The Shippers Group was named among the top 75 supply chain companies that go above and beyond to increase sustainability in their operations. The G75 by Inbound Logistics is a prestigious award amongst industry firms. One example of TSG’s efforts was participation in the Texas Emissions Reduction Plan since 2007. The third-party logistics provider runs a recycle program for dunnage and shrinkwrap. As a SmartWay-certified carrier, the company restricts idle times to 3 minutes, maximizes cargo space utilization in trailers and works to eliminate moving empty trailers to reduce carbon emissions.

The Shippers Group removed high emissions forklifts from it’s fleet and reduced non-greenhouse gas emissions by 206 metric tons.
“Applying a more sustainable mindset to our operations and transportation services is good business. We are always looking to reduce our footprint and pass along those savings to our customers. Most times, the reduction or elimination of waste make sense to our business, our environment and our customers,” says Rob Doyle, president of The Shippers Group.
