Stocks in this article: ABFS





FORT SMITH, Ark., July 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ABF® is cited by Inbound Logistics as a "Green 75 Supply Chain Partner." The magazine's annual list of supply chain partners committed to sustainability appears in a special "Supply Chain Sustainability" issue.  ABF appears on the list for the third consecutive year.

"ABF was an early pioneer in adopting many of the fleet efficiency and sustainability measures that are now seen as proven methods for promoting a greener supply chain," said ABF President and Chief Executive Officer Roy Slagle. "It is gratifying to see our efforts recognized once again by the editors of Inbound Logistics magazine."

As part of its sustainability efforts, ABF initiated several programs, including: reducing fuel consumption and enhancing operational efficiency through best practices that include a strictly followed equipment maintenance/replacement program and a limited maximum speed limit of 62 mph; engine idle shutdown programming to prevent unattended idling in yard tractors as well as road and city tractors; and installing aerodynamic aids on select pieces of equipment, thus reducing wind resistance.

As the principal subsidiary of Arkansas Best Corporation (Nasdaq: ABFS), ABF operates as a global provider of customizable supply chain solutions. ABF enhances supply-chain efficiencies and achieves optimum performance by focusing on specific logistics needs and customizing innovative solutions. The carrier's resource-rich infrastructure includes an innovative Dual-System® Network for regional and national transportation. Its portfolio of logistics services extends from the manufacturer's floor to expedited and/or white-glove final delivery. In between, customers benefit from a single point of contact and total end-to-end supply chain visibility.
