PITT OHIO, a leader in regional and national logistics services and sustainability in the transportation industry, has been named a 2019 Green Supply Chain Partner by Inbound Logistics Magazine.
The publication Inbound Logistics selects the G75 Green Supply Chain winners based on four benchmarks: sustainability innovation, measurable green results, continuous improvement and industry recognition. The G75 list is released annually and highlights the strides companies are taking to make sure the footprint they leave on the world is a positive one.
Most recently, PITT OHIO has implemented trash compactors at its Baltimore, Columbus, Harrisburg, Norristown, Pittsburgh and Richmond terminals. The Pittsburgh terminal compactor specifically, has reduced trash pickup from two to three times a week to one pickup every five to seven weeks, minimizing the amount of waste sent to landfills.
PITT OHIO’s next sustainability step is the completion of their Cleveland Terminal. The new construction terminal located in Parma, OH is currently LEED certified and will be equipped with an upgraded micro-grid system, powered by 1500 Solar Panels and 8 wind turbines.
“PITT OHIO continues our commitment to sustainability in 2019 with the opening of our newest LEED certified facility outside of Cleveland, Ohio later this year,” said Justine Russo Director of Sustainability and Business Intelligence at PITT OHIO. “We are excited to show how this cross-departmental initiative aligns with our focus on People, Planet, and Purpose by creating a beautiful, safe and efficient terminal for our employees.”
