UPS Leading The Charge On Efficient Packaging

United Parcel Service, Inc.

I ran across this a few days back from UPS. They’ve started an earth-friendly packaging program encouraging efficiency and conservation.

Through its Eco Responsible Packaging Program, a new contractually based service the company is calling the first of its kind, UPS will evaluate a customer’s shipment packaging processes in three key areas — damage prevention, right-sizing and packaging materials.

I haven’t researched whether any of other logistics companies have similar programs, but it appears UPS is taking the lead so far. Like Wal-Mart and IBM, they have a chance to carry the torch and set some standards. Bravo.
