Elemica Wins 2011 SDCExec Green Supply Chain Award for Helping Clients Incorporate Sustainability Within Their Supply Chains

Solutions Automate Paper-Based Processes, Enforce Compliance & Optimize Load Planning for Reduced Energy Usage & Emissions

EXTON, PA--(Marketwire - Nov 29, 2011) - Elemica, leading provider of supply chain integration and optimization services to the chemical, tire & rubber, energy and selected manufacturing industries, recently received the 2011 Green Supply Chain Award from Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine. Elemica was chosen because of its commitment to improving the environmental performance of clients through lowered energy usage, decreased spend on fuel through optimized shipments, and reducing paper-based processes that save trees and other resources.

"Elemica enables companies to replace costly manual approaches with innovative capabilities and systems that streamline operations efficiency within logistics, order management, procurement, and sourcing," said Mike McGuigan, CEO of Elemica. "We are honored to be selected for this prestigious award, and we remain committed to helping companies identify savings through innovation while at the same time incorporating sustainability in their supply chains."

Since 2004, Elemica has delivered approximately 200 million messages, equating to savings of 2,000 cubic meters of landfill space, 22,000,000 liters of water used in paper production, 21,500 trees, and 245,000 kilograms of CO2 emissions.

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. For example, one client implemented Elemica's SmartLink™ and QuickLink™ supply chain solutions that allowed them to reduce CO2 emissions around 3% per ton of product and total waste down 11% per ton of production.

The 2011 Green Supply Chain Awards recognize providers of supply chain solutions and services that are assisting their customers in achieving measurable sustainability goals. Submissions for the 2011 Green Supply Chain Awards were judged based on the clarity and content of the goals and strategy (30%), the extent of the steps being taken (30%), the impact of the results to date and projected results (30%), and the form and presentation of the information submitted (10%). The winners appear in the Nov/Dec issue of Supply & Demand Chain Executive.
