Chicago, IL – June 15, 2017 – ArrowStream, Inc. (ArrowStream), a supply chain innovator that combines proven expertise with data science and analytics to improve the way supply chains perform, today announced that Food Logistics, the only publication exclusively dedicated to covering the movement of product through the global food supply chain, has named the company to its Top Green Providers list for 2017.
Food Logistics’ annual Top Green Providers recognizes companies whose products, services, or exemplary leadership is enhancing sustainability within the food and beverage industry. Each year, the criteria for earning a spot on the list become more stringent for applicants. For example, the editorial staff evaluates a company’s participation in such programs as the EPA’s SmartWay and other recognized sustainability programs; facilities that are LEED-certified, and/or feature solar panels, LED lighting and other energy saving installations and retrofits that produce measure reductions in GHG emissions, to name a few.
“The future viability of the world’s food supply chain is dependent upon our ability to integrate sustainability from farm to fork,” says Lara L. Sowinski, editorial director. “Transportation and logistics comprise a significant part of that supply chain, and we commend those companies in our industry that embrace their role as environmental stewards, while raising the sustainability bar for their peers.”
One of ArrowStream’s flagship products, Crossbow, creates a more efficient, target-driven inbound supply chain for foodservice distributors, delivering greater sustainability and advanced savings strategies. By aligning daily purchasing and logistics decision-making, Crossbow reveals freight consolidation opportunities that were previously inaccessible, ultimately reducing inbound transportation miles and costs.
“Making a positive impact to both the bottom line and the environment with our software solutions is critical to product development efforts at ArrowStream,” said Bill Michalski, Chief Solutions Officer at ArrowStream. “We are thrilled to be named as a Top Green Provider for the 6th consecutive year and thank Food Logistics for recognizing us yet again as being a partner that contributes to a more sustainable food supply chain.”
