December 09, 2020 (Austin, TX) — Shipwell, whose connected, cloud-based platform has revolutionized the shipping industry, has been awarded Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s Green Supply Chain Award.
The award is given to companies that have significantly improved supply chains so they are more eco-friendly, particularly through reusing or recycling items throughout operations. Recipients must show that their solutions improve both the environment and customers’ bottom line.
The Shipwell solution digitally transforms supply chains by combining industry-leading transportation management, real-time visibility and an integrated partner network. It seamlessly scales as businesses grow and improves the customer experience. As part of its commitment to conserve resources, Shipwell helped the world’s largest meal-kit company consolidate loads, optimize routes, improve on-time delivery and automate workflows.
Since onboarding with Shipwell, the company has saved approximately 1.7 million land miles, the equivalent of 245,000 gallons of gasoline, 5.6 million pounds of CO2 emissions, or 24 trans-Atlantic flights of CO2 emissions. In addition, the customer saw a 75% ROI increase — compared to an anticipated ROI of 30% — through a decrease in spoilage, lower transportation rates and loss of goods sold. The reduction in emissions, paired with Shipwell’s data analytics and tracking data, allowed the company to become EPA-SmartWay certified.
“We’re incredibly honored to have been recognized for our efforts to make the shipping industry more green,” said Shipwell’s President and Cofounder, Jason Traff. “Our platform has given customers full control over their logistics operation and enabled them to realize significant efficiencies, so that they not only save money, they reduce their carbon footprint.”
