LAKEWOOD, NJ--(Marketwired - Jun 24, 2016) - UNEX Manufacturing, Inc., the trusted industry leader in providing innovative order picking solutions, announces the company has been named to Food Logistics Top 100 Green Supply Chain Provider Awards for 2016. Food Logistics is the only publication exclusively dedicated to covering the movement of product through the global food supply chain. UNEX was chosen for helping retailers, manufacturers and distributors invoke green warehouse processes by reducing energy usage and improving energy efficiency.
"UNEX solutions are far more energy efficient than most automated material handling systems, so our customers save a tremendous amount of energy," said Brian C. Neuwirth, VP of Sales and Marketing at UNEX Manufacturing. "We are pleased to be recognized for helping clients implement green practices like reducing energy usage and lowering transport emissions."
"The 2016 Top Green Providers reached a new record high for applicants and recipients, confirming the importance of sustainability in the global food and beverage supply chain," says Lara L. Sowinski, editorial director, supply chain network, at AC Business Media. "Our industry's continued focus on environmental stewardship and the role that growers, manufacturers, logistics companies, retailers and others play is driving heightened awareness and actions aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions while simultaneously boosting cost and energy efficiencies."
UNEX material handling products do not require any energy to use them. The gravity-powered conveyor moves products smoothly and quickly without being motorized. UNEX Span-Track can be used to condense storage in freezer and cooler areas, which means less energy is consumed in these areas, which typically use tons of energy. The UNEX Flow Cell is 100% recyclable and can be used to boost productivity, improve ergonomics, eliminate waste and maximize space in the warehouse.
Food Logistics' annual Top Green Providers list recognizes companies whose products, services, or exemplary leadership is enhancing sustainability within the food and beverage industry. The list offers logistics professionals a guide to the providers, manufacturers, and software and technology companies that have found new ways to promote sustainability throughout their operations and those of their customers.
