Inbound Logistics award solidifies Raymond as a sustainability leader in the intralogistics space

GREENE, N.Y., September 20, 2022 — As the global supply chain continues to focus on environmentally friendly solutions and energy efficiency, The Raymond Corporation remains committed to providing solutions that offer unparalleled efficiency and performance. Inbound Logistics named The Raymond Corporation a 2022 Green Supply Chain Partner in recognition of its ongoing sustainability efforts. This award joins over 20 other green supply chain awards Raymond has won in its pursuit to provide warehouses with more sustainable energy products.

Each year, Inbound Logistics selects its 75 Green Supply Chain Partners (G75) based on the companies’ current and ongoing green logistics initiatives. These companies are dedicated to developing and implementing best practices that help operations become more socially and environmentally friendly.

Inbound Logistics chose Raymond for its dedication to continuously improving sustainability efforts within its warehouses, including utilizing alternative fuels or energy sources, implementing a reuse/recycling program, shutting down equipment to reduce power draw over breaks, reusing wastewater and incorporating sustainable packaging.

“As a company, we continually invest in new technologies and business practices that help us reduce our own carbon footprint, one innovation at a time,” said Jennifer de Souza, Vice President of Energy Solutions, Procurement, and Leasing at The Raymond Corporation. “Being in an industry that keeps the world moving, we must work to implement solutions that not only enhance efficiency and productivity but also work to minimize environmental impacts.”

Beyond technology solutions, Raymond has taken a long-lens view of alternative energy adoption, including collaborative efforts with community organizations and industry associations, as well as a strong focus on forwarding education initiatives to develop future talent and technologies.

Building on this experience, de Souza has been invited to speak at the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Electricity’s second annual Energy Storage Grand Challenge Summit, which is being held at the Argonne National Laboratory main campus and virtually Sept. 27 and 28. De Souza will join an expert panel discussion focusing on regional strategies to commercialize energy storage technologies at 8:30 a.m. ET on Sept. 28.
