Columbus, Ohio- FST Logistics, Inc. was named as a recipient of the Green Supply Chain Award by Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine today. This award recognizes companies making green or sustainability a core part of their supply chain strategy and are working to achieve measurable sustainability goals within their own operations and supply chains.
For over a decade, FST Logistics has made a corporate commitment to furthering sustainability in the supply chain. As a provider of both temperature-controlled warehousing and transportation solutions, reducing the carbon footprint and overall environmental impact these operations have on the planet remains central to the company’s mission.
“It is important for us to identify sustainable ways to operate as a company,” said Matt Hartman, president and chief executive officer of FST Logistics. “We not only want to provide the best-in-class services we can for our customers, but we want to do so in an eco-friendly way. Whether that is through the use of our fleet that runs on compressed natural gas or using a quick charge system with our battery-operated forklifts, initiatives like these add up over time to create a greener operation.”
FST Logistics remains committed to finding innovative measures to further reduce the company’s impact on the environment. The company employs a variety of tactics to ensure that both the warehousing and transportation services offered for customers are as green as possible.
