CHEP USA, Orlando, Fla., is being recognized for supplying pallets that help the environment.

For the third consecutive year, Inbound Logistics has named CHEP one of its Top Green Supply Chain Partners. The publication’s G75 list honors companies for their measurable and documented investment in green technologies, processes and systems, according to a news release.

The list has industry analysts identifying companies they consider environmentally friendly.

The citation states how shippers using CHEP’s pallet pooling system “are achieving measurable gains reducing their environmental footprint. For example, based on third-party lifecycle inventory analysis findings, Eclipse Berry Farms has reduced solid waste generation by more than 33,000 pounds annually, decreasing greenhouse gas emissions by about 25,000 pounds, and saving enough energy to power 20 homes with electricity.”

In the release, Candice Herndon, CHEP Americas’ director of environment and regulatory affairs, said CHEP continually reviews its and its partners’ operations to discover opportunities to help the environment. She said CHEP is honored to join many great companies in the publication’s list of leading supply chain partners.

CHEP was named one of the Top 25 Green Supply Chain industry partners in 2009, Inbound Logistics’ first year in the ranking, and hit the Top 50 Green Supply Chain industry partners in last year’s listing.

The award was published in the publication’s June issue.
