Supply chain and IT consulting firm recognized for promoting sustainability through supply chains for the fifth consecutive year
enVista, a leading global supply chain consulting and IT services firm, today announces it has received the Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine 2016 Green Supply Chain Award for the fifth consecutive year. The award recognizes companies that make green initiatives and sustainability a core part of their supply chain strategy and offer services and solutions that assist customers in achieving measurable sustainability goals. Award recipients will be featured in the December issue of the magazine.
enVista consultants are Lean Six Sigma experts dedicated to helping clients reduce waste from source to consumption, saving companies money along the way. The company has helped many clients meet their goals of going green through services including supply chain network design, inventory optimization, facility design build, transportation strategy, and operations improvement and technology selections and implementations.
Over the past two years, enVista has especially seen increased demand in supply chain network design and inventory optimization, which can significantly drive down inventory and transportation waste.
Contributing to enVista’s Green Supply Chain Award win was its work with an apparel manufacturer and distributor based in Southeast United States that utilized enVista for implementing a Tier-1 LMS application, in addition to our comprehensive employee training and change management program. This client has achieved upwards of an eight percent increase in outbound unit throughput with no increase in labor costs or capital improvement. On the inbound side, this client has improved stock time by over 30 percent through process improvement, again with no increase in labor or capital improvement.
“enVista has always been dedicated to helping clients reduce waste throughout all areas of the supply chain,” said enVista President and CEO Jim Barnes. “Being recognized by Supply & Demand Chain Executive for the fifth consecutive year solidifies us as a leader in the space, providing clients with the solutions they need to decrease their environmental impact and see significant financial savings.”
