KANE is committed to reducing carbon emissions, pollution and congestion with smarter trucks and delivery methods. KANE’s Collaborative Distribution program, for example, pools the inventory and shipments of middle-market consumer goods manufacturers so common retail customers can receive fewer, larger shipments. This reduces distribution costs as much as 35% and also reduces emissions, as the same volume of goods is delivered using fewer trucks. Read the Sun-Maid Story.
KANE green logistics features include:
KANE facilities couple energy-efficient T5 lighting with motion sensors. T5 lighting lasts 2-3 times longer than metal halide lamps, generating savings of $260,000 dollars and 3.5 million kilowatt-hours annually.
