Nov 21, 2013

CHANDLER, Ariz., Nov. 21, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OnTrac is proud to
be one of Supply and Demand Chain Executive's 2013 Green Supply Chain
Award winners.

The sixth-annual awards honor sustainability efforts that impact the
supply chain, and are meant to recognize companies making green efforts
and sustainability a core part of their supply chain strategy.

OnTrac's built in regional hub-and-spoke model keeps freight on the
ground, which reduces the cost to its customers and keeps the company
environmentally conscious. OnTrac works to achieve measurable
sustainability goals within our operations through the strategic
planning and location of our hubs and continuous driver route
optimization with emissions reduction.

Additionally, the OnTrac facilities work with local waste management
companies to reduce/consolidate waste in the most eco-friendly manners,
and stay active with a cell phone and shipping material recycling
program. The company also provides complete online resources and a
paperless payroll, encourages trip reduction and a corporate recycling

"Our goal is a continuous pursuit to identify equipment, technologies,
and strategies that reduce our fuel consumption and lower our
emissions," OnTrac Director of Fleet Operations Steve Heron said.
"OnTrac reduces its carbon footprint through improved fuel efficiencies
and emissions reductions, thus demonstrating our commitment to operate
responsibly. We are proud to be recognized for our sustainability
efforts by the Supply and Demand Chain Executives."

The awards highlight companies that are making sustainability a core
part of the businesses and supply chain strategies. About 100
submissions were received through an open nomination process.
Submissions were judged based on the clarity and content of the goals
and strategy, the extent of the steps being taken, the impact of the
results to date and projected results, and the form and presentation of
the information submitted. Utilizing renewable energy, minimizing
waste, and maximizing facility and solutions lifespans are all
components that leading companies in supply chain increasingly enforce.
This year's sixth annual awards recognize small, mid-size and large
enterprises that leveraged green practices and solutions to further
drive sustainable improvements in their supply chain.
