IoT-enabled carbon footprint monitoring solution for logistics receives Green Supply Chain 2017 Award
Supply & Demand Chain Executive, the executive’s user manual for successful supply and demand chain transformation, has selected Arviem as the recipient of the SDCE Green Supply Chain Award for 2017.
Arviem’s service helps organisations to account for the impact of their logistics processes in the environmental analysis of their supply chains. Arviem’s innovative, IoT- enabled, real-time carbon footprint monitoring service for logistics provides in-transit visibility which enables exporters, importers, distributors and manufacturers of goods to understand the environmental impact of their supply chain activities.
Unlike other solutions on the market, Arviem’s carbon emissions reporting is calculated based on effective transport data instead of the less accurate planning data. It offers granularity down to each individual shipment. As Pam Fitzpatrick from Gartner states in her report just published a few days ago “for some companies, even simple environmental measures such as reporting on the carbon emissions of their logistics networks or shipments are beyond their capability”.
Arviem’s service addresses this gap. Arviem’s pay-as-you-use monitoring service enables companies to monitor the carbon footprint of their logistics supply chain from day one, without the burden of introducing new processes or investing into equipment or software.
Arviem’s CEO, Stefan Reidy, adds “Receiving this award is an important milestone for us towards our vision of making the entire supply chain ecosystem more visible by uncovering blind spots. Our real-time carbon footprint monitoring service for logistics is a powerful addition to other components of our IoT-enabled services such as real-time cargo condition and location monitoring, shipment performance reports or working capital management solutions.”
“This award is a recognition of our efforts towards supporting the sustainability initiatives of our clients. Thanks to the hard work of our team, our service helps clients in optimising the utilisation of various transport modes across their supply chains and analyse the performance of their carriers and third party logistics providers” adds Mirko Schneider, director of sales at Arviem.
The Green Supply Chain Award recognises companies making green or sustainability a core part of their supply chain strategy, and are working to achieve measurable sustainability goals within their own operations and supply chains. The awards also recognise providers of supply chain solutions and services assisting their customers in achieving measurable sustainability goals.
This year’s 10th-annual awards recognise small, mid-size and large enterprises that leveraged green practices and solutions to further drive sustainable improvements in their supply chain.“Honorees for this year’s award demonstrate that corporate social responsibility is a business imperative that transcends the company and extends throughout the supply chain, involving suppliers and customers,” says John R. Yuva, editor for supply & demand chain executive. Yuva adds. “Our honorees serve as role models for supply chains globally to expand their CSR reach and impact.”
