufacturers, and software and technology companies that have found new ways to promote sustainability throughout their operations and those of their customers. Elemica was chosen for automating all inbound and outbound invoices for a large global chemical company with its Electronic Invoicing solution. The result is over one million paper-based invoices now being processed electronically on an annual basis. Elemica's solution also saves this information electronically, removing the related paper based archiving and storage requirements used before the solution was implemented.

"Eliminating paper-driven processes saves trees, lessens greenhouse gas emissions, and lowers water and energy usage," said Cindi Hane, Vice President of Logistics Product Management at Elemica. "Automating order management, inventory, invoice, and logistics business processes streamline operations, boost efficiencies, and drive sustainable practices. We are especially proud to be recognized for our efforts in helping our clients become greener."

Elemica helps its food and beverage ingredient clients collaborate with their trading partners to procure, sell, and distribute their products more efficiently and more reliably. Automating paper-based processes allows Elemica customers to realize savings within their operations while meeting their sustainability goals. By utilizing Elemica's integrated cloud-based logistics and transportation products, customers have lowered their carbon footprint and energy usage by optimizing shipments and loads. Shippers and carriers can collaborate on shipments to find capacity, avoid disruptions and penalties, and optimize loading/unloading times, which saves on fuel and lowers emissions.

The Food Logistics Top Green Providers Award recognizes companies whose products, services, or exemplary leadership is enhancing sustainability within the food and beverage industry. With a focus on sustainability in the global food supply chain, Food Logistics profiles companies who are exceeding industry standards in their sector. This year's list includes food producers and manufacturers, 3PLs, transportation and logistics providers, equipment manufacturers and others whose products and services are driving sustainability from farm to fork.
