Freight Matters Webinar: Toward Greener Supply Chain: How The Home Depot Reduces its Environmental Footprint and Costs

Toward Greener Supply Chain:  How The Home Depot reduces its environmental footprint and costs

As one of the nation’s largest importers, The Home Depot teamed up with the International Council on Clean Transportation to conduct a study of its supply chain to better understand the impacts of freight efficiency strategies.  The study helped illustrate the elements of a real-world “green supply chain” and how it compares with a traditional supply chain.  Findings include insights about how even a high(er) efficiency supply chain can continue to enhance efficiency and environmental performance with even more advanced strategies which are available now or on the horizon.  This webinar is brought to you by Loyola University Chicago and US EPA SmartWay.
