Northwest seaports recognized for environmental practices

The sustainability commitments of the ports of Seattle and Tacoma have once again earned Inbound Logistics Green Supply Chain Partner honors. 

Two of seven U.S. ports selected, Tacoma and Seattle were recognized for their efforts to reduce seaport-related emissions through the Northwest Ports Clean Air Strategy, restore habitat and find innovative solutions to manage stormwater runoff.

The trade magazine honored 75 organizations from various trade sectors, including ports, truckers, railroads, shipping lines, freight forwarders and air cargo carriers.

“The 75 Green Supply Chain Partners is a very select group, and we found the ports of Seattle and Tacoma to be among those companies that are truly ‘walking the walk’ when it comes to supply chain sustainability,” said Felecia Stratton, editor of Inbound Logistics. “The G75 list represents 75 visionaries who have demonstrated a long-standing history of driving efficiencies in their customers' operations and an internal commitment to be as lean and green as possible. Inbound Logistics is proud to honor the port of Tacoma and Seattle among this important group of industry-changing leaders.”

The complete list of honored partners is featured in the magazine's June issue.
