July 1, 2014 (Irvington, NY): PECO Pallet, Inc. was recently awarded two sustainability awards by leading industry publications. PECO was named a “Top Green Provider” by Food Logistics magazine, which recognizes companies who are enhancing sustainability within the food and beverage industry. PECO was also honored by the editors of Inbound Logistics as a 2014 Green Supply Chain (G75) partner, in recognition of the company’s sustainable supply chain, logistics, and transportation practices. PECO Pallet is profiled in the June issues of both publications.
As the North American leader in pallet rental services, PECO Pallet provides high-quality wood pallets for grocery and consumer goods manufacturers throughout the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. PECO’s sturdy block pallets are built from responsibly forested timber and are constantly reused, repaired, and recycled. Companies who utilize PECO’s pooled pallets can eliminate the waste, inefficiency, and safety problems associated with single-use pallets.
Adrian Potgieter, PECO Pallet’s Senior Vice President of Sales, said, “Environmental sustainability is at the very core of our company. PECO was built on the basic idea of reusing pallets to reduce waste, and we are proud of this double recognition from both Food Logistics and Inbound Logistics. We encourage companies who want to ‘go green’ to think about switching to ‘red’ as a more sustainable shipping solution.”
The Food Logistics Top Green Providers list focuses on sustainability in the global food supply chain with profiles of companies who are exceeding industry standards in their sector. This year’s list includes food producers and manufacturers, 3PLs and transportation and logistics providers, equipment manufacturers, and others whose products and services are driving sustainability from farm to fork.
Inbound Logistics’ G75 Green Supply Chain Partners highlights sustainability leaders in the logistics and transportation sector. The selection process evaluates companies in three areas: participation in public-private partnerships; corporate sustainability initiatives; and collaborative customer-driven projects. Within this context, four benchmarks carry weight in IL’s decision-making: measurable green results, sustainability innovation, continuous improvement, and industry recognition.
