GREEN BAY, Wis. – (July 18, 2019) – Schneider (NYSE: SNDR), a premier provider of trucking, intermodal and logistics services, was named to Food Logistics’ annual Top Green Providers list for 2019. Compiled annually, the Top Green Providers honor 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. The Food Logistics 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 measurable reductions in GHG emissions, to name a few.
"Our Top Green Providers demonstrate leadership in sustainability throughout the global food supply chain, from better management of natural resources to technology applications and operational improvements that reduce food waste from the farm to the retailer to the end consumer," notes Lara L. Sowinski, editorial director. "Environmental stewardship is a defining feature for these companies, as is their determination to continually raise the sustainability bar year after year."
Today, most of the tractors added to Schneider’s fleet are equipped with an auxiliary power unit, which reduces idling of the main engine. The company has improved fuel efficiency by 14.8 percent since 2008, and it reduced fuel consumption by 5 million gallons between 2017–2018.
