CJ Logistics announced on the 20th that its consolidated U.S. subsidiary, CJ Logistics America, had made U.S. logistics magazine Inbound Logistics' list of green supply chain partners for 2021.

Each year Inbound Logistics selects 75 exemplary companies that have built a sustainable global supply chain and practice society- and eco-friendly logistics operations, naming them “Green Supply Chain Partners.” Among the companies selected this year, a number of renowned global logistics companies such as DHL, UPS, and Fedex were included with CJ Logistics America standing shoulder to shoulder with them on the list.

CJ Logistics America received high praise for continuously coming up with sustainable management projects through partnerships with clients. CJ Logistics America sets its own indicators and manages performance in the six categories of electricity, natural gas, propane, water, recycling and waste. In addition, the company reduces carbon emissions by measuring and managing energy usage at its business locations across the United States and establishing an optimized network through regular client consulting.

Transporting delivery packages via shared trucks is an exemplary green logistics practice case that not only reduces costs for clients through increased logistics efficiency but also reduces carbon emissions.
