With increased international attention focused on the environmental impact of manufacturing and transportation, today's leading companies are using cutting-edge technology to "go green" in another area that can make a dramatic difference: the supply chain.
In addition to boosting a company's reputation in the minds of consumers, applying a "green" mindset to supply chain processes can also deliver financial benefits, including reduced costs in key areas such as materials, labor and transportation. Balancing environmental objectives with strategic and financial goals is a tricky business, but at RedPrairie we believe there are simple, cost-effective ways for companies to help their supply chains support their environmental goals.
Creating a "green" supply chain can be easier than you think. Going "green" means committing to change, but that doesn't mean it needs to be a painful, expensive, or lengthy process. Every step to increase efficiency throughout the system adds up, and the overall impact can make a dramatic difference-for both the environment and the bottom line.
