LLamasoft’s Ability to Help Customers Operate Sustainable Supply Chains Recognized by SDCE
LLamasoft has once again been selected as a winner of the Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s Green Supply Chain Award for the third year in a row. This award recognizes LLamasoft’s efforts to both help its customers operate more sustainable supply chains, as well as to create a green culture internally.
Using LLamasoft’s modeling technology, customers are able to create a “digital twin” of their supply chain, making it easier for them to: optimize transportation routes to reduce empty miles and CO2 emissions impact, evaluate physical supply chains to minimize environmental impact and identify redundant facilities, and find opportunities to improve both service levels and environmental performance by storing more finished goods closer to sources of demand.
Additionally, LLamasoft’s own Green Team runs initiatives to create a culture that emphasizes sustainability by developing activities that make it easy for every LLamasoft employee to support and promote sustainability. Corporate efforts to achieve sustainability goals include an annual user conference with sustainability focus and metrics, company-wide recycling commitments and promoting and incentivizing alternate commuting methods employees can use to travel to and from work.
“What a way to close out 2019! Thank you to all of our global llamas whose hard work and relentless drive to create value for our customers is what ultimately brings us the recognition of these three awards,” said LLamasoft’s Chief Marketing Office, Sandra Moran. “As we look forward to 2020, and take stock of our accomplishments this year, we are more committed than ever to continue our mission to positively impact 100 million lives in the next two years.
