Automation of Manual Processes Saves Paper and Other Resources

WAYNE, PA--(Marketwired - Jun 24, 2016) - Elemica, the leading Supply Chain Operating Network for the process industries, announces that the company has been named a Top Green Provider by Food Logistics magazine. This annual list profiles companies who exceed industry standards in their sector and focus on sustainability in the global food supply chain. Elemica helps food and beverage ingredient customers improve and achieve their measurable sustainability goals through the automation of manual processes that reduce their usage of paper, which saves trees and other resources.

"Applying sustainable practices in the agriculture, transportation, warehousing and retailing sectors is critical in addressing the environmental and business demands of the 21st century, particularly for our industry."

Automating business processes for sourcing, procurement, order management, inventory, and logistics streamlines operations and boosts efficiencies. Electronic purchasing and sourcing, transportation optimization, and shipment visibility are many of the green solutions that Elemica provides to help customers lower costs while driving sustainability. 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.

This year's Top Green Providers list includes grocers, 3PLs, cold storage providers, pallet and packaging manufacturers, software and technology companies and others whose products and services are elevating sustainability to a 'competitive advantage' in our industry.
