This Week in Logistics: Sustainability improvements in the supply chain, company collaborations, and cargo theft

Sustainability continues to be big news in the global supply chain, and many global brands have put timeframes on sustainability efforts. One notable example is McDonald’s USA, which pledged to make its coffee supply chain 100 percent sustainable by the end of 2020. I saw late last week that the company had achieved its goal a full year ahead of schedule. Coffee for McDonald’s USA restaurants is verified sustainable through McDonald’s McCafé Sustainability Improvement Platform (SIP), a coffee sustainability program developed in partnership with Conservation International, or sourced from Rainforest Alliance Certified farms. Through the program, McDonald’s has invested in the future of coffee growers and their communities by offering training, community support, reducing water consumption, and planting new coffee trees while rehabilitating more. In the grand scheme, this is a step in the right direction for a more sustainable supply chain. And now on to this week’s logistics news.
