The Green Supply Chain Award recognizes companies that are making green or sustainability a core part of their supply chain strategy and working to achieve measurable sustainability goals within their own operations and supply chains. The award also recognizes providers of supply chain solutions and services that are assisting their customers in achieving measurable sustainability goals. Fleet Advantage was selected for its turnkey asset management solution and its proprietary ATLAAS software (Advanced Truck Lifecycle Administrative Analytics Software), which allows for organizations in the supply chain to leverage data analytics with the goal of lowering environmental impact and TCO (total cost of ownership).
The transportation sector of the supply chain increasingly relies on new technologies to do more with less, improve efficiencies and cut costs out of their operations. Fleet Advantage strives to help supply chain organizations with private fleets leverage data analytics, asset management and flexible financing to identify and act upon vehicle obsolescence and sustainably, drive down costs and increase productivity.
Fleet Advantage’s flexible finance program encourages continuous replacement of older equipment, with the aim of ensuring technology improvements in fuel efficiencies, which reduce millions of metric tons of CO2 and NOx particulate matter. Fleet Advantage also promotes sustainability through optimizing vehicle specification to be more fuel efficient and to align with the duty cycle as well as geographical locale.
“At Fleet Advantage, we commit ourselves to doing our part in sustainable and green supply chain strategies, reducing emissions by facilitating new equipment leases through our flexible financing program,” Brian Holland, president and CFO at Fleet Advantage, said. “We are honored to be selected and recognized once again for our efforts to improve the supply chain on a continuous basis.”
“This year’s 13th-annual award recognizes small, mid-size and large enterprises that leveraged green practices and solutions to further drive sustainable improvements in their supply chain,” Marina Mayer, editor-in-chief of Supply & Demand Chain Executive and Food Logistics, said. “From software solutions to transportation management systems to several other initiatives designed to reduce carbon footprint and improve the re-use of materials, sustainability continues to rank as a key component to a stronger, safer and more efficient supply chain.”
