INSIGHT Wins Green Supply Chain Award

Global CPG Client Saves 14,000 Tons of CO2 Annually

MANASSAS, VA--(Marketwired - Nov 13, 2014) - INSIGHT, Inc., top international provider of planning solutions that power supply chain design for the world's foremost companies, announces winning the 2014 Green Supply Chain Award from Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine. This is INSIGHT's 3rd consecutive win of this prestigious award honoring the companies who enforce green practices as a core function of their operations. INSIGHT was chosen for its supply chain network design project with a global juice producer that reduced carbon emissions, lowered operating costs, and improved efficiencies.

"INSIGHT is pleased to once again win this prestigious award from Supply & Demand Chain Executive for our work to help clients create a positive environmental impact by reducing wastes and energy usage throughout their entire supply chain," said Dr. Jeff Karrenbauer, president and co-founder of INSIGHT, Inc. "In today's competitive environment, our clients' global supply chains are more complex, requiring them to constantly analyze their supply chain networks to increase operational efficiencies, lower costs, and improve customer service."

The global CPG utilized INSIGHT's SAILS for supply chain network design to determine the best location for new manufacturing and distribution centers, as well which customers would be serviced by these new facilities, while reducing delivery mileage and lowering carbon emissions. The selected design reduced the miles for delivery by 4.5 million miles, resulting in a savings of 14,000 tons of carbon dioxide per year. The company also saved 10 percent of shipping costs by combining and reducing the number of shipments and distance travelled.

The 2014 Green Supply Chain Awards recognize companies making green or sustainability a core part of their supply chain strategy and are working to achieve measurable sustainability goals within their own operations and/or supply chains in the areas of Sourcing/Procurement, Fulfillment/Logistics, Operations, Product Lifecycle Management, and other areas of the supply chain. The awards also recognize providers of supply chain solutions and services assisting their customers in achieving measurable sustainability goals.
