CJ Logistics America www.cjlogisticsamerica.com CJ Logistics America continues to identify sustainability projects to implement in partnership with its customers. The company tracks performance on six key metrics—electricity, natural gas, propane, water, recycled tonnage, and waste tonnage. It also monitors the performance of each location, identifies the most promising network-wide projects, and sets goals to reduce its carbon footprint. CJ Logistics’ transportation-focused sustainability efforts include consolidated shipping for which it tracks carbon savings month over month, SmartWay certification, and a strict no-idle policy. The company regularly engages in large-scale network modeling projects for many customers.
