Pittsburgh, PA (April 26, 2017) – PITT OHIO was presented with its third Alliance Award along with The Reliance Network carrier Averitt Express and customer SalonCentric for achieving goals in reducing environmental waste and improving customer order times.
Given by Logistics Management and SMC3, an industry trade association, The Alliance Award is presented to shippers and their alliance partners that improve supply chain efficiency through innovative practices. Contenders for the award are judged on their use of each alliance partner’s unique strengths and ability to show real world results.
By switching from traditional corrugate to reusable plastic totes, SalonCentric has drastically reduced the amount of disposable waste it puts into its supply chain. To pull it off, Averitt picks up empty totes during deliveries that are then returned to a consolidation point for reuse. The program has reduced supply chain fees associated with corrugate consumption and disposal by $40,000 annually.
