US Company honored by Chamber of Shipping of America & Supply & Demand Chain Executive Magazine.

Horizon Lines was recognized for outstanding achievement in environmental excellence by the CSA at a recent ceremony in Washington, D.C.  Additionally, the company has been named one of the 2012 Green Supply Chain Award winners by Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine in its December issue.

CSA awarded eight Horizon Lines vessels with Environmental Achievement Awards, which recognize vessels that have operated without environmental incidents for at least two years.  The eight Horizon Lines vessels have operated a combined 64 years without an environmental incident.  The certificates were presented to the Horizon Challenger (9 years), Horizon Discovery (7 years), Horizon Kodiak (11 years), Horizon Navigator (2 years), Horizon Pacific (12 years), Horizon Producer (9 years), Horizon Reliance (11 years), and Horizon Trader (3 years). The award certificates were presented to Captain Timothy Close, USCG (ret.), who is the company's Director of Safety, Security & Environmental Health.

In addition, Horizon Lines has been recognized for environmental stewardship with a 2012 Green Supply Chain Award from Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine. This year's fifth annual awards honor companies that leverage green practices and solutions to further drive sustainable improvements in their supply chain.

Horizon Lines' sustainability efforts have resulted in an estimated emissions reduction of 231,000 tons of CO2 over the past six years through the company's fuel conservation and emissions program.
