C H Robinson Worldwide Inc, a logistics and transportation provider, was recognized with a 2009 Environmental Award by CSX. This award was presented at the second-annual CSX Environmental Awards dinner in Jacksonville FL recently. The dinner was part of a week-long Earth Day celebration at CSX, a transportation company providing rail, intermodal, and rail-to-truck transload services.
“We’re honored to be recognized for our commitment to sustainability,” said Steve Weiby, C H Robinson vice-president. “CSX has been a leader in promoting the importance of environmental stewardship in freight transportation, and we’re proud that our work with them is making a difference. We view sustainability as an overall approach to business that adds value and improves efficiencies. We will continue to invest in the long-term success of our industry and focus on finding ways to help our customers and our industry reduce waste in supply chains.”
CSX recognizes C H Robinson’s commitment to “greening” supply chains by shipping via rail and thereby reducing carbon emissions, decreasing congestion on highways, and conserving fossil fuels.
The awards specifically recognize customers that led their industry in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions avoidance in 2009; demonstrated the greatest improvement in avoided emissions in 2009 versus 2008; or deserve special recognition for commitment to sustained supply chain practices through use of rail or intermodal.
“CSX is pleased to recognize C H Robinson’s commitment to sustainability,” said Clarence W Gooden, executive vice-president, sales and marketing and chief commercial officer of CSX. “We are pleased to be a part of their green supply chain. A single CSX trains can haul a ton of freight more than 436 miles on a single gallon of fuel.”
Founded in 1905, C H Robinson supplies multimodal logistics services, fresh produce sourcing, and information services to 35,000 customers through a network of more than 235 offices and approximately 7,200 employees around the world. Headquartered in Eden Prairie MN, the company works with 47,000 transportation providers worldwide.
