Lynden is profiled in the June issue of the magazine for "focusing its people, equipment, processes and technology on efficient use of resources and sustainable operations." The Top 100 3PL list appears in the July issue and singles Lynden out for providing excellence in transportation and logistics solutions and exceeding customer expectations. Both lists are compiled by surveying hundreds of supply chain professionals.

"From recycling materials to updating fleets with the latest technology for mile-per-gallon gains, Green Supply Chain Partners like Lynden constantly innovate to work greener," says Felecia Stratton, Inbound Logistics Editor. Inbound Logistics' annual 75 Green Supply Chain Partners (G75) showcases the top 75 companies that demonstrate green best practices in their supply chain, logistics and transportation operations. Editors comb through submissions from companies with impressive green credentials and ultimately choose the G75 based on four benchmarks: measurable green results, sustainability innovation, continuous improvement and industry recognition.

Lynden provides transportation, logistics and customs clearance for customers' supply chain needs in the U.S. and Canada, including warehousing, distribution, return programs and raw materials handling. The company was selected as a 3PL logistics leader for its collaborative partnerships with customers and innovative services.

"We are proud to be included on these prestigious lists for the sixth consecutive year. Our employees have spent considerable time, thought and effort developing programs and processes that allow us to operate responsibly in the environments where we do business and this award is proof that our efforts are working," says Lynden President Jon Burdick. "We are also proud of our ongoing status as a top 3PL and will continue to partner with our customers to find cost-effective, innovative solutions for their supply chain, transportation and logistics needs."

Lynden Named Top 75 Green Supply Chain Partner, Top 100 3PL

Green 75 logoThe Lynden family of companies was included in Inbound Logistics magazine's annual Top 100 3PLs and 75 Green Supply Chain Partner lists for 2013. Lynden is profiled in the June "lean and green" issue of the magazine, and the Top 100 list appears in the July issue.

The lists are compiled by surveys and polls of 3PLs and supply chain professionals. The Top 100 3PL Providers list is the result of editors soliciting questionnaires from more than 400 3PLs, detailing the services they provide and their areas of expertise. "Hundreds of companies submitted credentials again this year, presenting a difficult challenge for the editors to select only 100 3PL leaders among them," says Felecia Stratton, Inbound Logistics Editor.

The Green Supply Chain Partner selection considers a company's involvement in three areas: participation in public-private partnerships, corporate sustainability initiatives and collaborative customer-driven projects. According to the magazine, "Lynden's truck fleet is among the most fuel-efficient in the nation based on the EPA's SmartWay program criteria. The company has continued to improve its equipment with more efficient engines; aerodynamic side skirts, tanker, and trailer design; wide-base single tires; and idle-reduction equipment. The improved use of routing software has similarly improved fuel savings, as well as on-time delivery."

"It's an honor to be included in Inbound Logistics' annual lists year after year," says Lynden President and CEO Jon Burdick. "At Lynden, we foster a culture of customer service, innovation and efficiency with a focus on protecting the environments where we do business. Both the 3PL and G75 designations make us proud of the work we are doing and the employees who provide excellent service to our customers every day."
