U.S. Xpress Named As A Top Green Provider By Food Logistics Magazine
CHATTANOOGA, TN. – June 15, 2012-- U.S. Xpress Enterprises, a leading provider of transportation services throughout North America, is proud to announce that the company has been chosen by Food Logistics magazine to be part of the Top Green Providers list for 2012.
As a publication dedicated to coverage of the food and beverage supply chain, Food Logistics created the Top Green Providers list to recognize companies in the food and beverage sector that have embraced sustainability practices as central to their operations. In developing the list, Food Logistics has also focused on the key role the honored recipients play in their customers’ own sustainability efforts while simultaneously helping to advance awareness throughout the supply chain community.
“Sustainability in the supply chain continues to evolve as more companies recognize the necessity for environmental conservation, while new technologies are making it easier to adopt and quantify sustainable practices,” explained Lara L. Sowinski, editor-in-chief at Food Logistics. “The response to our Top Green Providers list this year was overwhelming. Despite a difficult business climate, the companies on this year’s list have proven that making a commitment to sustainability in their operations not only delivers a measurable return on investment, but gives them a competitive advantage in the marketplace and in the eyes of their customers.”
“As we have worked to expand our footprint in the food and beverage sector over the past year with the addition of refrigerated services, U.S. Xpress has been focused on bringing the same commitment to conservation and sustainability that has been a core value of our company since its founding more than two decades ago,” said John White, U.S. Xpress Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “U.S. Xpress is truly honored by earning a position on the Top Green Providers list. We would like to thank Food Logistics for providing this valued recognition, and we would also like to congratulate the other honorees on this year’s Top Green Providers list.”
