Inbound Logistics recently named Kane Logistics among 75 companies that go above and beyond to ensure their global supply chains are sustainable, and that their operations are socially and environmentally friendly. The G75 list is compiled annually by Inbound Logistics editors.
KANE's green initiatives include:
- Fuel reduction. Advanced systems are used to optimize delivery routes to minimize time and miles. KANE has been a SmartWay member since 2006 and utilizes the most modern, fuel-efficient trucks.
- Energy-efficient lighting. High-efficiency, high-bay LED replacement fixtures were installed in
warehouses and LED retrofit lamps were installed in existing fixtures in offices and
parking areas. The investment has improved safety through better lighting and also sharply reduced energy use in facilities.
