SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, CA — June 23, 2021 — Merit Logistics, a national third-party warehouse services provider, has been named to Food Logistics’ 2021 Top Green Providers list. Food Logistics is the only publication exclusively dedicated to covering the movement of product through the global cold food supply chain.
Merit Logistics’ is being recognized as a leading green provider for their proprietary warehouse labor management system called MOS. This state-of-the-art platform is the backbone of the company’s warehouse services offering. Many of the largest grocery chains and cold storage warehouses rely on Merit Logistics to provide freight handling and warehouse services for their distribution centers nationwide. MOS is a green technology solution that facilitates a fully paperless work environment and creates measurable improvements to warehouse operating efficiencies. The platform is designed to eliminate the paper processes typically involved in warehouse hiring, reporting, billing/invoicing, and freight unloading payments and receipt handling.

Food Logistics’ annual Top Green Providers list recognizes those companies whose products, services, or exemplary leadership is enhancing sustainability within the food and beverage industry. The editorial staff evaluates a company’s participation in such programs as the EPA’s SmartWay and other recognized sustainability programs; facilities that are LEED-certified and/or feature solar panels, LED lighting and other energy saving installations and retrofits; and other means of producing measurable reductions in GHG emissions, to name a few. The recipients of this year’s award are being profiled in the June 2021 print issue of Food Logistics.
“When the pandemic hit, I thought for sure that sustainability would be pushed to the wayside. But, in fact, the complete opposite happened. And, I couldn’t be more appreciative of the supply chain industry’s efforts in making sustainability top of mind in every aspect of their organization despite the many supply chain disruptions they continue to face,” says Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief of Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “Sustainability is the key to success, and the recipients of this year’s award prove that when sustainability matters to them, they will continue do great things and make a difference in the industry.”
