Supply Chain Design Emphasizing Environmental Performance Leads to Savings

MANASSAS, VA--(Marketwire - Nov 12, 2012) - INSIGHT, Inc., a top international provider of supply chain planning solutions for the world's foremost companies, is proud to announce winning for the 3rd consecutive year a Green Supply Chain Award from Supply & Demand Chain Executive. INSIGHT was chosen for helping clients re-evaluate their supply chain networks -- from purchasing, through manufacturing, to shipping and distributing final products -- with an emphasis on environmental performance.

"Our customers integrate sustainability into their decision-making processes and what-if analysis to reduce the environmental impact on their supply chains," said Dr. Jeff Karrenbauer, president of INSIGHT, Inc. "Green initiatives within the supply chain should include developing a strategic plan, optimizing the design and execution of the entire network, establishing strategic sourcing alternatives, developing risk mitigation plans and implementing sound S&OP practices, all in light of the impacts on profit, energy consumption and carbon emissions. We are very pleased to once again receive this prestigious award."

INSIGHT helps companies "green" their supply chain networks by:

  • Studying the environmental impact of supply chain processes in an organization
  • Creating strategic transportation plans that use optimum shipping methods and lower fuel consumption
  • Optimizing byproducts by recycling or re-using them to lower waste disposal
  • Modeling alternative designs of facilities, production lines, etc., to reduce size of footprint
  • And much more
