Hyster recognized as inbound logistics green supply chain partner
Being tough in rugged applications does not have to translate to being tough on the environment. Hyster Company was recently recognized as one of Inbound Logistics’ 75 Green Supply Chain Partners for its energy-saving lift truck design and environmentally-friendly company policies.
“Hyster may be tough, but we will always be working towards creating an environmentally-friendly workplace and providing energy efficient lift trucks to our customers,” said Jonathan Dawley, president of Hyster Distribution. “Our trucks are durable and are geared to combat fuel and energy costs for both ICE and electric truck users. To be recognized by Inbound Logistics is an honor and validation of our efforts.”
The 75 Supply Chain Partners were selected based on their sustainability innovation, industry recognition, measurable green results and continuous improvement in each of these areas. The list is intended as a green buyers guide for Inbound Logistics’ readers looking to work with sustainable providers.
In the Green 75 announcement, Hyster is recognized for continuing to design and manufacture energy-saving electric lift trucks that conserve energy when lowering loads, as well as when braking. In addition to these zero-emission solutions, the company was also praised for their extensive recycling programs on all Hyster sites, which promote the re-use of wood, paper products, metals, electronics, lift truck batteries, tires and oil.
