Pittsburgh, PA (July 28, 2022) - PITT OHIO, a leader in transportation, warehouse and logistics services, announced today that Inbound Logistics Magazine has named the company as a 2022 Green Supply Chain Partner. This is the 3rd time PITT OHIO has been named a Green Supply Chain Partner by Inbound Logistics.
Inbound Logistics' annual G75 is an editors' choice list of 75 companies that go above and beyond to ensure their global supply chains are sustainable, and that their operations are socially and environmentally friendly. These companies are dedicated to developing and implementing best practices that leave a positive footprint on the world.
Inbound Logistics referenced PITT OHIO’s the patented process the Company uses with its renewable energy microgrid as a notable achievement. At two of its terminals, PITT OHIO patented a renewable energy microgrid that transfers wind and solar energy into a battery system to generate, store, and consume renewable energy on-site. Excess renewable energy is sent back to the utility when generation exceeds demand, allowing the terminal to function autonomously and indefinitely.
Inbound Logistics also noted PITT OHIO’s efficiency improvements and reduction in carbon emissions in 2021. The Company saw an increase in business as the economy opened up in 2021, but gallons of fuel only went up 4.6% for an estimated savings of over 200,000 gallons of diesel fuel. PITT OHIO accomplished this by utilizing straight trucks over tractors and updating preventive maintenance schedule intervals to ensure vehicles and tires perform optimally. The estimated reduction to oil was 12,000 gallons annually.
“PITT OHIO is honored to be recognized as one of Inbound Logistics’ Green Supply Chain Partners in 2022,” said PITT OHIO’s Director of Sustainability, Justine Russo. “We understand the nature of our business and the impact we have on our communities, our customers, and our employees. Sustainability is one of PITT OHIO’s key pillars and we are excited to continue our journey to find innovative solutions that reduce our carbon footprint, make the organization more efficient, make our terminals the workplace of choice for our employees, and provide customers with best-in-class service, both today and in the future.”
