INSIGHT Named as 2012 Food Logistics Top Green Supply Chain Provider

Supply Chain Sustainability Is Cornerstone of Winning Companies

MANASSAS, VA--(Marketwire - Jul 19, 2012) - INSIGHT, Inc., a top international provider of supply chain planning solutions for the world's foremost companies, announces being named by Food Logistics magazine as one of twenty Top Green Providers for 2012. INSIGHT was chosen because its software can take a comprehensive look at a supply chain and create a plan that minimizes energy usage, lowers carbon emissions, and incorporates waste reclamation. INSIGHT was also named in 2011, the year the award was established.

"INSIGHT is once again proud to be honored for our ability to help both the environment and our customer's bottom lines," said Jeff Karrenbauer, president of INSIGHT, Inc. "We are pleased to help our clients respond to demands from customers, investors and regulators to identify and implement superior sustainability practices, while simultaneously enhancing profitability."

"Sustainability in the supply chain continues to evolve as more companies recognize the necessity for environmental conservation, while new technologies are making it easier to adopt and quantify sustainable practices," explained Lara L. Sowinski, editor-in-chief at Food Logistics. "The response to our Top Green Providers list this year was overwhelming. Despite a difficult business climate, INSIGHT has proven that making a commitment to sustainability in operations not only delivers a measurable return on investment, but gives them a competitive advantage in the marketplace and in the eyes of its customers."

INSIGHT helps companies "green" their supply chains by creating a strategic supply chain plan that considers such factors as energy usage, carbon emissions and limits, by-products of manufacturing processes and alternative transportation strategies. Companies can go a long way to lower fuel usage and emissions by implementing aggressive shipment planning and consolidation solutions such as those identified by the Insight Transportation Optimizer.

The Top Green Providers list recognizes food and beverage sector companies that embrace sustainability practices as central to their operations by playing a key role in their customers' own sustainability efforts while simultaneously helping to advance awareness throughout the supply chain community. INSIGHT was profiled in the June 2012 issue of Food Logistics, as well as online at
