INSIGHT Offers Supply Chain Network Design With Optimal Energy Usage

MANASSAS, VA--(Marketwired - Jun 29, 2015) -  INSIGHT, Inc., top international provider of planning solutions that power supply chain design for the world's foremost companies, announces winning a 2015 Top Green Provider Award from Food Logistics magazine for the third year in a row. These prestigious awards honor transportation providers, 3PLs, cold storage providers, technology companies, pallet manufacturers and others key to supporting a more sustainable global food supply chain. INSIGHT was chosen for helping companies lower their carbon emissions and energy usage through optimal supply chain networks. INSIGHT helps customers uncover value and boost sustainability within their global supply chain operations.

"Environmental responsibility is no longer just a regulatory burden; it has become a driver of business value that includes efficiency gains, waste reduction, risk avoidance, new product opportunities, and cost control," said Dr. Jeffrey Karrenbauer, president and co-founder of INSIGHT, Inc. "INSIGHT is especially honored to win this prestigious award for the past three years. Our clients benefit from strategic supply chain planning that helps them meet green supply chain goals by implementing green initiatives such as identifying opportunities for shipment consolidation and specific network design strategies that minimize energy and carbon usage."

"In the food and beverage sector, sustainability and environmental stewardship are primary considerations given the unique relationship between businesses in this sector and our planet's natural resources," explained Lara L. Sowinski, editor-in-chief for Food Logistics. "Our 2015 list of Top Green Providers includes agricultural companies, 3PLs, temperature-controlled facilities and others who demonstrate leadership in sustainability, which in turn positively affects their customers as well."

INSIGHT's flagship supply chain design software solution, SAILS, enables executives to achieve millions of dollars in savings by consistently improving the supply chain in accord with the changing dynamics of global trade, merger or acquisition, customer expectations, facilities issues, or tough corporate profitability goals. INSIGHT SCOREKEEPER allows simulation of complete supply chain operations, including procurement, manufacturing, and finished goods distribution at a daily level of detail. Most recently, INSIGHT introduced the SAILS Data Visualization Module, which distills the essence of large, complex strategic supply chains into just a few tables that make it easy to display maps, graphical results or hierarchical relationships. The powerful visualization module enables both analysts and executives to probe complex questions more quickly and intuitively.
