Livonia’s CAPS Recognized As Top Green Provider
LIVONIA — CAPS has been named a 2013 Top Green Provider by Food Logistics Magazine. The award recognizes companies providing products, services or exemplary leadership in exceeding sustainability standards in the food and beverage supply chain.
For 15 years, CAPS has provided an all-inclusive container rental program that reduces the environmental impact of customers’ supply chains. By offering collapsible containers, asset tracking and transportation optimization through supply chain synergies, CAPS helps these customers to minimize packaging waste and reduce transportation gas emissions. This comprehensive program features a reusable, recyclable plastic tote that can be utilized repeatedly to avoid the landfill waste created by one-time-use packaging.
“Our core focus continues to be providing environmentally friendly reusable container solutions that ultimately help our customers attain their sustainability goals by cutting cost, eliminating waste, and mitigating risk in their supply chains,” said CAPS CEO Robert Wiedmaier.
Since 1998, CAPS has helped food, beverage, cosmetic and non-hazardous chemical manufacturers implement sustainable business practices with reusable shipping containers. To learn more about CAPS’ container management programs, visit www.usecaps.com.
