Magazine’s Going Green Award, honoring those companies leading Michigan’s green sector.

“GreenLanes was developed as a sustainable business model that reduces wasted capacity and takes unneeded trucks off the road,” said Chris Timmer, SVP of Marketing and Business Development, LeanLogistics. “This service gives customers with a corporate mandate to reduce carbon footprint a solid supply chain strategy to meet those objectives. We’re pleased to be recognized for this technology and our commitment to green transportation solutions.”
