Ocean Spray has implemented two distribution initiatives that combined have led to a 20 percent reduction in transportation CO2 emissions, while achieving comparable cost savings across the transportation network.
The first initiative was an intermodal shift from road to rail. The company, rail operator CSX and fruit shipping companies partnered to enable Ocean Spray to ship more products intermodally from its New Jersey distribution center to its Florida facility, according to a case study published by MIT.
