Inbound Logistics Honors The Raymond Corporation’s Sustainability Efforts

Inbound Logistics has recognized The Raymond Corporation as a 2019 G75 Green Supply Chain Partner. The publication profiled Raymond in a June G75 special report, recognizing the company’s commitment to developing and implementing sustainable initiatives.

Inbound Logistics selects annual G75 Green Supply Chain Partners based on the companies’ current and ongoing green logistics initiatives. The publication chose Raymond for continuously improving sustainability efforts within Raymond warehouses, including tapping into alternative fuels or energy sources, implementing a reuse/recycling program, reusing wastewater and incorporating sustainable packaging.

In addition to the company’s array of sustainable supply chain practices and energy solutions, the Raymond iWAREHOUSE® platform helps Raymond and its customers measure fleet and operator performance for optimum results. It tracks key performance metrics, energy consumption and cost savings, as well as lift truck uptime, battery performance, kilowatt usage, operator behavior and throughput. This powerful telematics solution allows managers to correct inefficiencies and track progress against goals so improvements can be made.

“Having a full scale of intralogistics solutions allows Raymond and our customers to track critical information such as productivity, uptime, battery performance and cost savings,” said Michael Field, CEO, Raymond. “At Raymond, we are always searching for ways to make our warehouses and our customers’ operations more sustainable, so being recognized for our efforts is a meaningful accomplishment.”
