Evergreen Packaging, a provider of beverage packaging systems, publication and converting papers, is moving to centrally manage its North American logistics as an effort to be more efficient and cost effective for their customers.
The firm recently awarded Transportation Management Center (TMC), a division of C.H. Robinson, a three-year contract to centrally manage Evergreen Packaging’s North American logistics. C.H. Robinson is a one of the largest third party logistics (3PL) companies in the world, providing global multimodal transportation services and logistics solutions.
TMC will provide a combination of proprietary web based TMS technology and dedicated transportation experts for Evergreen Packaging’s outbound freight networks. Evergreen Packaging will enhance control of carrier selection and rate negotiation using TMC’s Managed TMS services.
TMC provides visibility across Evergreen’s entire North American network and will provide reporting, including freight audit and bill pay, enabling a uniformed process across the enterprise.
“TMC will also help us measure our carbon footprint as it relates to transportation. Essentially, both of our teams are working together, bringing best practices to the table that will benefit our customers, community and the environment – a true collaboration. We look forward to increasing our supply chain efficiencies through TMC’s team,” said David Friedson, director, Logistics & Distribution for Evergreen Packaging.
