OnTrac is proud to be one of Supply and Demand Chain Executive’s 2013 Green Supply Chain Award winners.
The sixth-annual awards honor sustainability efforts that impact the supply chain, and are meant to recognize companies making green efforts and sustainability a core part of their supply chain strategy.
OnTrac's built in regional hub-and-spoke model keeps freight on the ground, which reduces the cost to its customers and keeps the company environmentally conscious. OnTrac works to achieve measurable sustainability goals within our operations through the strategic planning and location of our hubs and continuous driver route optimization with emissions reduction.
Additionally, the OnTrac facilities work with local waste management companies to reduce/consolidate waste in the most eco-friendly manners, stay active with a cell phone and shipping material recycling program. The company also provides complete online resources and a paperless payroll, encourages trip reduction and a corporate recycling program.
"Our goal is a continuous pursuit to identify equipment, technologies, and strategies that reduce our fuel consumption and lower our emissions," OnTrac Director of Fleet Operations Steve Heron said. "OnTrac reduces its carbon footprint through improved fuel efficiencies and emissions reductions, thus demonstrating our commitment to operate responsibly. We are proud to be recognized for our sustainability efforts by the Supply and Demand Chain Executives."
The awards highlight companies that are making sustainability a core part of the businesses and supply chain strategies. About 100 submissions were received through an open nomination process. The magazine’s editorial staff reviewed the submissions based on clarity and content of the goals and strategy, the extent of the steps being taken, and the impact of the results to date.
Submissions were judged based on the clarity and content of the goals and strategy, the extent of the steps being taken, the impact of the results to date and projected results, and the form and presentation of the information submitted. Utilizing renewable energy, minimizing waste, and maximizing facility and solutions lifespans are all components that leading companies in supply chain increasingly enforce. This year's sixth-annual awards recognize small, mid-size and large enterprises that leveraged green practices and solutions to further drive sustainable improvements in their supply chain.
OnTrac is pleased to announce its spot in the 2013 Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100, which highlights the industry’s “100 Great Supply Chain Projects.”
OnTrac was nominated by Newegg Inc., the leading electronics-focused e-retailer in the United States, for its role in helping the company improve the customer experience by decreasing delivery times and generating savings.
Newegg added OnTrac to its transportation carrier portfolio in September, 2012 to help service its customers on the West Coast. As a result of using OnTrac, Newegg was able to reduce average transit days and get its products into the hands of customers faster.
“Providing the best possible service to our customers is a top priority at Newegg,” said Kunal Thakkar, Vice President of Operations at Newegg. “That’s why we decided to introduce regional carriers like OnTrac to help bring more flexibility in our business operations while enhancing the customer experience. We’re thrilled that Supply & Demand Chain Executive has recognized our work together and we look forward to continuing to work closely with OnTrac.”
For the past 11 years, the SDCE100 has spotlighted successful and innovative transformation projects that have enabled shippers to deliver bottom-line value to small, medium and large enterprises across the range of supply chain functions that industry professionals face today.
“We would like to thank Newegg for nominating us as one of the Supply and Demand Chain Executive’s Top 100,” Vice President of Marketing Laura Peterson said. “Our facilities and transport lanes are set up strategically throughout the 8 Western States to provide our customers a transit time advantage over their competitors. We are happy to be a part of Newegg’s continued success and to have played a part in supporting their business goals.”
The world of supply chain is ever-evolving, becoming more complex seemingly by the day. To keep up with the volatility and the demand-driven needs of customers, supply chain solution providers, consultants and other organizations must be flexible enough to react to change but also visionary enough to prepare for the future.
“Our goal with this year's ‘100’ is to put the spotlight on successful and innovative transformation projects that deliver bottom-line value to small, medium and large enterprises across the different functions that comprise the supply chain,” said Barry Hochfelder, Editor of Supply & Demand Chain Executive, when the awards were announced. “The projects featured in the '100' article can serve as a roadmap for supply chain executives looking for new opportunities to drive improvement in their own operations.”
After receiving nomination forms, the Supply & Demand Chain Executive editorial staff identified applicants that best fit the stated criteria for the “100”. Final recipients are featured with more detail in the June 2013 print issue of Supply & Demand Chain Executive, as well as online at sdcexec.com.
