MANASSAS, VA--(Marketwired - Jun 25, 2013) - INSIGHT, Inc., top international provider of planning solutions that power supply chain design for the world's foremost companies, announces winning a 2013 Food Logistics Top Green Provider Award from Food Logistics Magazine. INSIGHT was chosen because its supply chain planning strategies and solutions help clients uncover value and boost sustainability within their supply chain operations. INSIGHT customers typically try to find the most efficient supply chain design, which directly contributes to decreased energy consumption and carbon emissions.
"Strategic supply chain planning helps INSIGHT customers to develop green initiatives, optimize transportation networks, lower energy costs, and more," said Dr. Jeffrey Karrenbauer, president and co-founder of INSIGHT, Inc. "INSIGHT's software enables our clients to identify the cost, energy or carbon minimal supply chain strategies. Alternatively, they can choose to find the comprehensive supply chain strategy that maximizes profits while simultaneously accounting for environmental restrictions such as by-product utilization or disposal, carbon emission targets, and so on."
This year's Top Green Providers list is significantly larger than 2012's list, which is an indication of just how important sustainability has become to supply chains today. Each of the companies profiled submitted a comprehensive application detailing their own operations as well as the products and services they offer to customers.
