ArrowStream Included on Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s 2013 Green Supply Chain Award list
Chicago, IL-November 19, 2013 – ArrowStream, Inc. (“ArrowStream”), a leading provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) supply chain management technology, has been honored and recognized on the annual “Supply & Demand Chain Executive Green Supply Chain Awards” list for the second year in a row.
The businesses included in this year’s “green” awards demonstrated their sustainability best practices in a variety of examples, some of which include manufacturing goods using recycled materials; using alternative fuel vehicles; and working to pass on sustainability best practices further down their supply chain to distributors, third-party providers and other key moving parts.
“…We honor this year’s top 51 recipients for recognizing that there is a need for supply chain sustainability processes and for contributing to this practice with their global, eco-friendly industry actions,” said Barry Hochfelder, Editor, Supply & Demand Chain Executive.
ArrowStream Crossbow is built to improve efficiency in inbound freight by establishing collaborative decision-making between Purchasing and Logistics departments. Supply chain organizations are able to proactively plan the optimal product flow into distribution facilities, increasing truck utilization, and dramatically reducing the miles driven.
“By taking excess miles out of our customers’ supply chain networks we significantly reduce their carbon footprints, which simultaneously results in major savings. Many of our customers have reduced their carbon footprints by 20-30% through utilizing our technology,” said Steven LaVoie, Chairman and CEO at ArrowStream. “Sustainability is not only the right thing to do, but it is also good business.”
The full listing of the 2013 Green Supply Chain Award honorees is available on Supply & Demand Chain Executive. An expanded listing will appear in the December 2013 issue of Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine and online thereafter.
