Local Supply Chain Logistics Reduces Carbon Footprint, Saves on Costs

As Costs of Transportation Mount, the "Greening" of Third Party Logistics Saves

ELKRIDGE, MD--(Marketwire - March 17, 2008) - With prices for crude oil mounting well over $100 a barrel and governments both at home and abroad considering taxing businesses for excessive carbon emissions, businesses are paying more attention to the environmental impact of their supply chains than ever before, looking for ways to offset the carbon footprint of producing and distributing goods for sale.

"Regional third party logistics providers inherently help reduce emissions for businesses by consolidating freight and running efficient routes," said Brian Flood, President of Last Mile Logistics Group (OTCBB: LMLG). "Since we're already out on the road delivering goods to other clients in the area, using a 3PL company to outsource local transportation will reduce the carbon footprint of a business measurably. A company such as Last Mile Logistics Group, which is constantly striving to improve fuel efficiencies and the technology of our delivery fleet to decrease emissions of greenhouse gases, creates even greater savings per mile. Further, our strategy to merge regional 3PL providers into the LMLG brand will also result in reductions of greenhouse emissions by reducing the number of trucks on the road and running more efficient truck routes."

Companies looking to reduce their carbon footprint can find immediate savings by either outsourcing their delivery to a local 3PL provider, or simply reducing the number of last mile providers that they use. Flood continues, "Last Mile Logistics Group's green supply chain strategy makes us an increasingly attractive third party logistics provider for businesses taking the long-term view that moving to a greener business model saves money and consumes fewer resources in the long run, resulting in economic and environmental benefits for us and for future generations."
