GREENE, N.Y. - The Raymond Corporation has been recently recognized as a top green provider and partner by two industry publications—Food Logistics and InBound Logistics magazines—for its sustainability practices. Raymond is committed to preserving and protecting the environment across all business activities by designing, developing and manufacturing products using materials, methods and technologies that minimize risk and adverse impacts.

Raymond was recognized as the 2014 Top Green Provider by Food Logistics magazine, a publication dedicated exclusively to the food and beverage supply chain. The Top Green Providers focuses on sustainability in the global food supply chain focusing on companies who are exceeding industry standards in their sector. “In the food and beverage sector, sustainability and environmental stewardship are primary considerations given the unique relationship between businesses in this sector and our planet’s natural resources,” explained Lara L. Sowinski, editor-in-chief for Food Logistics. “Our 2014 list of Top Green Providers includes agricultural companies, 3PLs, temperature-controlled facilities and others who demonstrate leadership in sustainability, which in turn positively affects their customers as well.”

Raymond also received recognition as a 2014 Top 75 Green Supply Chain Partner by InBound Logistics magazine, a publication dedicated to the logistics and supply chain sector. The selection process considers a company's involvement in three areas: participation in public-private partnerships; corporate sustainability initiatives; and collaborative customer-driven projects.
“Supply chain sustainability has always been top of mind for Inbound Logistics readers. The 75 Green Supply Chain Partners is a very select group, and we found Raymond to be one of those companies that is truly ‘walking the walk’ when it comes to supply chain sustainability,” says Felecia Stratton, Editor, 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 Raymond among this important group of industry-changing leaders.”
