Transportation and Logistics Loading...

At Chicken of the Sea, a majority of our carbon footprint comes from freight transportation. It is important that we work to find a broad spectrum of ways to decrease our transportation miles and emissions. Below are some of the approaches that we are implementing to try and reduce our carbon footprint:

  • Network Optimization: We are working to enhance our data systems related to freight, transportation and logistics. Better analysis will help us identify where there are inefficiencies in our transportation systems and maximize our loads coming in and out of facilities.
  • Replenish Order Efficiency: We get the best efficiency by shipping full loads into and out of our facilities. We are constantly looking for ways to ensure that empty space gets filled - either by our products or by co-shipping with other businesses. 
  • Direct Customer Shipments/Pick Ups: We ask customers to take Direct Door deliveries from our factories and/or Lyons Georgia pickup. This reduces our transportation costs and incentivizes our customers to focus on efficiency for their own bottom line.

Shifts in Shipping Emissions

Tuna are found around the world, and even individual schools of tuna can travel great distances as they search for food in vast oceans. Our business requires that we go where the fish are, and sometimes that means relying on catches made in distant locations. We have little control over this area of our carbon footprint and so we focus our efforts primarily on optimizing our ground transit. This is an area that will require additional collaboration with our supply chain.
