Green logistics has become a central concern for a large number of supply chain professionals, but for the small- to mid-size manufacturer who may not know where to start, ITS Logistics offers a few tips to help reduce your carbon footprint.

• Do you optimize your recycling? To find out if anything your company is discarding may be reused, please visit http://earth911.com/ and search for a recycling center near you.
• Use only 100% recycled corrugated materials and shipping supplies
• Avoid using plastic materials for dunnage.
• Choose partners wisely. Make sure they also work toward creating green solutions, and can do so on your behalf.
• Prioritize truck companies with no-idling policies, and environmentally friendly rigs.
• Be aware of how returns are handled –how do they come in, and what do you do with them

ITS Logistics has found additional benefits to going green, as customers appreciate good intentions and actions. ITS Logistics can, at the company's request, include notification inside shipments that it has been designed to be environmentally friendly. This can improve a brand's reputation, and build loyalty among end consumers. Building in sustainability can also lower overall costs, as you design solutions to reduce your transportation requirements.

ITS Logistics is happy to offer a free consultation to those who are interested in learning how partnering with a third party logistics firm will help them to cut costs and reduce their carbon footprint.
