Jarrett Named to Food Logistics’ 2019 Top Green Providers List

Posted by Gabe Ellis on Jun 24, 2019 3:02:25 PM


The annual Top Green Providers list showcases companies that have found new ways to promote sustainability throughout their operations and to their clients.

Orrville, OH, June 25, 2019— For the last two years, Jarrett has participated in a Paperless Initiative. By the end of 2018, 90 percent of all incoming invoices were submitted electronically.

Over 355,000 invoices have come through digitally over the last two years, with an expectation that over 225,000 invoices will be incoming electronically just this year alone.

The Paperless Initiative is now integrated in the carrier on-boarding process. Currently, 26 of 33 carriers utilized are part of the sustainability program, empowering Jarrett to identify accurate billing information at a faster clip for food and beverage clients.

“The Paperless Invoicing Initiative allows Jarrett to drastically decrease the time it takes to process freight bills, and minimizes the opportunity for human error. Electronic freight bills give our operations team immediate visibility within our proprietary TMS system (jShip), providing yet another way for the JLS Routing Center to deliver efficient, personalized service to our clients.”

– Kerry Ward, Lead IT Project Coordinator

Recipients of this year's Food Logistics Top Green Providers 2019 will be featured on the Food Logistics website here.
